Happy 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 lead forward by thee
into ever-widening thought and action-
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father,
let my country awake."
"GEETANJALI"
-Rabindranath Tagore

May the spirit of independence grow stronger each day. India has more freedom than any country in the world. Once we stop abusing the freedom and start respecting it, we will see things change for good. Take care -ari

Cheers!
