Editorial

Chers Amis, Kem chho?

Même si je suis arrivé à Ahmedabad il y a quelques semaines déjà, ce premier édito est l’occasion pour moi de vous dire à quel point je suis heureux d’être parmi vous.

Ma première visite en Inde remonte à il y a plus d’une vingtaine d’années et je me souviens de cette promesse que je m’étais faite d’y vivre et d’y travailler un jour, tant ce pays m’a fasciné dès les premiers instants. Mon vœu s’est réalisé et je me sens particulièrement chanceux, d’être non seulement Directeur d’une Alliance Française en Inde, mais plus encore ici, à Ahmedabad, dans une ville si riche culturellement, si dynamique et si accueillante.

Notre Alliance qui vient de fêter ses quarante ans peut s’enorgueillir d’un formidable parcours, grâce à tous ceux et toutes celles qui l’ont façonnée et développée. Après deux années difficiles, la vie a repris son cours et c’est pour nous tous le moment d’imaginer l’Alliance de demain… je l’aimerais encore plus accueillante, plus moderne, plus inclusive. Je la souhaite animée par votre présence régulière, à nos cours, à nos événements, qu’elle soit plus que jamais un lieu d’échange, d’apprentissage, de découverte et de création. Je suis convaincu que la mission de notre Alliance est essentielle, car elle s’articule autour de valeurs fondamentales de dialogue, d’ouverture, d’enrichissement mutuel et de tolérance.

Il me tarde d’écrire ce nouveau chapitre de la vie de l’Alliance Française d’Ahmedabad avec vous.

Dear Friends,

Even though I have been in Ahmedabad for a few weeks already, this first editorial is an opportunity for me to tell you how happy I am to be here.

My first visit to India goes back to more than twenty years ago and I was instantly fascinated by this country. I remember making a promise to myself that I would one day work and live here. My wish was granted and I feel blessed, not only being the Director of an Alliance Française in India, but even more in Ahmedabad - a city that is culturally so strong and dynamic and so welcoming.

Our Alliance has just celebrated its 40th birthday and all those who took part in its conception and development can take pride in its achievements. After two tough years, life has almost gone back to normal, so it is time for us to imagine the Alliance of tomorrow… I would like it to be even more welcoming, modern, and inclusive. I wish it to be thriving thanks to your involvement in our classes and events, to be more than ever a place where people exchange ideas, learn, discover, and create. I am convinced that the mission of our Alliance is essential, for it is based on fundamental values: dialogue, open-mindedness, mutual enrichment, and tolerance.

I cannot wait to write this new chapter in the life of Alliance Française d’Ahmedabad with you.

Emmanuel

Testimonials

I began my journey as a student with Alliance Française Baroda for A1 in July 2022 and have been associated with them since. Currently pursuing A2 with the weekday batch, I have had the opportunity to dive into the language not only theoretically but also through certain engaging activities. The faculty is very professional and understanding and provide the students with ample time and support to ensure proper understanding of the French language and culture along with ensuring completion of targets for each level. What’s more is that the AF resources such as the library and online platforms that the students get access to give us all the additional support we need. For me, what separates AF from other institutions is that AF assists the students to divulge into the French culture of which language is a big part and doesn’t just focus on being a language school, which was my reason to associate with them.

I am very glad to be a part of Alliance Française Baroda and would recommend it to everyone.

La France remporte le 16e prix Nobel de littérature !

Annie Ernaux, dont les œuvres sont profondément influencées par Simone de Beauvoir et Pierre Bourdieu, est devenue la première femme française à recevoir le prix Nobel de littérature le 6 octobre 2022. Largement connue comme la mère de l’autofiction sociologique contemporaine, Ernaux affirme écrire "quelque chose entre la littérature, la sociologie et l’histoire".

“La vie, c’est comme une bicyclette, Il faut avancer pour ne pas perdre l’équilibre.”

Le parcours que le destin prendra N’est jamais entièrement prévisible. Ce dilemme d’avancer ou de m’arrêter Sur moi est exigible; Quoi faire désormais - c’est une question existentielle, La réponse à laquelle est cible.

“La vie c’est comme une bicyclette, Il faut avancer pour ne pas perdre l’équilibre.”

Ces sages paraboles d’Albert autrefois me semblaient irrépréhensible. Je ne sais pas encore quoi faire Du tout dans la vie pas dirigible, En me sentant écarté dans ce monde Qui un jour deviendra putrescible.

The students of Alliance Française d’Ahmedabad can send their entries to culture.ahmedabad@afindia.org to get them published here.
