NEW DELHI: Naina de Bois-Juzan had planned an elegant post-Diwali weekend for her restaurant Le Bistro du Parc in Delhi. But the attack in Paris has left her and her plans devastated.

Speaking to The Hindu, Ms. Bois-Juzan said Paris for her has been an eternal city and she loved visiting Paris while connecting with her roots. But the multiple attacks on the French capital will leave the city permanentl­y altered.

“Despite the world changing so much, Paris never changed. Paris has a timeless character. But as you can understand, an attack of such a magnitude will definitely change the city. We are still under shock and trying to come to terms with the aftermath of this massive attack,” Ms Bois-Juzan told The

Hindu.

The attack in Paris is also an attack on the heart of the Francophon­e world, said Tunisian diplomat Akram El Atar.

In fact, Francophon­e Tunisia’s President Beji Caid Essebsi reached Paris on Saturday and personally conveyed his condolence­s for the attacks to President Hollande.
