Man gets the right to ‘freedom of perception’ just from ‘the womb’ of his mother; however, after birth he has to depend on some ‘article’ of the Constitution for the right to ‘freedom of expression.’ If it is not an irony, then what is it that man, while adhering to the particular ‘article’ of the Constitution, has to use an ‘interrogative word’, ‘negative word order’, ‘question mark’, ‘mark of exclamation’, ‘dot-dot-dot-full-stop’ etc. for his ‘free ideological expression’ in the present world. Many people of the country as well as the world, without even pondering over it, may refute this point of concern by simply calling it ‘a way of expression’; but considering it just ‘a way of expression’ does not solve the problem.
There is another formidable problem in today’s world which compels us to think. There seems to be a tendency to follow some ‘powerful person’, some ‘fanatic belief’ or some ‘ideological intolerance.’ Due to the development of such irrational tendencies, the process of qualitative reasoning and fruitful dialogue is slowing down, and, therefore, the ‘free ideological expression’ is also being curtailed. Even in these odd situations, there are some such pure and fearless thinkers among us, who are expressing their intense feelings and presenting meaningful and useful thoughts in new forms. In this regard, Swami Vivekananda gives us a lot of courage―
All power is within you; you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak; do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics, as most of us do nowadays. You can do anything and everything, without even the guidance of any one. Stand up and express the divinity within you.
All the best!
