Do you think the poet’s wish in his poem ‘Where the Mind is Without Fear’ has been fulfilled? Give two reasons for your answer. / Is the dream of the poet realized ? if so how? if not why?
Yes, he poet’s wish has been fulfilled partially.
How? The people are now fearless and not under any external rule. Moreover, they have gained knowledge and the sense of self-dignity.
But everything Tagore wished is not fulfilled yet. The barriers of religion and caste are not yet gone. Though these are much lower in number today, superstitions are still present in some places.
It’s difficult to pin-point why his dreams are not realized fully. For such a big nation like India, or for the whole world, it’s not easy to remove all the social evils by a short notice. The large variety in language and religious faith, poverty, illiteracy and poor governance may be noted as some of the possible reasons. Hopefully, it’s just a matter or time before those are curbed to a marginal line.
