Vakrangee CEO butchers Tagore poem

Vakrangee stock price has been plummeting in the last few days.

Even today, it is at the lower circuit as can be seen below:

The management at Vakrangee is understandably perturbed and has released a Letter to shareholders explaining the situation.

This letter contained this excerpt:

The heading is of course a clear cut murder of Tagore’s famous poem ‘Where the mind is without fear’ which goes like this:

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 depths 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
          thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

Respected management of Vakrangee, a plummeting stock price does not give you permission to butcher one of our favourite poems

One reply on “Vakrangee CEO butchers Tagore poem”

Share holder like me who purchsed your company shares paying double of today’s market price will bleed profusely. Poems will not stop those bleeding shedding the hard earned, ethical money into the drain. Take confidence building measures and arrest the falling share prices. We cannot say the LTCGT is the only reason for this slump, because Vakrangee shares started plummeting well before budget.
