The Heaven of Freedom Poem - Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore (born May 7, 1861, Kolkata, India - died August 7, 1941, Kolkata), Bengali poet, short-story writer, song composer, playwright, essayist, and painter who introduced new prose and verse forms and the use of colloquial language into Bengali literature, thereby freeing it from traditional models based on classical Sanskrit. 

He was highly influential in introducing Indian culture to the West and vice versa, and he is generally regarded as the outstanding creative artist of early 20th-century India. In 1913 he became the first non-European to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Heaven of Freedom: Rabindranath Tagore

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 led forward by Thee 

Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country

- Rabindranath Tagore
