Right to speak- Value it!!

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Wishing everyone a very Happy Republic Day. Thanks for visiting blogtrain of 13 wonderful bloggers who take up their passion with trust, love, and responsibility and so we call ourself squad of #Right2Write. 

I feel blessed that I’m an Indian, proud citizen of a country where we have right of expression, right to vote, right to speak, but I really feel do we really treasure it, value it??

Every right comes with a responsibility, which we should understand. Freedom of expression and speaking I feel is the biggest responsibility Indian Constitution have given us.

So, yes we all are taking up this responsibility very seriously.  Social media is the biggest example of this constitutional right where every day we are coming up with something or other, speaking out and sharing our views.

How is Social Media taking up right to speak?

Twitter is the biggest example of this freedom of expression. People with fewer words express more. Recently last weekend Big Boss 11 finale happened and if you pick up trending hashtags it would be for either Shilpa Shinde or Hina Khan.

Indian audience made sure to support their fav celebrity taking up their right to speak on Twitter and supported them. Where Shilpa Shinde‘s fan left no stone pulling down TV actress Hina Khan‘s, same way Hina’s fan also taken up this fundamental right in hand and spoken what all they can speak against Shilpa.

Not only fans but also TV celebrities like Vindu Dara Singh’s, Ravi Dubey or Karan Patel’s tweet showed and influenced people. Legendary Actor Rishi Kapoor always in news with his freedom of expression on Twitter.

It’s not bad to express and putting up your viewpoint but sometime it could harm someone personally, professionally or mentally.

Indian cinema’s biggest movie was all set to release Sanjay Leela Bansali’s, now “PADMAVAT” starring fine actors like Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh, but as every individual has right to express and speak some people on the name of religion made sure that it should not get released.

I don’t say they are wrong and have no right to express but without watching any movie how can we assume and speak something which we are also not sure about. Time will only tell how much this protest was correct.

Responsibility comes with the right to speak:right to speak

I firmly believe that if people are hearing me, following me so it must be because somewhere they trust on my words and my thinking.

Every other person influence someone in some or other way, so there are few points we should keep in mind before speaking:

My mom always says “Kaman se Nikla Hua Teer Zuban se Niklay Huey Shabd Kabhi Wapas nahi Aate” , so think before you speak.

  1. Never pass any judgment without knowing the facts.
  2. If you are a celebrity, news person, blogger, writer, poet choose your words properly it could affect someone.
  3. Make sure your any speech should not harm the dignity of our beautiful country.
  4. Your any statement should not affect peace in home, society and in the country.
  5. Be polite and understand the value of your right, right to speak.

So, from now make sure when you speak, it should spread happiness and bring smile 🙂
