We have adopted the first line of this inspiring poem as the motto of Liberty Institute. 
 We will be providing links to some other poems of 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
-- Rabindranath Tagore
