How is Tagore’ poem ‘Where the Mind is Without Fear’ relevant to life in the present?

Mention a few domestic artificial walls and divisions still present in our country.

Tagore’s poem Where the Mind is Without Fear has passed more than a century, but it is still equally relevant. The qualities that the poet has talked about in the poem are indeed universal. We do need to achieve those to live a happy and peaceful life. Unless you are knowledgeable, rational, truthful, broad-minded, hardworking and fearless, you cannot get success in life and live a happy life. We have achieved only political freedom, but we haven’t been able to realize that freedom fully. Still there are the curses of superstitions, caste system, disunity, illiteracy and so on. So, this poem has not lost its relevance even now.

The divisions created based on religions, caste systems, social and economic positions and even different colours and languages are all domestic walls still present not only in our country, but all over the world.
