Expressions v Oppression

Recently, the arrests of some unsuspecting citizens

For their alleged ‘offensive comments’ in twitter and facebook,

In the biggest democracy of the world,

Triggered a debate on ‘freedom’ of ‘expression’.

The society and system, both are struggling

To adapt and evolve,

To the tune and tenor of technology,

Which is set to redefine,

The mode, medium and language of communication.

If authorities are required to take a more liberal legal interpretation

In their assertions,

The champions of freedom of speech

Also need moderation.

Coordinates wishes readers the best for year 2013
