Today, I wish for my country…

It’s India’s 67th Republic Day. And as we move forward and take our place in the sun, here’s what I wish for. It’s by eminent poet & Nobel Laureate and the only man who’s composed the national anthems of two countries (India & Bangladesh) – Rabindranath Tagore, and is a masterful, inspirational piece of poetry. I’m sure most Indians on this forum will be familiar with it!

Enjoy the read!

  1. Happy Republic day! Is it a public holiday? Thank you for sharing the poem. It’s pertinent for my country and its people too. I especially like the second to last line since I think we often fall short of connecting thought with action. Best. Chevvy
