I thank all my readers for extending support when my world went dark for a short period. I thank all those who expressed concern over India slapping a ban on blogging. Your voice is heard where ever you are, from any part of the world.
The ban was lifted last night
India has always been a free country, there is more freedom here than anywhere else in the world, more freedom, perhaps too much freedom
That is our problem
Too much freedom.
This picture tells you the story. I always use this picture to show our living condition. The boat is barely a few inches above the surface of water. Tightly packed, one more person would sink the boat. It can't take any more. You have Hindus Muslims, Buddhists Sikhs Christians in there
There is hardly any elbow room,
but there's a world of room in their hearts. they live in harmony all the time
But sometimes things go wrong.
In such a fragile country we have to use our freedom with extreme caution.
How much freedom should be allowed ?
Our constitution guarentees all kinds of freedom
how are we using it ?
If two persons insult each other and start exchanging blows, the boat would sink
They all have the freedom to express themselves.
Slightest irresponsible act would damage the peaceful atmosphere, hundreds of innocent lives are lost as a result, in riots and communal and political clashes.
I don't blame the government for slapping the ban,
We are pretty reckless with our freedom
