    sir maurice gwyer, Rabindranath Tagore, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, August 7, 1940

    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.

    It's actually irony. Rabindranth Tagore is an enlightened soul. when he wrote "Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake..." he was referring to India, like much of his articles, slogans etc., and he opposed the partition as an Indian Nationalist. But after, 23 years, when Bangladesh was born, they, took the first 10 lines of his "Amar sonar Bangla" due their new found love of Bengali language, culture ...

    Surprisingly Bangladeshis on this forum are not very proud of that fact. They (some people like Al-Zakir) want to change the national anthem, their country's name, flag and even language, if possible.

    But it is contrary to what real Bangladeshis here in the UK feel, they are very much proud of their language, culture and people. Mithun/Saurav Ganguly/Tagore/Pranav Mukherjee have probably more fan following in Bangladesh than rest of India (apart from paschimbanga obviously).
