Am seeing activism since last 2 days in Indian media on bans and restrictions by government on individual freedom. It is Government’s responsibility to impose a ban if something is not correct or fair. Otherwise a diverse country of millions of people with different views will become a herd of animals not in control.
Indian Press and some of the people believe that they have got infinite freedom. One has to understand that freedom is finite and we have to follow some rules or codes of conduct. We cannot be doing anything that we like as individuals but is not good for the society.
Our genesis stems into the cohesiveness and togetherness, giving priority to collective goals than individual goals, which is opposite to western culture. In democracy, one has to understand that his/her freedom ends where other’s freedom starts.
We need to be mature and understand that Indian culture and democracy is unique and distinct and we should not blindly ask for individualism. Instead be more accomodative and give space to others also and do not ask empty space for you alone in this crowded country.
