Ever since the present government and its affiliates from the Sangh Parivar were sworn to power, they seem hellbent on creating a communally charged atmosphere in the country.

Most of us felt that the Akademi should have come out more openly to protect the intellectual freedom and protest against the ongoing attempts to muzzle public opinion.

As Bongs constantly moan and groan each time they encounter a problem. The rest of us use a much ruder expression that begins with an 'F', and ends with a 'K'.

My immediate concern is to help Bhansali deal with those who want to stall his magnum opus, titled Padmavati. Boss...why not change the title? Tweak it? You have done that before with Ram-Leela... do it again!

It’s high time that writers take a stand

We have an eloquent Prime Minister, who addresses lakhs of people, but here writers are being murdered, innocent people are being murdered, his Ministers make controversial statements...Still he is quiet. Why doesn’t he shut them up?

Unlike other states in the country, in Kerala, traditions, classicism, orthodoxy, innovation and boldness co-exist. The state hosts a large number of international events. So it’s very important that Kerala keeps on the tradition at a time when voices of dissent are being suppressed in the country

Poetry in times of devaluation and totalisation of language tries to keep language alive in its human intensity, moral vigour and emotional strength.

Poetry is a noble trinity of courage, creativity and conscience. Whether it’s heard or not, it should raise its voice

Ashok Vajpeyi

Unlike religious leaders, politicians, spiritual gurus, ideologues and mediapersons et.al, poets do not doubt themselves.

Poetry is written more often out of doubt rather than certainty

Ashok Vajpeyi

There are many things which seem to be more important in ordinary life than poetry, an art of spontaneity, passion, vision, but difficult grace.

Poetry enters heaven with mud-soaked shoes.

The Sahitya Akademi should actively, dynamically and imaginatively work towards making space for dissemination and better accessibility of literature in our time and society.

Ashok Vajpeyi

The Sahitya Akademi was supposed to stand by writers, to protest, strongly and publicly, against the murder of writers. Instead, it took the role of a shameless sycophant of the government, and belatedly met and passed a resolution.
