Sahitya academy protest

Gopal Das Neeraj, one of India’s renowned poet disagrees with writers returning their awards. He says this is no way to protest. By returning their awards, he feels writers and poets are unnecessarily politicising the whole issue and this is not good for literature. Perhaps there is an element of truth in what Gopal Das Neeraj has hinted. Writers should avoid such controversies, they should not get involved in politics. A writer has the power to express himself through his creativity, he should be a guiding force for the society. His pen should act as a tool to voice the emotions of the society.
