“Where the mind is without fear” Tagore

“Where the mind is without fear” Tagore

I fondly remember the poem we sang in school everyday. It is from Gitanjali written by Rabindranath Tagore.

 

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;

Where knowledge is free;

Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;

Where words come out from the depth of truth;

Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;

Where the mind is led forward by Thee to ever-widening thought and action –

Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.
