Best Wishes to INDIA and PAKISTAN on their 60th Birthday. There have been challenges and conflicts between INDIA and PAKISTAN but both Nations have come a long way since their separation. Hopefully the march to progress and peace is continued. Someone sent me a poem today by R.N. Tagore , Yes this is INDIA…

Where the mind is without fear

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
