Blog Ban?!

I heard from one of my friends about the Indian government issuing orders to block links to blogs including ones hosted on Blogger! Was appalled by the step. Almost seemed like we are in the prehistoric world! What do we have here? Where did our freedom of speech vanish? When we can say what we feel like via other mediums like TV, Radio, Print et al, what's so intimidating about blogs? Is it that they have a much wider reach? Or is it simply that blogs are easier to block!? How can politicians who have been voted to power by the people stop those very people from even expressing themselves? If this is a case of certain miscreants up to no good, then why doesn't the government just 'take care' of them? Hmm! Lots of questions, many a stirred emotion, no clear answers.....

If you know better and know what's the latest, please leave your thoughts here....

Yeah, it was an utterly vain move of the government to do that! A clear example of how they misuse power..
