Freedom of Expression? My Foot!


I am not able to understand what 'freedom of expression' are 'Art Experts' talking about, when they defend this picture. Am I missing something?

Read this.

I think this is pretty senseless, considering religion is a very touchy issue.

Me first.... :D..Hmm.....senseless it might be...but it is best ignored rather than make an issue of it...if we go down the path of censorship...who is gonna decide what is the limit...Remember Taliban??.... Art much like religion.. is best left to each person's sensibiity... Treat it like a movie....if you think its bad... just dont go to watch it.

Chalo Cheers and Take Care!

SR...

yeah.. you have a point when you say when it's up to each other's sensibilities..

[P.S. But I am still wondering how...? :D]

We can only sulk and crib.. As SR says, it's best left to each person's sensibility!
Digression- Nothing can be more blasphemous than the mega-serials! (crap running on TV) And what the content.. God save the world!

Sindhu :) said...

Swati..

:)) Totally agree with you!

Mega-serials are total kodumai!!!

This is always a tricky issue.... What is deemed as freedom of expression and what is not... Who draws the line and who decides... Its an age old dilemma...

Sindhu :) said...

Zephie..

:)) Seems like I am the only one who got a little too carried away by looking at this picture! :D

Hmm.. need to think lesser about such controversial things :D

And yeah.. you are right! Its something that's been going on for a loooong time!! Such good examples we have in India itself :D

A person thought should be globally accepted always not only in his/her region.

Sindhu :) said...

Hobo!

That was my point exactly!

Don't know how it can be called freedom of expression when it can be so blatantly controversial.

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be very good.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘Welcome Home.... :) :)’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,

swattalk said...

Sindhu, I tried my best to do that tag.. But I can't seem to :( Editor has been posing stupid problems.
How can I make up for it? And what's the ordeal like for not doing the tag? :D

Sindhu :) said...

Hey.. no ordeal and all.. :D Its ok..

lots of ppl seem to be facing that problem somehow .. :D

But yeah.. if I think of anything else.. I will let you know what the ordeal will be at that time :D

i wonder how ppl manage to get so insensitive about others. maybe they sould follow the ground rule, put yourself in other's shoes before doing anything to them...

Sindhu :) said...
