Can Post but Can't Read

I am in Beijing now and getting the first hand experience of Chinese censorship. I cannot get to many of the sites I frequent from elsewhere like blogs, bbcnews, gmail, Google News etc.,

Notice all the Problem Loading Page yellow tabs ? Too many sites I generally visit are blocked..

I am remained of the 'Urvasi.. Urvasi' song from Kadhalan. The last sentence somewhat goes like this.. 'I don't want even heaven if there is no freedom'.. I guess it boils down to 'where does one draw the line ?". As Sujatha says, there will never be unbridled freedom to express our opinion in any society. If that's the case.. When do we say "This is Good Enough".

I am going to hit the publish button and hopefully this will go through.. I will know when I head out this weekend and access web.
