Heaven Of Freedom
August 15, 2021
On the occasion of India’s 75th year of Independence, I could not think of a better message than this masterpiece from Guru Rabindranath Tagore’s “Geetanjali”- offering of songs- composed and published 120 years ago. This poem expresses Rabindranath Tagore’s longing for India’s freedom.
But when I read the poem today, it feels like a call to action for all of us to free ourselves from insular, limiting beliefs where we experience freedom, dignity, progress, and peace within our own minds.
You can also listen to a beautiful recitation of this poem here- Where The Mind Is Without Fear .
Here’s wishing my motherland a happy 75th Independence Day.
