The poet in ‘Where The Mind Is Without Fear’ has described ‘reason’ or logical thinking as a ‘clear stream’ that can wash away the stagnant heap of superstitions and ‘dead habits’. Indeed, good rational thinking is what can clear our mind of all evils of prejudice and can lead to the nation’s progress.

This question is very similar to the already existing question: What are reason and dead habits compared to and why?
