INTO THAT HEAVEN OF FREEDOM...Greetings on Independence 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, Gitanjali
