WHERE THE MIND IS WITHOUT FEAR
By Rabindranath TagoreEmmanuel Amberber
Here is a poem I love, Tagore's dream of India's freedom captured in his idealistic poem.
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.
Tagore said, "Where knowledge is free"... I don't know what he would have said if he was alive today. Internet is where knowledge is free.
He prayed to God that, knowledge should be free for all and there should be an atmosphere of fearlessness. His prayers are being answered through the internet and mobile. Knowledge is being freed every day, and more & more people are joining the digital revolution.
