Believe me! My freedom ends at the tip of your noseLet me begin with a quote from the famous speech by Pt Jawaharlal Nehru on the eve of our Independence, "At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the whole world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom". I don't think he meant absolute freedom because that would be against the tenets of democracy.
But, all said and done, freedom is often a misconstrued term. We tend to consider freedom to be a license to say or do anything we like. But is it so? It is an established principle that absolute freedom will only lead to anarchy. If everyone of us feel free to say what we like and to do what we feel like, there would be utter chaos.
We all know that my freedom ends at the tip of your nose. So, we have limits and are required to follow and accept the same so that the society remains intact. We have become more opinionated with the advent of the social media and there is nothing actually wrong in having independent views or suggestions but does that give one the freedom to intrude into a territory that is not in your domain? You can express your views or opinion only to the extent to which it does not call for any social, legal or administrative interference.
My point is that, let us not misinterpret freedom; let us know and realize our limits and most of all the spread and sphere of the platform we are using or the audience we are addressing. Members are requested not to restrict their thoughts in this regard to ISC alone but to widen their view point and have a fair and free discussion on the subject.
