De plus, cette ville est divisée en diverses “communautés”( Aspiration, Certitude, Révélation, Surrender, Arati, Gaia etc.,) qui jouent tous leur rôle pour atteindre le but de cette ideologie utopique.

Relish This International Feel !

When someone starts talking about FRENCH, the first thing that we think about is the beautiful city of Paris or the magnificent iconic world wonder, the Eiffel tower or “La Tour Eiffel” as the French call it !  To the world, French is a language of love, romance and anything beautiful and exotic, but French is not only about “ l’amour  “. We all celebrate the true spirit of affection, attraction, admiration and boundless love with this language along with its rich history and inspiring literature,  be it the French revolution or its amazing paintings or new wave films etc.

French is also a very potent and an extremely powerful language. There are amazing expressions and modes of communication which will make you a true blue fan of this international language. Added to it, are its fascinating ways of pronunciations adding flamboyance and style with a European flash.  It is so true that we do not say the word like in French, but instead love. French is always LOVELY.

French remains one the most diplomatic languages of the world for it is one of the official language in 29 countries of the world and is spoken as the first language in Canada, parts of the US, western Switzerland, Belgium , Monaco and obviously in France !

French is the fourth most widely spoken mother tongue in the European Union. Owing to its long history as an international language of commerce and literature, French is one of the official languages of international organisations including the United Nations, the European Union, the World Trade Organisation, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the International Olympic Committee and many others. It is also a working language of numerous non-profit organisations. This language is considered an asset for business owners and hence this makes French the most sought after foreign language ahead of German and Spanish. The cultural and economic credits of this language are never ending.

Despite French being such a versatile language, it is one of the easiest to learn and understand.

Like many other European languages it has the same Roman script as English. For an English speaking person, it would only take a maximum seven hundred hours of French training to talk and write French with almost no difficulty what so ever. There are countless opportunities that await a Francophone especially in our nation.

Monsieur, where is my Travail (Job) ??

The situation presently in France after the terrorist attack seems to be highly cautious and proactive in terms of defence and security measures. Now France being a major global leader in peacekeeping operations seems to sadly have been on the wrong side of revenge based terrorist attacks.

fr 9

Coming to the economy, France has not been able to generate a lot of jobs post the recession and 2008 global crisis. The heavy taxation benefiting the social security welfare schemes, the rising costs of living as well as the unemployment rate standing at 11 percent presently has turned out to become a tragedy for the French government in employment and job creation

fr 10

Regular strikes like the recent bus and transport strikes as well as workers strike in Airbus industry has overall let down people’s expectations in terms of their aspirations and ambitions to achieve or climb to top ladders in the job market.

Majorly in the regions of Ile de Paris as well as the North and the East region, the industries and agriculture related jobs generally thrive . Half of the French population are employed in tertiary private sector with a 33 percent in Govt sectors and 14 percent in the industries and agricultural domain. The tourism industry alone employs 1 million plus people in the sector.

fr 8

As a leading industrial and a financial superpower with manufactures like Citroen, St Gobain , Total, Airbus, Sanofi, L’Oreal, Puegot, Alstom, Dassault, Lafarge and Schneider Electric etc along with financial chains like Societe Generale and BNP Paribas , France has an amazing list of top class enterprises credited with global acclaim. But either due to technical or global issues, sadly the skill gaps and the right employees for recruitment are not able to be injected into the workforce

The French people give high priority for skills and qualifications along with a major thrust of functional usage of the French language if foreigners or expats wish to apply for jobs. Work permit is easy for EU national except for a Croatian national, where a master’s equivalent is obligatory for granting the permit. Otherwise for other citizens they must be earning a certain specified amount in order to be granted a generous work permit time period.

fr 7

Now certainly factors like more serious governance by politicians in reskilling the workforce by special apprenticeship initiatives akin to Obama’s policy in notably reducing the American unemployment rate as well as focussing on interesting mergers and tie ups coupled with negotiating strongly with the union leaders must be a continuous pursuit for fixing these issues.

fr 6

Recently using the rare clause of 149 as per the French Constitution, the Prime Minister Mr Manuel Vals had passed a presidential decree in relaxing the controversial labour law which was propagating easy methods to hire and fire along with many other issues that had irritated the labour community.

Strikes are very common because of the union’s influence in France. Suitably these issues can only be fixed by willful and strong decision making demonstrated by aggressive political steps in initiating reforms along with tightening the grip in the job markets and education sectors by allowing flexible options in parallel with reduction in taxation.

fr 4

The only good news is that the recent rating by the international credit rating agency Moody Investors Inc has come up with a positive statement emphasizing that the customers and the loan defaulters will not be affected with the present unemployment rate.

fr 2

Despite the terrorist attacks , global economic meltdown, huge NPAs leading the banks to the brink of collapse, high unemployment rate, frequent labour strikes and European refugee crisis, France remains to be a superpower though weakened by external and internal distractions.

I have full confidence that France will come back to the top pedestal in global rankings once these creative and smart strategic steps are being taken care with a long term perspective.

Can Monsieur Hollande traverse this path and conquer the challenge ?

Let us wait and watch!!!!!!!!!!!

Le Sirop D’érable : A product of Quebec

Maple which is a very famous shrub and a tree with its beautiful creation called sap is commonly found in the Canadian region of Quebec .

ms 1
In the cold winter seasons in Canada amidst the sky with its Alaskan wilderness, the sap is generally collected from the tree and processed retaining its 100 percent purity.

ms 2
It tastes like honey and adds very less calories to all the items when it is being mixed. It is rich in anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory substances, rich chemicals and nutrients for fighting cancer. It also improves the skin health as well as used as a better medium for digestion, apart from being the best alternative to artificial sweeteners since it contains less amount of fructose and low glycemic Index.

ms 3
Maple syrup is obtained from the maple tree after some few taps after which it is taken to the sugar house. There it is placed in an evaporator where water gets evaporated producing more quantity of pure sap that is more sweeter and denser.
A typical product of the Quebec region, the Sirop D’e’rable is only found in USA apart from this Canadian paradise. Two spoons being added to sausages or oats or morning meals ( NOT idli or dosa please !!!!!) will certainly be an added healthy proponent in order to enhance the taste as well as the nutritional value.

ms 4

Please do taste it if you get a chance to do so!!!!!!!

Let your lives become sweeter!!!!!!
