251975India came under a period of internal emergency declared by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi 21 months during which fundamental rightsincluding freedom of expressionwere suspended Press censorship was officially declared While many newspapers accepted the governmental injunction of voluntary censorshipnewspapers like The Statesman and The Indian Express defied the draconian measures What should concern us today is not the imposition of restraints on expression and the resistance to itbut the impact it has left on the artistic and literary scene in India How did artists and writers respond to the states interference in artistic freedom Was the governments tendency to suppress free speech a temporary phase that went away with the Emergency Are artists and writers today freer The Emergency was a period that writers and artists tended to avoid during or after its time Its impact was felt in films (like Satyajit Rays Hirak Rajer Deshe or Shaji N Karuns Piravi) and scattered works of literaturemainly poems But this did not breed a literature of trauma like the Partition didand we find few examples of literary works that were banned or suppressed Barring a few novelsthe Emergency failed to anguish the novelist into expressionespecially in the Indian languages The novels that immediately spring to mind are all in English Salman Rushdies Midnights

Emergency in her presidential address at the Marathi Sahitya Sammelan in 1975or singer Kishore Kumarwhose songs were banned on All India Radio for having refused to sing at a Youth Congress rally The Kannada actor Snehalata Reddy died because of the ill treatment she faced in prison Stillthe Emergency was a temporary measure that the country soon moved on from Howevergovernmental intolerance for free speech and writers tendency to retreat into a protective shell in the face of injustice seem to persist Self-censorship is exercised by writers todaypersuading them to produce safe literature that does not provoke or offend Rushdie and Taslima Nasreen are reminders of what it means to speak or write without fear or favour This age of caution cannot hope to produce another Premchand or Saadat Hasan Manto What is worse than this self-censorship is the popular perception that literature should not offend or provokerendering any authoritarian restriction on free expression unnecessary The public has internalised the notion that the printed word should be clean and polite Intolerance flows freely through public life This has empowered mobs to demand the suppression of the written word based on their whims and fancies The Emergency should have sensitised us to the perils of curbing free thought and expression Insteadour writers appear to have voluntarily declared a state of

Girlfriend Official Trailer Asked on his take on having half girlfriends or half boyfriends the “2 States” actor clarified the notion of the film is not frivolous “I would like to clarify that the concept is not to have many half girlfriends or many half boyfriends… It’s not something that’s frivolous I would like to tell the youth of today that its not like you can go and ask a girl ‘be my half girlfriend’ The film is not intended to be that and the trailer doesn’t signify that” the 31-year-old actor said “She (Shraddha Kapoor’s character) is not asking me out ‘be my half boyfriend’
