"Where the Mind is Without Fear"

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out fro 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


(A poem for all seasons, for each of us - in unity & diversity. Especially today our 70th Independence Day.)

Lovely poem, except for the 'my Father', which sounds Western.. should have been my Mother.. since we say Bharat Mata.

But this is not a plead to Mother India... but more like a prayer to god... or maybe even to the father of the nation, Mahatma.

Re: Happy Independence Day 2017

^^ Prol'y was it addressed to " Jagat-Pita "?

Tagore had written many poems and stuff - free styled,.. ( not related to any particular thing/person ) and later some1 tried to forcefully fit it somewhere,… For example,..our Rashtra-gaan jag gan man was written by him to some other lord colonel / King 2nd(?),. And later it was trimmed for the National Anthem,…

Btw,.. no1 remembered today Majaal’s Poem on Independence day,..

I'm going by Tagore's track record, he was quite the Brit appeaser. Even Jan Gan Man is addressed to Queen as Bharat Bhagya Vidhata.

In that case, if he had said Mother in the poem then the conspiracy theorists would have said he is talking about the Queen and not Mother India. So it would have been a lose-lose situation for the guru.

Re: Happy Independence Day 2017

Was it not written for British King George V ?
http://www.dailyo.in/politics/markan...ry/1/3270.html

Jusr remember,.. Tagore was an algaari, mast fakir, sadhu-maula-jeev, guy in the lap of nature and was writing in relate to dharti, nadi, dariya, raina, aasmaan, almighty-force, mausam, mother-land, bhagya-vidhata,..... and also tieing in somewhere to rulers ! was somewhere copying Shakespeare or Socrates styles... Dunn'o what made him also to lick da freaking white arses !

WE da lazy ppl, even dunno what we are singing,.. perhaps we never care,.. ! In today's rastra-gaan,.. it has words like,...
Punjab, sindh, Banga,... they all separated and now in west and east Pakistan,... but we never care,.... we still have Muslim city names and road names of julmi rulers,.. !

While today is the increasing fashion n' mania of doing gaali and demean and defame all,.... so well famous persons like Gandhi, Nehru, Teresa, Ambedkar, also recently Teresa was cursed all over,...on social medias,...

I won't wonder if ppl also takes him on next turn,... for few sootiya-giri of speaking high of Lords, Colonels and Battens,...

I saw few videos of him ( Tagore ) live on YT,...... and he seems not that impressive ( what he seems, for those who have not seen/met him ) but a fata-purana, begger-bhikhari,... so my guess is,... his turn will come next, as an another sootiya,.... I hope, I be proven wrong.

ppl have already demeant Boze many a times,.... for inviting japanese army and get killed our own indo ppl in thousands who were working under British and,....... laffanghe-giri in Germany marrying Emilia when on freedom movement,...and such,...

Ambedkar is abused well-enough on social medias,....with tons of valid points and so with Mother Teresa,......

I won't wonder if Tagore be next in the raw after Nehru and Gandhi,..

Re: Happy Independence Day 2017

After some years enjoyed Independence Day in a drizzle. It has a special feeling. Accompanied kids to school, stood in the rain, sang national anthem, saluted the flag and then went out for breakfast with family. Garma Garam Nashta Puri bhaji followed by Kadak chai. Great enjoyable day!

Re: Happy Independence Day 2017

We had independence day flag hoisting near my workplace. A representative of Governor of state attended and read out his message. Organizers had sweets for all the people who showed up.

I told this to a desi colleague lady (who got US citizenship recently) .. she says "I don't understand why Indians come to US and still show patriotism, if they are really patriotic why they come to US in the first place." I didn't have ANYTHING good to say so I didn't thinking it will become unprofessional if I make the comments I wanted to.

Was it "Did you study in JNU?"
