Good evening, everyone. The name is Shruti. I come from Bangalore but I am from Pune although I am a native of Kerela. (pause for laughs). Art. That’s my topic for today, I am sure nobody here can say that they don’t love any kind of art form. Everyone of us is passionate about something. Some love music, others love paintings and some others love writings. I myself love dance.
You know what’s the beauty of art. Freedom. Freedom to express oneself in any way possible. This freedom is what makes artists become what you call ‘creative’ when in truth they are just being themselves. Creativity comes when the artist knows that he has the time and the freedom to express whatever he wants to. If either of these aspects are affected, the creativity comes down which in turn affects originality or rather uniqueness.
Ideally, art should never be controlled or monitored. However, unfortunately, we live in a society where art forms are censored due to conservative beliefs and perceived insults. It is the failure and ultimate doom of a society which curbs the freedom of its art forms. It has been proved by the history of past societies .
