but the teacher and citizen Perumal Murugan of Tiruchengode Tamil Nadu was still alive He announced his death himself The cause of death was his novel Madhorubhagan (2010) translated from Tamil to English as One Part Woman (2014) by Aniruddhan Vasudevan A young woman in this fiction is desperate to have a child She decides as a last resort to take part in a temple festival where for one night consensual sex is permissible between any man and woman The temple is dedicated to the one-part-woman god Ardhanareeswara Actually this fiction was only an excuse The cause of the writer’s death was intimidation a form of censorship increasingly practised in India by individuals and groups The real cause was the ideological agenda behind the intimidation Share This Article Related Article Watch Video: What’s making news Four years after Murugan’s novel was published caste-based groups slow readers all claimed the book “hurt” their religious sentiments and “defamed” women the region and the community The BJP-RSS on the lookout for allies pulled out its familiar script: Mob censorship can divide people; division can court vote banks (It also destroys free speech and cultural well-being but that can be passed off as nationalism) Used to conflating history and fiction the self-appointed censors put on their police uniforms Instead of ignoring the thought police as aberrant haters of idea imagination and word the real police took them seriously The writer was summoned for “peace talks” He was hounded into signing an apology and “withdrawing” his novel He then took to Facebook to announce his death as a writer Between last January and this July the writer floated dead and alive in a menacing purgatory In October 2015 he got an award from the Samanvay Bhasha Samman His “shadow” the publisher came to Delhi to receive the award But there was a statement from the writer’s “ghost” With heartbreaking logic the ghost said “The Samanvay Award for Madhorubhagan is a modern recognition given to Tamil a classical language with a long and unbroken literary tradition This recognition bestowed on my language at an unfortunate moment will I hope be a shining gem rather than an unsightly wart” In July 2016 the writer was resurrected The Madras High Court told him he could come back to life think and imagine again pick up his pen Murugan the writer has accepted this offer of a second life: “It comforts a heart that had shrunk and wilted I am trying to prop myself up holding onto the light of the last lines of the judgment: ‘Let the author be resurrected to do what he is best at Write’ I will get up” Madhorubhagan has been described by Tamil critics as an imaginative effort to map the lore and ethos of the place Murugan comes from; to people it with characters who long for a reliable livelihood marriage children and acceptance by the community But the point is not whether the novel is award-winning or even good The point is not whether a temple festival sanctioned a permissive night or whether women wanting to conceive took advantage of this night The real point is that the BJP-RSS and its casteist allies unmake India by depriving Indians of their rights not only to write but to read what they will They insult their intelligence when they look to authority — whether the state its “cultural” cohorts the court Batra-clones Nihalani-doubles or caste- and community-obsessed groups — to decide what we will read write paint sing see or how we will live in our homes classrooms and streets The Madras High Court has bravely begun its judgement with Voltaire: “I may not agree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it” The court has performed its new job of bringing writers back to life and it has done it reasonably well Quite rightly there is gratitude and jubilation among readers writers and citizens partial to reason and imagination But the judgement also forces us to confront the times we live in; what is happening to our home with its myriad riches Literature art or a scientific breakthrough by an Indian Galileo may challenge communities to look at the world afresh Do we now look to the court to tell us what is worthy in art or science Do we need the court or anyone else to allow us to tell stories These questions lead to an embarrassingly obvious point But the obvious needs to be spelt out today not just by the court or the eminent but by the Indian people every single one of them We need from childhood to tell stories about ourselves and others This need to imagine and recount is so powerful that it is inextinguishable No law no hurt sentiment no official or unofficial censor can destroy this yearning for different kinds of truth We know this from history and literature and our essential knowledge of ourselves History is replete with examples of resistance to the suppression of the imaginative idea good bad or indifferent We are besieged today by the BJP-RSS and its cynical gang who silence writers; prevent plays from being performed films from being seen; art from pursuing what it must Voices are muffled or silenced whether they belong to women the youth or certain castes and communities These voices need a second life like Perumal Murugan But no government or court no follower of identity politics is going to help We have to resurrect the India we want to make with our own mass politics We have to get this second life ourselves Hariharan is a founder member of the Indian Writers’ Forum For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWith questions being raised over the security lapses that led to the killing of a 7-year-old boy inGurugram’s Ryan International School on Friday Haryana Policeis sending a team to question the CEO of Ryan International Group Ryan Pinto in Mumbai TV reports said CNN-News18quoted Gurugram Police commissioner and reported that a total of 14 teams have been put together to crack this caseand the teams will head to Mumbai to quiz the top brass of the organisation Owners of Ryan International School in Gurugram have moved the Bombay High Court for anticipatory bail ahead of Pinto’s questioning News18 reported "The school’s founding chairman and managing director Augustine Pinto and his wife Grace Pinto who is the chairperson of the school have along with their son Ryan Pinto sought anticipatory bail in the Bombay High Court" their counsel Niteen Pradhan toldPTI Pradhan mentioned the applicationson Mondaymorning before Justice Ajey Gadkari who posted them for hearingon Tuesday Gurugram Commissioner and DCP have visited Ryan International School Meanwhile Bihar chief minister and JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar talked to the victim’s family over the phone and called Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar who assured his Bihar counterpart that an impartial and fast probe was being conducted We had been interrogating Acting Principal since day before yesterday & she is in hospital now Investigation underway: DCP South #Gurugram pictwittercom/1UJ10Kmvkz — ANI (@ANI) September 11 2017 On Sunday Pinto said the school should not be held "culpable of a crime where it is itself a victim of unfortunate circumstances"Insisting that the well being and safety of students is the school’s priority Pinto had said "We will not succumb to all the false allegations being made nor will we fuel the various controversies being spread We should not unjustly be blamed or branded as the perpetrators" The Supreme Court has decided to hear a public interest litigation in this matter at 1245 pm on Monday CNN-News 18reported "They forced me to admit that the knife was part of the bus tool kit" This comes right after the arrest of a bus conductor has come under scrutinyafter another staffer alleged that the accused and he were being forced to confess to a narrative A bus driver who worked with the accused claimed thathe was being forced by the police and school officials to admit that the knife used in the crime was part of the bus tool kit? all files by evening the day it is put to him.I find a reference to I.
