WHERE DEATH ATTRACTS PENALTY
Till now we have heard only of Death Penalty being given to criminals for the rarest of rare crimes, but the mayor of a village in Southwest France has announced severe punishment to anyone who dies in the village (Courtesy : The Business Line, 07.03.2008). The reason being no room left in the local Cementery to bury the dead. So only those people who have a plot in the Cemetary are permitted to die in the village.
Where is the world moving to? At a time when people find it hard to buy themselves a home to live in, it is indeed the height of agony when you need a place to die too.
