Living Life -imitation of Rabindranath Tagore

 I am tempted to imitate an excellent and famous verse by Rabindranath Tagore 

“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”. 

–by Rabindranath Tagore 

              My imitated version on

‘Living life and setting down in life’

Where life is lived and leads us out of these compulsions:

Where life is made to pass through motions of /phases of existence

So that it can settle down somehow, somewhere in some way;

Where life’s activities have to confirm to existing approved labels;

Where life is deprived of any unbiased free observations;
Where life’s relationships are confined by narrow expectations of reciprocation;

Where life is subjected to scrutiny with ulterior motives and hidden agendas;

Where life’s interactions happen with lurking suspicions and simmering discontent;

Where life’s inter relatedness goes unnoticed because of narrow identity cages;

Let us live a life observing, experiencing and enjoying as it unfolds continuously flowing like a gentle river without settling down;

Let us enjoy the playful innocence of childhood;

Let us enjoy the carefree abandon of youth;

Let us learn the pleasures, privileges and responsibility of blossoming adulthood;

Let us enjoy romance and relate with love;

Let us experience the inter relatedness of everything and everyone;

Let nature/fate decide to settle down life by stopping oxygen supply.
