How do the dead habits obstruct the realization of freedom according to the poet in Where the Mind is Without Fear?
‘Freedom’ is all about living a happy and peaceful life, without any unwanted restrictions. So, a free nation should progress at a good pace towards modern civilization. But ‘dead habits’ or the prejudices don’t promote free thinking, thereby curbing our possibility to do something unusual or extraordinary, to excel in our life. We may feel restricted every now and then. Therefore, these ‘dead habits’ are great hindrance to the development process of a nation. In such a situation, real ‘freedom’ cannot be achieved or realized.
