Today is the National Education Day. To celebrate it, we picked this poem titled “Where the Mind is Without Fear” by Rabindranath Tagore.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was considered the greatest writer in modern Indian literature. A Bengali poet, novelist, and an educator. This poem, written in the early 20th century, reflects the political and social struggles of India during the period of British rule. The poet envisions a nation where intellectual freedom, unity, and the pursuit of knowledge are valued.

Happy National Education Day!
