Poem for a Ballot 

Poem for a Ballot

"Where the heart 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 sands 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 our country awake."

by Rabindranath Tagore, one of India's great poet laureates, the recipient of the Nobel Prize for literature in 1917, and friend of Mahatma Gandhi.
