Self-referencing: Anger

Bhagavad Gita, chapter 2, verse 63

Considering that this verse is associated with teachings concerning ‘desires of the mind’, could this mean that there may be forms of anger that are not related to ‘desires of the mind’? If not, what other kinds anger might there be? What effects do these other kinds of anger have (if there are any)? Think this over and then try this experiment:

Throughout your day, notice when you feel angry and see if you can track your anger down to some kind of desire. Any kind of desire. Once you have identified this source of your anger, see if you think it qualifies as a ‘desire of the mind’ or not, and if not, what the source of it is.

Is there any time or place when anger is appropriate?
[As far as I know, there is no right or wrong answer to this question. It is for your own edification only.]
