Happy Republic Day!




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 into ever-widening thought and action---
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

RABINDRANATH TAGORE

HAPPY REPUBLIC DAY with a prayer that the above said turns out to be true very soon!

  2. I was wondering why this lyrics seemed familiar. Now I remember, we used to sing this in our school, everyday. It is so liberating, isn't it? Such is the greatness of the great man, Tagore. Thanks for sharing this for I would've forgotten it for all eternity.
