Fury 2

There are people who protest violently. And there are ones who do the same in a sophisticated manner. The quality might not be the best, but people do take up various methods to protest.

Ambikesh Mahapatra, a professor of chemistry at Jadavpur University, was one such person. When Mukul Roy was given a cabinet, he created a cartoon in protest, involving Shonar Kella. It wasn't a great cartoon (though a decent one). We all had a laugh, shared it on Facebook, and that was that. We moved on to Bob Biswas and Hatkata Kartik.

And then, this happened.

As I write this, I can feel my blood boiling, after a significantly long time. This is sheer violation of basic rights.

I hate to admit this, but I feel ashamed of being a Bengali and a Kolkatan right now.

It's not about the quality of the creation. It's about creativity being hurt at its core. If you have a single iota of creativity somewhere inside you, do not digest this. Do unite. Do resist.

Please.
