October 1 Meditation: Where the mind is without fear...

"...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." R. Tagore

October 1st is here in few hours, many people would be proclaiming Happy Independence Day to the Giant of Africa. As much as I recall those years when the day mean so much to us as children, I cringe with disappointment, at the realization that the dreams of our founding fathers has yet to take root, more than 50 years after that.

There is nothing really to celebrate as our history have shown that we only succeeded in transiting from Colonial (physical) Slavery to become a tool of oppression in hands of more vicious and complicated Slavery... we are have effectively entered the era of Mental and Intellectual Slavery...and our own people who claimed to love us are the new masters. Each time we come to our sense, they manufacture crisis and violence that compel us to accept status quo as the only viable option...

Look all around you and see the growing list of intellectual thugs harassing our sensibility everyday with lies, propaganda while each working to programme us to worship their political pay masters. Look all around as the few good ones have been effectively neutralized and sent to political hibernation. They can only watch from their house. There is however many reason to be introspective and to hope for better time. And there are still many people who hold the ideals and and energy to turn things around if only they were encouraged by the same people who needed them badly.

This country is one of the most fortunate countries in the world. The things it has passed through and survived over the years have wrecked many countries yet it continues to stand despite the efforts of the selfish politicians and their militants across the country.

I am sharing the thought of Rabindranath Tagore for my nation as the time tick tick tick to the hour...

"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."

You should never forget... The Dream of our Nation.
