Exiled Taslima

Taslima, it seems, has lost her favourite city Kolkata for ever. Bengal Government does not want her back. The UPA government in Delhi, ever eager to please its ally, has decided to keep her on a tight lease in some remote place in India. A caveat has been served on her to the effect that she must not write any stuff that can hurt the sentiments of "our people".

How absurd! India is the land of a wide viariety of people with different tastes, cultures and stupidities. How can you write real stuff without hurting any of them? And who's going to judge your writing?
