What does the poet wish for in the poem “Where the mind is without fear” by Rabindranath Tagore?
The poet wants the people to be wise enough to lead a happy and peaceful life where they can enjoy their freedom well. The people should be fearless, logical, broadminded, knowledgeable and they should not believe superstitions. They should have a sense of self dignity and should be proud of the country and should be proud to be an Indian.
The poet prays to the Almighty for a ‘heaven of freedom‘ for his country where people would be fearless, knowledgeable, truthful, dignified, hard-working, logical and broadminded.
The poet appeals to the Almighty for political freedom from British. He also appeals for social, educational and economic freedom for the people of India.
