            Here's a virtual movie of the great Bengali Poet Rabindranath Tagore reciting his poem "Where The Mind Is Without Fear" The following definitive notes are taken by open invitation from the excellent youtube channel Bloom Books Channel Rabindranath Tagore 1861–1941 A native of Calcutta, India, who wrote in Bengali and often translated his own work into English, Rabindranath Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 — the first Asian to receive the honor. He wrote poetry, fiction, drama, essays, and songs; promoted reforms in education, aesthetics and religion; and in his late sixties he even t https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzJoQ_VphMQ Where The Mind Is Without Fear, the most famous of Rabindranath Tagore's poems, is misunderstood as prose or free verse. Actually, Tagore locked the lines so that half-wits and dull-wits shall not sing it. Who will believe a young poet born in a house where veena, tabala and harmonium resounded day and night and was thickly populated by the most talented poets, singers, artists and musicians of Bengal at that time will not have a magnificent tune embedded in his poem? Listen to this song here. It's an old English song which often found its way into many English text books the world over. Here is a primitive prototype rendering of this song, made in a crude tape recorder decades earlier. It's part of a project PROPÈS INDIA or Project For The Popularization of English Songs In India. Recorded from an English class by Mr. P.S.Remesh Chandran. It's free for reuse, and anyone interested can develop and build on it, till it becomes a fine video musical production, to help little learners. Building a video or cinematic version of this song would certainly be needing talent and imagination. We hope a full and refined video of this song will be made by others, who have access to costly recording studios, musical instruments and sophisticated equipment. Listen to this song in Sound Cloud at https://soundcloud.com/bloom-books-tr.... It is downloadable. Also please read this pictureful and informative article: 'My First English Recitation Videos Took Thirty Years To Produce. By P.S.Remesh Chandran.' WHERE THE MIND IS WITHOUT FEAR Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments By narrow domestic walls Where words come out from the depth of truth Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit Where the mind is led forward by thee Into ever-widening thought and action Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

              Here's a virtual movie of the 12th Century Persian Poet and Mystic Rumi reading his much loved philosophical Poem "The Guest House" This reading ends part way into the poem,but encapsulates the essential meaning of the poem - To always endeavor to Keep an open and welcoming heart" Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī (Persian: جلال‌الدین محمد رومی‎), also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī (جلال‌الدین محمد بلخى), Mawlānā (مولانا, "our master"), Mevlânâ, Mevlevî (مولوی Mawlawī, "my master"), and more popularly simply as Rūmī (1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian[1][8] poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic.[9] Rumi's influence transcends national borders and ethnic divisions: Iranians, Tajiks, Turkish, Greeks, Pashtuns, other Central Asian Muslims, and the Muslims of South Asia have greatly appreciated his spiritual legacy for the past seven centuries.[10] His poems have been widely translated into many of the world's languages and transposed into various formats. Rumi has been described as the "most popular poet"[11] and the "best selling poet" in the United States.[12][13] Rumi's works are written mostly in Persian, but occasionally he also used Greek,[14][15][16] Arabic, and Turkish in his verse.[17][18] His Mathnawī, composed in Konya, remains one of the purest literary glories of the Persian language.[19][20] His works are widely read today in their original language across Greater Iran and the Persian-speaking world.[21] Translations of his works are very popular, most notably in Turkey, Azerbaijan, the United States, and South Asia.[22] His poetry has influenced Persian literature, but also Turkish, Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu, as well as the literature of some other Turkic, Iranian, and Indo-Aryan languages including Chagatai, Pashto, and Bengali.
