Where the mind is fearful and the head sometimes stoops low,

Where little knowledge is dangerous,

Where the world is breaking up into fragments,

By limited narrow thoughts,

Where noise and falsehood rule the roost,

Where people strive to fill their own pockets only,

Where reason and logic are looked down by all,

And only “my way or highway” stands tall,

Where the mind is asked to think less and only obey,

From that hollow of darkness, O Lord, let my country become free!


Abhishek Goswami

 P.S. The poem is inspired by “Where the mind is without fear” by Rabindranath
