Rabindranath Tagore (8.V.1861 – 7.VIII.1941)

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
depth of truth;
Where tireless striving
stretches its arms towards
Where the clear stream of
reason has not lost its way into
the dreary desert sand of dead
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.
