hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

Pillars


Teachers were considered as exemplary
Modern builder for country as necessary
The brick layer of foundation and building
Present all the time for children and help in studying

Let us not quote individual case
But of late it has made several misses
Instead of making lively show
The standard has gone down very low

It has been fully commercialized
That impact is clearly realized
The goal is lost in wilderness
We can see the frustration on face

Not teacher alone but profession too
It is open to all for confession
The schools are opened like cat’s top
This practice goes non stop

Teachers are recruited on personal reputation
Most of the people are from near relation
If they are not then it is purchased job
The brilliant men are deprived or robbed

Some of incidences appear as black spot
The girls are teased and teachers are openly caught
Some of them get easily released on apology
Some stays behind to make it worse with pity

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
