Where the mind is without fear

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 wars;
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. ”

Beauty of words doesn’t lie on how it is written, but what it reads.These versus when stumbled to my ears, in a long long past of my school days, it didnt meant to me nothing more than a chanting that has to be etched to heart. When I saw it again, I realized the essence of freedom and oneness filled in these verbal quotes by one of the greatest poets of modern India – RabindranathTagore.

“where tireless striving stretches its arms to perfection”. How opt it is to hold high the spirit of hard work fruiting to perfection. And the thought that reason doesnt come from dead habits, but from a creative mind. The interpretations to these lines may vary based on the personal outlook, but I guarantee that it will make an impact for sure. .
