With deep sorrow, and profound apologies to Gurudev #Tagore:

Where the mind is full of fear and the head is hung low
Where knowledge is mercilessly censored 
Where the nation has been fragmented 
By narrow jingoistic walls 
Where words come out from doctored truths
Where frustration and hopelessness perpetuate mediocrity 
Where irrationality and bigotry have forced reason out
Into the desert of ignorance and superstition 
Where the mind is led astray by paid media 
Into ever-narrowing thought and inaction 
From that hell of suffocation, my friends, let our #country awake
