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

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

————Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore

Independence Day, celebrated religiously throughout the country on 15 August every year, holds a special place in the heart of every Indian. It reminds us about the dawn of a new beginning, the beginning of an era of liberation from the clutches of British colonialism of more than 200 years.
