Noble among human
but next to parents and soldiers of nation
An altruistic commitment
Unlike power loving aspirants
Mother of all the profession
Sixth finger is his ultimate creation
For the great Alexander
Parents may give birth alone
but a teacher alone introduces us to the world.
For Tagore, a light lights many to glow.
Though students can learn self, through
media, computer and many other sources.
A teacher may be a facilitator of learning
but a true disciple never forget him as his ladder,
A country ahead of others, regards its teachers
He’s the ultimate elevator of human society.
Nature too is a real teacher to mend life
Forgetting it is taught by Tsunami, earthquake
Land slide, volcano, flood and drought and many
Realized disciples regard values of teachers.
Critics too became great achievers of immorality.
A thief by his profession teaches
every human to be aware ever.
Fun kindles innocence, teaching laugh,
but never let others to laugh at us
Teachings may vary but no teacher
can substitute self experience in life.
