In a Democracy, people are supposed to be amture & free to speak, to read & to choose what they want to buy, sell & own. without such freedoms the word has no meaning.
Some of us still harbour illusions that India is a democracy just because we elect our government (lord & masters?). However, for a democratic setup we do seem to have some pretty odd ways of demonstrating our commitment to the democratic ideals of freedom , justice & equality.
This is the latest wake-up call. The Indian government has decided to block blogs on Blogspot & Typepad. Further, as per CERT-IN’s Director, Dr Gulshan Rai, “Somebody must have blocked some sites. What is your problem?”
I guess I have nothing further to say!
