This space is also used to circulate the urgent message from any PEN center over this world. I believe in FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION and I use this space for this purpose. I am a stark activist of International PEN and I follow it. All the news and articles are posted by Albert Ashok, and maintained by his pocket money, Your co-operation is welcome
