Rabindranath Tagore was a great patriot and in his poem Where the Mind is Without Fear we find the elements of his patriotism. First of all, the poem is concerned with his country and countrymen. The poet is thoughtful of what qualities his countrymen are lacking to enjoy a satisfying freedom. The poet is praying to the God to let his country awake to a heaven of freedom. All these clearly show his concern and love for the country, i.e., India.
