Plagiarism is alive



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.

Where the mind cowers in the face of injustice and servile submission is the norm;
Where the carcass of knowledge has been bartered for the silhouette of currency;
Where the world has been broken up into fragments by intolerant buffoonery;
Where words come out from the bowels of falsehood and the deepest depths of ignorance;
Where steady grovelling has no need for perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has been swallowed by the sea of incongruous belief;
Where the rabid greed of a few is the silent misery of many;
Where multitudes are united only by a lack of resolve;
Where religion rears its ugly head at the confluence of ignorance and tradition;
Out of this abyss of drudgery, let my country awake.
