Great Personalities

gandhi4


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.

-Rabindranath Tagore

Bhag Milkha Bhag (meaning Run Milkha Run) – Movie Review

Bhag Milkha Bhag

It is a movie inspired by the life of Milkha Singh . Milkha Singh is a veteran Indian athelete. Milkha Singh has won several medals for India in events such as Asian games, Olympics etc. He was given the title of ‘Flying Sikh’ by Pakistan’s then president Ayub Khan after winning an athletic event held there.

It is a movie of racing ones dreams and fulfilling them with determination. Milkha Singh’s life was full of hardships and struggle. Inspite of all this he struggled to fulfil his dreams and reached to the top.

Farhan Akhtar (Milkha Singh), Sonam Kapoor, Prakash Raj, Rebecca Breeds, Meesha Shafi, Divya Dutta.
