If you shut
your door to all errors
truth will be shut out.
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 toward perfection.
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost it’s way
into the dreary desert sand of dead habit.
Where the mind is led forward by thee
into ever widening thought and action.
In to that heaven of freedom, my father,
LET MY COUNTRY AWAKE!
– Rabindranath Tagore Jayanti, 159th birth anniversary,
Let me not pray to be
sheltered from dangers,
but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for
the stilling of my pain,
but for the heart to conquer it.
~~~ Rabindranath Tagore
If you cry because
the sun has gone out of your life,
your tears will prevent you
from seeing the stars.
in a vessel is sparkling;
in the sea is dark.
The small truth has words which are clear;
the great truth has great silence.
“You smiled and talked to me of nothing and I felt that for this I had been waiting long.”
― Rabindranath Tagore
लोगों की भीङ में किसी
एक पर निगाहें टिक जायें।
पहली मुलाकात में लगे
पहले मिले हैं ।
घंटों बात करके भी लगे,
अभी बातें अौर भी है।
क्या वे लोग सुंदर होते हैं?
या उनका मन सुंदर होता है………..
