Speech by Salman Rushdie

A wonderful meditation on artistic freedom and tolerance (and intolerance) in India. Observations on the M. F. Hussain’s situation. Overall, an enlightening and thought-provoking speech, from the India Today Conclave. Scroll down past the introduction to read Rushdie’s speech.

    It’s a pity that the likes of Rushdie/Husain et al. have settled abroad. It’s obvious that the country produces some intellectually radical mindsets – it is precisely such mindsets that challenge the status quo and enable progress.

    I bet they can contribute more to the country and ultimately their biggest market base.
