CALICUT, 18 Sept, 2012 - How often do we celebrate Life’s Teachers who have taught us lessons that make us what we are today?

 

A teacher observes the person in making,

Adding his noble touch, to preserve the element;

A life full of ‘wrongs’ has blemished his aura,

Teacher steps into his shoes, to revive the halo.

 

Heroes faithfully rescue people from others,

Teachers virtuously rescue people from themselves,

For a Teacher is first a Student in a sanctuary of Life,

An experienced hand, guiding many of his Own.

 

Life lessons are taught along the way:

When fame is the name of the selfish game,

Compromise not on your values to make a name,

For it would eventually cost you your bigger game.

 

Best partnerships are built on mutual trust,

As curiosity is nurtured, wisdom softly speaks,

Humble in spirit, forgiving, just and kind,

For only he has faith-after we have resigned.
