Today, I stumbled upon a masterpiece on BURNING BOOKS by Mr. John Hutnyk London, Valeyeti. Below is the link:

The blog is about burning books in France. It provided a thoughtful reading for me, though I am not aware of what has actually happened with regard to the burning of the library at Villiers Le Bel, Paris, France.

Here at home (India), we have the instance of burning the Bhandarkar Library, at Pune,India, by some.

I also wish that Mr. John Hutnyk will write about threatening of authors or thrashing them up, as has recently happened to Ms. Taslima Nasreen, the Bangla Desh writer.

Anyway, my greatest appreciation to Mr. Huthyk.
