Where Sanjay Dutt's furlough is ridiculing the judiciary system and Media is busy showing actor's eight-pack abs; where devils are driving Uber cabs; Our own Assam is burning and little girl Spandan chaturvedi is working hard to portray as chakor and not even Satyarthi is recognizing this form of child labor; Where Parliament is busy discussing religions and religious places are catalyzing politics; Where divinity is perceived in god-man Rampal; Gurudev's (R. Tagore) thoughts are light years away to become reality!
Still prayer knows no logic; my irrational brain prays for India.
“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 in 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.”
Let’s hope, we witness these b’ful thoughts of Gurudev jelling into reality in 2015 for my India.
Happy New Year to Every Indian.
