Poems of Conciousness (Reflections of Our Responsibilities for Our Country)

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 the words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms toward 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.
By Rabindranath Tagore,Bengali poet and political activist, Nobel Prize winner 1913
