Ban on Veil
France has banned niqab and burqa. It started fining 150 Euros on women wearing burqa, in April 2011.
Educated women may have a strong desire to stop wearing the veil. Their parents/husbands may be compelling them to hide themselves beyond limits. Burqas and Niqabs suffocate women.
The Government of France should examine levying the penalty on the husbands and parents of the women wearing the veil. Disincentives and punishments should go to the abetters and inciters and not to the puppets. Taking this philosophy further, the punishments should go to those religious preachers who have been misleading/threatening well-meaning people, in the name of religious traditions.
BIKINIES and SWIM-SUITSWhat useful purpose the bikinies and swim-suits serve, except when a woman participates in a swimming event? Very often, these are worn just to make money by attracting crowds and sales. The original objectives of wearing a bikini/swim suit, such as ventilation, some sun-bathing etc. have lost their utility value. They , now have only provocative value.
The publicity which the President's wife gets by wearing provocative dresses, serves as the best example.Will the French Government prove its sincerity by banning bikinis/swim-suits in public places (other than in sports competitions and films where the stories and themes justify such dress)?
Will the French President pay some token penalty for the lapses of his First Lady?

The French President Mr. Sarkozy wants European Small and medium Enterprises to have the same protection which the American Small Enterprises have in their own country.
Mr. Sarkozy is a match for George Bush. But Mr. Bush is not going to stay long. Why does the world's history revolve around the three: US, UK and France?
The French President Sarkozy urged US and China to open up their markets. Bush and Brown want France to open up its markets.
It is like two rams on a narrow bridge, asking one another two give way. Finally they dash one another and fall in the ravine.

PRICES AND VALUES
If Napoleon's sword fetched US$6.4 million, how much would a shroud of St. Joanes (Joan of Arc) will fetch? People of measurable contributions will get measureable amounts. Truly great persons will not leave material possessions and their invaluable sacrifices remain in eternity.
