While sipping on ranonapango, the traditional drink of Madagascar made from burnt rice, Scorch said, “The Malagasy people are so nice! And they take such good care of nature.”

Then Verum looked into her crystal ball and said, “Speaking of Malagasy folks and their love of Mother Nature, Dr. Albert Rakoto Ratsimamanga is the most well-known scientist from Madagascar.

He did extensive research to better understand the healing powers of the native flora of the island. He founded the Malagasy Institute of Applied Research (IMRA). He even worked to find remedies for diabetes. Since he dedicated his life to the betterment of those less privileged than him, his fellow citizens honored him as ‘the Malagasy Man of the 20th century’.”

“What an amazing man!” thought Orak.
