EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

Free Speech does not just comprise of the liberty to express one's thoughts and opinions freely and fearlessly, but also covers the whole range of creative expressions through all modes and mediums of communication. From fiction, poetry and paintings to radio programs, television and cinema, free speech is guaranteed across the board.

However, being a powerful tool, freedom of speech must be exercised responsibly, failing which it can also do a great deal of harm. But then, who is to say how freedom of speech must and must not be exercised? Any encumbrances on free speech is bound to be frowned upon by the liberal, democratic societies. And when it comes to artistic expressions, the domain of permissibility has to be even more liberally construed because works of art communicate by allusions, impressions and suggestions.

Therefore, speech and expression deserves to be rigidly regulated in its objectionable forms like hate speeches, but it must be given a wider and more liberal playfield in the artistic mode so long as cheap sensationalization is not passed off as art.
