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
Into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the
depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches
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
into ever widening thought and action;
Into that heaven of freedom,
let my country awake
-- Rabindranath Tagore
