In his poem 'Where the Mind is Without Fear,' Rabindranath Tagore shares his feelings about walls between mankind. He want to see a world that is not "shattered into shards by confining household walls." The term "domestic" might be interpreted in several ways here. It might be geographical or internal. Either way, Tagore wants a world where people are not free to act as they please within their own countries but instead have to worry about what other people think of them. This isn't just a dream for Tagore; it's also something that many governments around the world try to achieve through laws and policies.
Tagore was a prominent Indian poet and philosopher. One of his most famous poems is called "The Song of the Wandering Pilgrim," and in it he sings the virtues of a worldly-less life. When he wrote this poem in 1913, he was living in Germany, where he learned about the horrors of World War I first-hand. After returning to India, he started a non-profit organization called "Friends of Foreigners," which helped refugees from various conflicts find refuge in India. In addition, he worked to promote peace throughout Europe and Asia.
Here are some lines from the poem: "O wandering stranger! O mind without fear! / I hear a voice that calls me from afar - / It is the voice of love - that bids me come home!"
As "man establishes boundaries and he breaches borders," the poem analyzes the inconsistencies in life and mankind, including the conflicts inside each individual. It also investigates the significance of borders in human civilization, since rebuilding the wall serves to both separate and link the two neighbors, creating yet another paradox. Finally, the poem suggests that perhaps the only solution to all these problems is through understanding.
In conclusion, The Mending Wall states that even though walls don't mend and hearts do, it is still possible to mend a wall and try to heal the heart through love and kindness.
Rabindranath Tagore, the poet, feels his mother's presence as if she were still living with him, demonstrating her enormous love and care. He recalls his mother's singing when she rocked the cradle. She is always present in his thoughts.
Tagore was born on April 2, 1861, in Chitpur, now in Bangladesh. His father was a government official who later became the mayor of Calcutta (now Kolkata). Young Rabindranath had a happy childhood where music and art were important elements. When he was seven years old, his parents moved to Baranagar, which was then one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of Calcutta. There he could enjoy many activities such as going to the public park, where people would come to listen to musicians play, or visiting the home of his uncle, who was a famous artist.
At the age of 12, after his father died, Tagore went to live with an older brother in London. From there he sent money home so that he could continue his education. In 1875 he came back to India and started working for the Indian Post Office. Three years later he was promoted to be manager of a division of post offices in Bengal. In 1882 he was assigned to Dacca (now Dhaka) to work as secretary to the governor.
The poet is referring to the'sadness' that we create by our own thinking and behaviour. We comprehend a lot of things, but not ourselves or our actions. His haste and haste create us problems. He is determined to start battles against mankind. Therefore, he wants to know how much sadness there is in the world.
Mankind has made itself unhappy by its thoughts and deeds. The poet refers to hatred, anger, jealousy, and all other kinds of unpleasant feelings. Some people even fight wars over petty matters; others spoil their happiness by being jealous of others. As long as humans will think and act like this, they will never be happy.
Although we know what causes us pain, we keep doing it again and again. It is because we do not want to feel bad!
People should learn not to judge others and themselves. If we did this, many problems would disappear.
The poet is referring to the walls of class, caste, creed, color, religion, and other factors that separate individuals. In most situations, they are superstitious beliefs with no foundation. The poet is saying that such barriers can be removed by having true friendship.
In this context, "fragment" means a part. So, the wall is divided into fragments all over which are different colors. This shows that no single thing can define an individual; instead, we need look at many characteristics to understand them. Also, "a piece of the wall" can mean a token of respect. For example, if someone meets you with one hand raised, it is said to be done as a "finger gun", a popular custom in the 1920s-1940s when guns were widely used instead.
So, here the poet is saying that one needs only look at the good qualities of people to see that they are all the same under the skin. There are no good men and bad men, just men with different talents who happen to be standing next to each other. True friendship allows us to see these differences and not judge people based on their origins or status. It is this quality that breaks down barriers between individuals.
In the final words, the poet believes that we may learn from the land. It can teach us the value of silence. The land looks to be calm and quiet, yet it is truly thriving with life. We need only look within ourselves to see how much energy and activity are present too; we just cannot see it because it is hidden from view.
The poet is saying that we should not take the world around us for granted. Even though we might think that they are still, the land and the elements, they are really living and breathing just like us. We need to remember this because soon they will be gone forever.
People often love being on land because there are so many opportunities to explore it. However, we must also remember that it will never be the same again after we have seen it alive with wildlife and felt its power when a storm hits or a volcano erupts. We need to appreciate these beautiful places while they are here for us to see.
This little poem contrasts thoughts on the locations of two distinct socioeconomic groupings. The poet and her people refer to what the broader (white) culture deems the inner city as "home." At the same time, the inner city perception of "uptown" is of a lifeless location with little attraction. Thus, the poem questions whether the urban environment is truly hostile or if the residents have no choice but to adapt.
The poem begins by stating that the girl has come into her inheritance and that she wishes to know what she should do with it. She then imagines buying a house in "uptown" and making it like hers in the inner city. Finally, she realizes that neither option is feasible and decides to use her money to help those less fortunate than herself. She establishes a charitable foundation in her memory called "The Inner City Girl's Trust."
Although this poem was written over 100 years ago, it reflects many societal concerns surrounding poverty, violence, and addiction in today's cities.
