Model Review of the poem "Where the Mind is Without Fear" for Read and Reflect activity

 Read and Reflect activity for Formative Assessment

MODEL REVIEW OF A POEM

Name of the poetry: Where the mind is without fear

Name of the author: Rabindranath Tagore

Genre of the piece of writing: Poetry

Summary of the Poetry:

This poem is a contemplation of a state of being, a place in time, and a way of living into which the author, Tagore, wishes his country, India, would awaken. The first nine lines of the poem present a number of statements in which begin with the word, “Where…” These statements are each positive attributes which Tagore is hoping India will achieve. The poem resolves by finishing all of these sentences, and Tagore making a plea to his Father, for his country to wake up into “that heaven of freedom.”

 My Reflections:

                          In this poem Tagore dreamt of a heaven of freedom for his country where people would be fearless, knowledgeable, rational, united, truthful, hard working and broad minded.

A lot has happened since then, but we haven’t achieved the heaven. Though our country has achieved freedom, it’s been mere political freedom, not the spiritual one that Tagore wanted. Still we see the divisions among people based on their caste, class, religion and such baseless things. The country is still dipped in superstitious beliefs, corruption, illiteracy and poverty. Hence, Tagore’s wish has not been fulfilled yet.  That is why we find the poem equally relevant today.

WHERE THE MIND IS WITHOUT FEAR

-          Rabindranath Tagore

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

PAST SIMPLE OR PAST PERFECT explanation and quiz of 25 MCQs for all

PAST SIMPLE OR PAST PERFECT

We use Past Indefinite (Simple) to say about past actions. It stresses the competition of an action. In sentences with the Simple past verb, the time of action may be expressed or not.

We came back yesterday. 

Columbus discovered America.

The past perfect shows that something had happened before another past event or past point of time. Thus it is past before past or double past.

Compare : 

1) The patient died. ( Simple past) 

2. The patient had died before the doctor arrived.

( The first completed action should be in past perfect and the second completed action in past indefinite).

Hence the past perfect can't be used when there is reference to only one past action.

I had got your message yesterday.( Not acceptable)

I got your message yesterday. ( Accepted)

When we refer to two past actions in a sentence, the past perfect is used for the earlier of the two actions.

However, if the two past actions took place in quick succession, the past simple is used to refer to both the actions as in: When he noticed me, he waved me.

The thief had escaped when the guard opened the gate.( Not acceptable)

The thief escaped when the guard had opened the gate.( Acceptable)

When one action happened well before another past action and the sequence is clearly expressed, the right tense form is past perfect. (Adopted from SADASIVA S)
