'Meerut Military Cemetery, France- What a pity my French friends- Quelle dommage mes amis Francais' by K.J.S.Chatrath



 
 
Remarks recorded by me in the Visitors Book of the Meerut Military Cemetery at Boulognes St. Jacques in France. I was dismayed to find that no one in this town remembers the sacrifice made by the 318 Indian and Nepalese soldiers and non-combatants who died saving France and who lie commemorated but forgotten here.

What a pity my French friends! Quelle dommage mes amis Francais!

'Oh...these French and their language' by K.J.S.Chatrath




A French man arrives home unexpectedly early from the office to find his wife in the arms of a lover.

"Madame," he says. "I am surprised!" 

The wife replies: "No, Monsieur: we are surprised. You are astonished."

Exact use of language is so important!
