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,

Bengali Poet
