My Father, let my country awake..

20 December, 2010

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 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

- A Poem by Rabiindranath Tagore

This is the poem that I love most. MahagamaSekara has translated this to the Sinhala version as "Patu adahas nam pawren..." , popular song by Amaradeva....
Listen to Sinhala version of song....
