The chairman of the Center and noted Ramayana scholar, Rajendra Arun, said the institution would be developed as a learning center to promote teachings of Ramayana, a constant source of inspiration and strength to the Indian diaspora. Additionally, a fifty-foot statue of Hanuman will be erected. In a congratulatory message, Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee commended this effort and praised Mauritius for having preserved the legacy of the Ramayana for succeeding generations.
