A Novel Method..to assert [legal and fair] Freedom of Expression

The Cheif Minister of Paschim Bangla seems to have made up her mind to remain at the epiceter of controversies.

She seems to have been caught this time, in a warp, not heard in any democratic state – alleged impriosnment of a university professsor, on the basis of a complaint by her party cadre member that the professor was spreading her cartoons via e-mails.

Here is a link to 49 cartoons [http://cartoonexhibition.blogspot.in/2012/04/cartoons-mamta-banerjee.html],put up on their site by Kerala Cartoon Academy.

The reason for placing it on this blog  is only to support the campaign against whimsical arrest of a cartoonist by W.B Govt.

Cartoons may not all be great but the spirit of protest is the idea.

In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
