Devanshi Khetarpal (17th March 1999 / Bhopal)
Assurance, Endurance, Brilliance
A helping hand, cascading upon aureate drops
Of devout, seamlessly stretching benedictions of love and trust.
Here comes a guru, one who makes a child reach the mountain tops.
One who moulds a soft core yet which stands fearless at its crust.
Hand in hand, over precarious roads, he walks beside
Assuring and harbouring a dream in his arms.
He holds tight, no matter what and vows to be on the young dream's side.
And with his hand, all dreams become true like nonpareil charms.
And with his extraordinary endurance, he strives
Diligently and persistently, protects the little tots
From the whips of all obstacles to render successful lives.
It's all because of a guru that those tots become big shots.
Due to his hard-work, his endless sacrifice,
He leads that dream onto burnished ways,
And thus the dream brandishing his ice
Chants the person who led him to brilliance across the days.
Teachers are immortal souls, shining beams;
Persons apt to be collocated with God,
Upon whose feet tread millions of dreams.
And for teachers like you, we simply can't stop the applaud.
