Noted author Noam Chomsky and journalist Vijay Prasad regretted the “sudden cancellation” of their online discussion at the Tata Literature Live Festival and wanted to know if the move was a result of censorship. Actually Chomsky’s new book “Internationalism or Extensions” was to be discussed at 9 pm on Friday night, but at 1 pm, Chomsky and Prasad were sent an email saying that the event would no longer be held.
Prasad tweeted, “Noam and I were going to discuss Noam’s new book at the Tata Literature Festival. A few hours before the event, our panel was abruptly canceled. Both of them issued a statement saying that they were given information about the cancellation of the program by email.
He said in a joint statement, “Then suddenly at one o’clock in the Indian time we got an email saying” I am sorry to inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances we have to cancel your discussion today. ” ‘
