    The French don´t know what they are doing. If such an anti-Hinduin Hindustan can get a French reward, what is the meaning of thisreward not only, but a man without any respect misusing Hindu namesas Gauri, Ram and Ohm. The French have lost their mind. Napoleoncould rule Europe for a while, but was he a real great man?

      The French have no love or respect for India. Obviously they will reward such anti-indians
