Where the Mind is full of fear -poolabala

Where the mind is full of fear

Where the mind is full of fear 
and the head is held low 
Where the knowledge is unimportant 
and world is stolen by internet  
Where people survive as groups 
in social media where words come out 
from preposterous chat by impostors
where ceaseless prowling stretches its arms
towards abduction where thinking 
is permanently damaged  
Where logic ceases and thinking dies
where education has no meaning
where personality succumbs to hero worship
where caste thrives and  corruption flourishes
where religion rules the senses 
where  tradition serves the purpose of exploitation 
where the mind is led forward by politics 
into ever shrinking thought and faction,
 into the nation of half alive zombies
 my father,  my country has awoken.    - poolabala

                                                                                      

Where the mind is without fear - -Rabindranath Tagore
  
Where the mind is without fear and 
the head is held high 
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.
