Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s Poem Where the mind is without fear is a pre-independent poem in which the poet seeks complete freedom, a political and spiritual freedom:
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not 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!

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is driving the Kashmir train on the wrong track of ultranationalism that cost India 25 percent of its land and 20 percent of its people in 1947.

The nirvana lies in a blueprint that was secretly drafted a decade ago by two former leaders of India and Pakistan but failed to execute because of their sudden departure from office.

I had to catch my first international flight in April, 2005 all alone! Those who came to see me off were large in number. At last I was left alone. I took my luggage to weigh to the scales and see whether it fulfilled 50 pounds per suitcase. Never had I lifted anything more than 5 lbs in my life. Every time I boarded a train or a bus a porter would help me out. In India, we rely on porters, servants, and “others” such as electricians, plumbers, who assist with a minimum “fee.”

India is back to square one, thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move Monday to scrap special political rights for a Muslim-majority state in the Hindu-dominated country.
