Where the mind is without fear

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where women live in peace and dignity
Where all citizens male and female are free
to pursue their dreams equally in liberty
Where equality is a given and not a distant dream for some
Where all people can express their inner truth without hesitation or repression
Where the spirit soars in joy into expansion and accomplishment and rewards
Where the fruits of progress are available to all citizens.
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

(My take on the great masters poem on this day)

Original poem by Rabindranath Tagore

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.
