Where the Mind is Without Fear 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 into ever-widening

thought and action-

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

-Rabindranath Tagore

Happy Independence Day! Jai Hind!
