It has been decided, we will be publishing only
pensioner related issues on the main
page of the blog. So our pensioners will be happy,
their demand in this matter has been met.
But we are human beings. There may be interesting incidents taking place in the country in which some of us may be interested to update our information. We will be adding such content on our rear page with clear warning POLITICS and those who are interested (Warning: ONLY THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED) in the contents may click open such pages and read!
You will remember, we happened to publish what may be called a cartoon about which there was a brief discussion. Shri Baswaraj felt, we need not discuss such issues in our blog. He also said, we retirees respected all parties, all religions and all regions of the country. To the Chronicle, his voice sounded very mature and persuasive, We really heard Shri SN's voice thru Shri Baswaraj. And following that we had immediately published an editorial.
Even in the Editorial, let us admit now, the main fear of the Editor was not brought to fore. The fear was that if Kanhaiya Kumar, a young student leader in JNU, could be booked for sedition without even examining evidence against him, one day this Editor could also be booked for sedition for a cartoon published as was done in the case of Shri Asim Trivedi, Cartoonist, or Tamilnadu folk artist Kovan. That's the level of tolerance we see in the country at present. Some of these fears could be without any sound reason, real basis or foundation. But do you look around? You won't find anybody assuring us, assuaging the hurt feelings of an ordinary Indian citizen. That is the crux of the issue.
Well, we do not wish to dwell at length on the subject. Suffice it say, hereafter political content may be included in our menu. But here is our assurance, the same will not appear on the main page of the blog. There will be a warning "POLITICS" and those who wish to read the contents, may opt to do so and click to open politics page.
