• Gitanjali and mind without fear
  • Back
 by 

A friend mentioned last night that his grandfather had given him Rabindranath Tagore’s poetry book – Gitanjali, but he had not read it yet.
We read Mind without Fear which seems very appropriate:
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.
