Attack on freedom of speech

The recent events when two girls were arrested for making a harmless “comment” on Facebook reminded me of the infamous cheerharan of Draupadi. This time, it was the cheeraharan of our democracy: stripped of its freedom of speech.

In Mahabharat, Krishna was there to save Draupadi. Who will stop this cheerharan of democracy is still an unanswered question.
