A victory for Internet freedom

The beauty of the Internet is that it is a truly open and democratic platform that does not discriminate – it does not care whether you are impoverished or a social outcaste and gives your voice equal weightage.

This generation should contribute in solving problems and that way problems will be solved and not replaced.
