For India, on World Poetry Day

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
