BHUBANESWAR: Amid the raging controversy over the release of Hindi feature film Padmavat, celebrated author Ruskin Bond on Friday said freedom of expression should not be absolute.
"I do not think freedom of speech should be absolute.
"Creative inspiration is something which cannot be described in words.
Acclaimed writer Kiran Nagarkar joined writer Prayaag Akbar in exploring their visions of dystopias and how they have captured them in their works.
