Your Voice Matters
At FreeVoice, we believe in the power of words to strengthen voices, expose lies, and challenge the status quo. Explore a wide range of stories that present an alternative reality to our literature, culture and society.
"In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
- George Orwell
"Washing one's hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless means to side with the powerful, not to be neutral.
- Paulo Freire
It is not about the noise. It is about the distinct voice, a voice that defies the status quo, a voice that can speak truth to power and unmask the lies, a voice that can dispel darkness and usher in light.
I write because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, said George Orwell. As a writer, I never kowtow to the whims and dictates of the sacred godmen or godwomen, the political bigots and hypocrites, dealers of laymen, the dishonest and self-serving intellectuals, traders of religions, the betrayers of ‘other’ Indians who eke out a living by their sweat, who are living in fear for being lynched for this and that.
