According to the poet Rabindranath Tagore in his poem ‘Where the Mind is Without Fear’, outdated customs and traditions are like a dreary desert which blocks the way of clear stream of reasoning. Those are hindrance to the progress of a nation and not al all relevant in our present day life. Thus he calls those customs ‘dead habits’ and advises us to be logical instead of following those blindly.
