Mind Is Without Fear: Tagore

There are few poems you learn by heart they stay with you forever and you want to recite at once at any given opportunity.

Rabindranath Tagore‘s (one of the greatest literary and polymath of all time) poem ‘Where the mind is without fear is one such poem which left a deep impact on my mind and soul. The poem is a prayer to God composed by the Nobel prize winner Tagore during the time when India was under the colonial Rule and people were eagerly waiting to get their independence.

This poem gives a lot of strength to the readers. It is a prayer to the God for a peaceful country free from any kind of unrest or corrupted powers. This is one of the most recited poem in all recitation competitions I attended in the schools, therefore it is close to my heart as a teacher.

Tagore was a prolific writer, play writer, painter, actor, novelist. Known mostly for his poems, he composed 2,230 songs, known as ‘Tagore songs'( Rabindra Sangeet),ร‚ย widely popular and express wide range of human emotions. It would not be incorrect to equate these as rivals to Shakespeare’s impact on the English-speaking world.

Enjoy this famous creation ๐Ÿ™‚

SLOW DOWN; YOU GOT ONE LIFE

Have you ever thought about Why slowing down is so important in life? Life is not only to run and chase the deadlines and create a million-dollar fortune. Slowing down is an art, indeed a therapy to become more mindful of your blessings of life. It means to be more present at the moment. To eliminate the stress of our lives and enjoy the simple joys that we otherwise tend to miss out on. It is a soul awakening to feel eternal happiness. This verse highlights the need of slowing down in life before it is too late.
