Where The Mind Is Without Fear - Poem by surya raman

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 had compiled an anthology of poems called Gitanjali. Little did he know that his poems would go on to inspire us even after a century. “Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high” - is one such gem.. (Report) Reply
