Every resistance puts forward a challenge to the existing order. And arts are no exception to this challenge. It eventually becomes the duty of every progressive resistance to mould art in its own image so as to produce works that will in turn shape the future; works that invigorate the people to cast away the chains of slavery, works that embolden ordinary people to resist invading armies, works that thrash the deities of ignorance, works that topple the thrones of tyranny, works that question the diktats of bygone eras, works that unfurl the banners of liberation.
