i remembered reading this in school when i was a kid. I think it is very important to today's situation
I personally feel that this poem is what we here at ATS are striving for.
This poem is from Gitanjali, (lit. Offering of Songs), published in English in
I was surprised not to find it on the forums so i thought i should share it with you guys.


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 awake.
-Rabindranath Tagore
