Our affinity with France

Like the communists nurturing extra-national sympathies earlier for USSR and now for China, or Muslims’ sense of affiliation with UAE or Pakistan; Savitri Erans, too, harbour an affinity with France. French being our “Mother-tongue” we yearn to learn it as much as possible and rue over the fact that the Rues of Puducherry are a vanishing breed. It is difficult to speculate of the role France performs within the EU in the years ahead or the fate of the French language, for that matter, with their economy passing through a rough phase. We continue to be their friends regardless. [TNM]
