I understand the phrase "freedom of speech" has a different meaning in India when compared to the United States.
In the US, Eminem can write a rap bashing their president, use obscene and objectionable words in a jam, and yet get away with it, but here in our country, I think we have limitations - I'm not at all an advocate and hence wanted to seek some expert opinion here.
I am planning to launch a website entirely devoted to bashing the people I hate. The contents of the website would be my personal opinion, and not necessarily substantiated by any evidence supporting the claim.
The claims made wouldn't even necessarily true.
Some claims would be completely absurd, like "Mr.X is a love child of a crocodile and a dung beetle".
I just want to create a website to vent out my anger towards these people, and have some juvenile fun.
I want to know if the people I'll be writing about can sue me and drag me to the court when they come across my webpage.
In other words, what am I allowed to write, and what is prohibited?
Thanks for your advice :)

freedom of speech is the same in both countries as in paper, but your freedom ends when you hurt someone else in personal capacity.

in regards to politicians they have availed themselves to criticism on their own account.
