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 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 (Gitanjali)

Happy Independence Day !!!

P.S: Just listen to the Waka Waka Parody about India. It's in Telugu.
