Highest Mexican honour conferred on Mumbai honorary consul

To mark the 208th Anniversary celebrations of Mexican Independence, the Embassy of Mexico in India honored Rajnikant Devidas Shroff, Mexico’s honorary consul in Mumbai, with the 'Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle'.

The decoration of the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle (Orden Mexicana del Águila Azteca) is the highest distinction awarded by the Mexico to foreigners in recognition of their outstanding services to Mexico or to humanity.

At a glittering ceremony recently to celebrate Mexico’s National Day in Mumbai, H.E. Melba Pría, Ambassador of Mexico to India, presented the insignia to Rajju Shroff, Chairman & Managing Director, UPL, in the presence of distinguished guests from the business and social fraternity.

The award stands as a testament to Rajju Shroff’s outstanding contributions as Honorary Consul of Mexico in Mumbai since 1998, towards strengthening the commercial and cultural relationship between Mexico and India, as well as his exemplary consular work in favour of Mexicans in that city.

Shroff is the longest serving active honorary consul of Mexico in India, and in the past 20 years has worked tirelessly towards organising various important activities in favour of the relationship between Mexico and India, such as high-level meetings, seminars and promotional events in Mumbai, in collaboration with the Embassy of Mexico in India and ProMéxico, besides providing constant support to Mexicans in need of consular assistance and protection within Mumbai.

Last year, when the largest instructional vessel in the Mexican Navy, Cuauhtémoc, docked on the ports of Mumbai, the honorary consulate in Mumbai was instrumental in extending support for the Mexican crew and cadets to participate in activities to bond with their counterparts from the Indian Navy.

The Royal Eagle is Mexico’s national animal and was considered sacred for the Aztecs.
