When I think of the blog ban, I wonder if we are going back in history. Didn`t somebody who lived as early as the 17th century say: “I may disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the very end, your right to say it.” By the way, that was Voltaire.
While reading the newspapers today morning I came across an awesomely written article on the blog ban in India. Click Here to read the article written in Indian Express by Saubhik Chakrabarti.
This blog ban raises a few more questions – Can`t I get the feed for these banned blogs in my feed-reader and read the anti-social posts? Can`t I reach these blogs thro` Google Search? How are the ISPs going to compensate me for the mental agony I have been thro` since they blocked the blogs? Will they waive off my broadband fee …like how an erring hotel gives me an on-the-house dish?
