WE ADORE YOU ‘COZ, YOU ARE YOU! (Musing on Teachers’ Day - 5th September)


(Musing on Teachers’ Day - 5th September)


Oh! Selfless hearts! You are our marvelous facilitators;

The fountain of knowledge and the temple of wisdom!

You’re never found wanting as you are like the great ocean;

That supports life with immense treasures; yet unfathomable!


You love us more than we love you; even more, at times of trouble;

You are the epitome of goodness; as we learn all that are blemish less!

Wiped out tears, we still remember; and we just laughed forgetting the past;

The patting on back was a morale booster; to help us scale new heights!


Most of all, we see you as a stupendous felicitator;

As you complement us irrespective of what we are;

We adore you as you are; for you expect no return;

But carry us through, till we achieve our intellectual goals!


You’re the embodiment of indomitable but ‘never say no spirit’;

You never fail to open up our heavenly eyes to ascend the summit!

You light up the forbearance of patience and the honest virtues of mankind!

Oh! Beloved teachers! We believe your profession is quite thankless!


You stretched your clean hands, to make us stand;

You consoled us when we cried, and made us smile;

But for you, we would have had a sudden death!

Yet, you saved us off from all unseen perils of life!


Hats off! You great loveable persons ‘coz, you have made us soar high;

No pain or sorrow can touch us, for you have given us the immunity!

You are a great psychiatrist who heals all mental sickness and worries;

We acknowledge you as the world’s greatest person, ‘Coz, you are you!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Though, teachers' profession is quite thankless, still teachers extend their selfless service to mankind by moulding up the character of young kids without expecting any returns.

Appropriate for 5th September Respected Ben Sir

Nice introspective gathering of wordiness and appropriate for 5th September Respected Ben Sir.During the last 20 years there has been a decay in the quality of education in our country.(I'm talking of School education upto Class XII) A toddler,scarcely 3 years old begins in a pre-school deprived of 2-3 hours of his playtime.The child is made to memorise Nursery Rhymes.. one of which "Humpty Dumpty".Does the child comprehend the funniness in the poem? Actually two eggs wer balanced on a wall.No reason why they shouldn't fall.Just imagine Mr Ben 2 eggs dressed in human clothes having spindly legs and arms.Then the eggs fall down and splatter on the ground Laughing Does the child get fun out of the poem?Then the so-called syllabus grows more & more. The child staggers with the weight of his heavy books for a mere piece of paper called a "certificate"At the end of the rat race the "rat" still remains a "rat" Teachers can't be blamed at all. They may make attempts to instil "real values" and "morality" into kids.Education ends after school (in my humble opinion) College is just a stepping-stone to a high-salaried job.Respect? Where will teachers get respect? The students haven't learnt it in school !! As for teachers..it's just another job.Sorry for the long "disgrouse"Excuse me.. Bye.

A 'chappathi' is 'chappathi' and a 'child' is 'child'.  Even if thousands of Humpty Dumpties were to fall nothings going to change.  As its said, 'It's almost impossible to change others; hence we got to change ourselves'.  Now the trend is just giving the child a start; and providing it the rest to explore on its own to find the rest.  My policy is to leave alone the child so that it can learn the rest from nature.  But then parents exert a lot of pressure on children to make them grow like broiler chickens injected with harmons to enhance the growth!  Can't help!  Unless people change their attitude towards education, it will be just rote learning from which nothing creative and productive can take place.  Thanks for the comment.
