25th of Baishak

Kabi Guru Rabindranath Thakur

Hello guys! Today we celebrate ‘Pachise Boishak’. This really is a very important day as is it the birth day of a most unique man- a poet, a lyricist, a writer, one of the most brilliant men who set foot on the Earth- the bday of Rabindranath Tagore. Today even the hot Sun, raising temperature in Kolkata to 40 degree Celsius, can not lower the spirit of men and women. From dawn till dusk I can only hear the Nightingale like voices sing Rabindranath’s songs, recite his poems, love, respect and adore him. Tagore did not only start a new school, wrote brilliant poems and songs, won the Nobel Prize but also started a new culture- a culture of love, brotherhood, freedom and equality. Today I pay my respects to this Bengali legacy by only saying that we are trying to build, we will build the country where-

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 to ever-widening thought and action.
