A French Baker Fined For Not Taking Leave & Working More, Sounds Weird But True

We Indians are always complaining of not getting proper salary and enough leaves but what will be your reaction if we tell you that a baker in France was fined heavily for not taking a single leave during the summer season of 2017.

Cedric Vaivre (41), is the owner of bakery named as Lake Bakey situated in Lusigny-sur-Barse, 120 miles from Paris. He kept his business open for seven days a week in the summer of 2017 and this was against the employment and labour laws of the country.

The government has imposed a fine of $3,600 (₹2.5 lakh) on Cedric and this has angered the local community. Christian Branle, the mayor of Lusigny-sur-Barse has also slammed the government for treating a hard-working baker like this, he said,

"These kind of laws are killing our businesses. You have to show some common sense if you’re a small rural community in an area where there is not a lot of competition."

Talking about the increase in number of visitors during summer, Branle also said,

"We need to allow people to work when visitors need this service."

Till now, over 500 people have signed a petition supporting Cedric who is no mood to pay the fine. As per the local labour laws of Aube department under whose jurisdiction, Lusigny-sur-Barse comes, small businesses need to close for one day in a week and work for maximum six days in a week.

In France, rules are very strict as far as functioning of bakeries is concerned as providing bread is considered as a sacred right.

What is your take in this matter, do let us know.

Sunil Grover Said That He Didn’t Got Call For Family Time With Kapil Sharma

Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover are among the best stand-up comedians of all times and it was no less than a visual treat for fans to watch them together. However, after the ugly spat which took place between them in a flight while returning from Australia, it appears to be a dream or almost impossible to see them sharing the screen space.

Nevertheless, when the news of Kapil’s new show on Sony TV, i.e., Family Time With Kapil Sharma, started doing rounds and the channel even released few promos, fans were expecting that they might get to see Sunil also in the same show.

Well, there’s some bad news for fans of Sunil as the comedian himself disclosed that he didn’t get any call for Family Time With Kapil Sharma. He has also revealed that he still has the same contact no. and as he was not approached for the show, he signed another project recently.

Here’s what Sunil Grover tweeted when a fan asked him to come back on Kapil’s show,

“Bhai aap jaise kuch aur log bhi mujhse same poochte hain. Lekin mujhe iss show ke liye KOI call nahin aaya. Mera phone number bhi same hai. Intezar kar Ke ab maine kuch aur sign kar liya kal. Aap logon ki duaon se ek achhe project Ke sath juda hoon. Jaldi aapke samne Aata hoon🙏”

Interestingly, Sunil was recently spotted with Shilpa Shinde, the popular TV actress who won Bigg Boss 11. Creative producer of CNWK and TKSS, Preeti Simoes shared the pics of Sunil and Shilpa on the photo-sharing site Instagram. Are these two are coming up with something new?

Lately during an interaction with a news agency, Kapil told,

“I think Sunil got more angry after seeing himself in news. Because he was not so angry (when the incident happened). I have said enough from my side, and now I don’t feel like talking about it. It happens between friends but can't hold a grudge forever. Then I will also start feeling that ‘mein galat nahi hun’.”

Well, it looks as if Kapil and Sunil have not buried the past till now. What do you say?

Bollywood Actor Irrfan Khan Took To Twitter & Opened About His Illness

Irrfan Khan, one of the most talented and famous actors of Indian cinema shocked everyone when he told everyone that he is suffering from a rare disease. 

Not just his fans but the whole Bollywood was concerned about him but many rumours also surfaced about him suffering from a brain disease or him going London for treatment.

Bringing an end to all the rumours, Irrfan has taken to Twitter and cleared all the doubts by revealing that he is suffering from ‘neuroendocrine tumour’.

He tweeted,  

"Life is under no obligation to give us what we expect". - Margaret Mitchell

The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated NEURO is not always about the brain and googling is the easiest way to do research 😉 To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell"

We pray for the speedy recovery of the actor.
