Objective: we feel strongly towards making a case for 'free and fearless speech' and making a case against censorious minds and the practice of censorship. Rationale: The issue of censorship is an important concern for us. In order to be a mature democracy that India aspires to be, we need reform, not only in the archaic and colonial law, but also in its reading, and the mindset which aims to nip in the bud any dissent. If we let the repressive state elements take root it will not leave room for any negotiation through ruptures, which may offer resistance.
