An Introduction to Spoken Kashmiri



Section Two

Interlogue - II

Dear Friends,

The moment, cordiality embraces love, 
The very same moment 
Light dispels darkness: 
The snowy peaks glitter, glaciers gleam, 
The waters shine and twinkle, like stars, 
In the clear, blue skies; 
A cool breeze blows. 
The swinging ripples lend grace 
And go a-dancing, a-dancing 
To the rhythm & music of soothing splashes 
Amidst the flashes of inner and outer reflections 
From mirrory lakes; 
The earth goes green: 
As the guilder rose bursts open 
Into welcome bloom 
To push back cloudy gloom:

Dear Reader,

Breathe refreshing air under the shade of breezy chinars, bring down tempers, calm tension ridden, violent minds and work for peace, progress and prosperity throughout the country, Let us, in all humility, submission & BHAKTI, join together in prayer, chanting Rabindra Nath Tagore's exhortations to the Almighty. Lord of the universe. Thus:

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 sands of dead habit: 
Where the mind is led forward by thee 
Into ever-widening thoughts and actions, 
Unto that heaven of freedom, my father, let my counts, 

Rabindra Nath Tagore
