This is no longer about Hussain. How would Rabindranath Tagore write that peom today?
"Where the mind is filled with fear and the head is kept low
Where vandals are free
Where the world is broken into fragments of narrow domestic walls
Where the clear stream of reason has lost its way in the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where tireless striving stretching its arms towards perfection faces obstruction
Inrto that hell of serfdom, my country lies: we hold the wake."
