Comment on the appropriateness of the title of Tagore’s poem “where is the mind without fear”.
“Where the Mind is Without Fear”, the title of Tagore’s poem is merely the first line of the poem. It refers to the place where people would be fearless, a heaven of freedom that the poet dreams of. Tagore prays to the God to lift his country to such a place where people would not only be fearless, but also knowledgeable, truthful, hard-working, rational and broad-minded enough to enjoy freedom at its best. And probably, fearlessness was the first condition that came to Tagore’s mind while writing about his heaven of freedom. So, the title of the poem very well expresses what the poet wishes for, making it thematically relevant and apt.
