“Even when a country is not free, its writers are free.” It is, therefore, important for a writer to “speak the truth and keep the conscience. …
“The rulers of the country are not worth the literature the country is producing … literature stands for “freedom of the mind in the past, present and the future”.
When the political atmosphere in a country does not allow for unbridled free speech, metaphors have always served as the “hiding place” for writers. Many have managed to speak between lines through metaphors during the reign of the most draconian rulers.”
