3 Idiots (indian movie) - lesson to learn

An aspiration to fulfill
Parents dreams – one cannot kill
A system not offering a free will
Interest takes a back seat in this classroom drill

Admitted to a college of renown
This degree, route to the crown
Freeway to the best job
A rat race among this elite mob

Exams and assignments with dead lines
Syllabus vast, causing cramps on the neckline
Burning the midnight oil
With coffee always on the boil

An interest different from the text
Mind not in sync with the rest
A exam to compete, and be the best
Mind and body crumble before every test

Stress takes a toll
Mind gives up on this call
Decides to end it all
Suicide on mind – fatal is the fall

Life is one, death inevitable
Pursue your interest in this short interval
Live for yourself and enjoy every moment
The ride will be joyful and never dormant

Treasure friendship
It’s not just a relationship
Gives you your zest in any hardship
Costs nothing to seal this partnership

A simple lesson for parents who push
3 idiots shows you the way around this bush
Give them freedom to decide
It’s their life – it’s for them to preside

When time is short, dreams play a big part
Let them begin at the “start”
A good beginning with the morning bell
It will always be time to say

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
