Freedom of speech, ants and elephants

If the Government really wants to clamp down on freedom of speech, they should have the courage to go after the biggies. Not poor anonymous bloggers and tweeters who are giving vent to their frustration, who merely write, “Everyday thousands of people die. But still the world moves on. Just due to one politician dead. A natural death. Everyone goes crazy.When was the last time did any one show some respect or even two minutes silence for Shahid Bhagat singh, Asad, Sukhdev or any of the people because of whom we are free living Indians.Respect is earned not given.And definitely not forced.”.

There is an editorial in The Hindu today and another column by Katju, which are more scathing, and rightly so. Then why choose this unknown, harmless young woman?Earlier, why did Karthi Chidambaram choose another unknown activist in Puducherry? Why not Subramanian Swamy? Why not Kejriwal?

Stop smacking the ants. Fight the elephants if you must.
