Sorry Mr. Tagore I have taken some liberty with your poem….

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

Mumbai and perhaps whole of Maharashtra will be closed on Sun and Monday because one Ex head of a local political party died.

Where knowledge is free

Knowledge is free, degrees are priced at 5L for a Bcom and Rs. 200L for a PG in medicine. Knowledge is absent. But yes Sir we have created some world class institutions which people from all over the world want to join.

Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls

Even the British could not have done such a great division that we have done.

Where words come out from the depth of truth

Sir 10 years ago we had market for 4 hours and Television for 1 hour covering the markets. Now we have markets for 6 hours and television for 24 x 5 channels in English covering the markets. We have a fantastic din with NO connection to the 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

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my investors awake
– Rabindranath Tagore

  1. If you are staying in Mumbai then well….of course you will be arrested and as per current rankings by The Economist or by T.H.E. we don’t have any single world class institute.

  2. //Even the British could not have done such a great division that we have done// — Excellent. I dont think even god himself cannot solve these social problems though he seem to have created at first.
