Gangadharan nair Pulingat..


The punishment.


Sasankan the most intelligent and hardworking student
Being the disciple and student of a perfect lovely teacher
But strict in classes and harsh punishment to little errors
Things were pretty going and harshest punishment awarded
The little and to be ignored errors of sasankan
He gave scolding and punishment by beat of cain
The excruciating pain made the student's mind in rage
otherwise he was pious, gentle, loyal, and lovely one

Another day also he got the most cruel punishment
The hard work to do in the school compound alone
Otherwise he will not be allowed to attend the classes
The boy thought that the teacher was extremely cruel
Isolating and destroying his future in such harshness
He decided for vengeance and return back against the teacher
And kept a stone in his hand and climbed the stairs
Of the house of the teacher one day to teach him a lesson

In the full moon night it was the teacher told the wife
I gives punishment to my beloved and most brilliant student
To change him and his intelligence without a black spot
Just like in this full moon my dear you understand
The most loved one among the students is he
His intelligence, courage, studious nature supreme
My name as a teacher is through his performance in future
The best of the teachers who loves his student in mind
But not showing not the open favorable emotions
Since there starts his mental ruin I fear!

Poor sasankan felt extremely sorry on his wrong notion
what I can do for my sin of thoughts he exclaimed
He went back and in the early morning he awoke
Straight he walked to the teacher's residence
What punishment to a student having such an ill motive
Against a perfect teacher he asked to him
Amusing the question the teacher told his disciple
Who the culprit my dear boy please tell to me
I am that sinner who mistook your punishments
As a purposeful destroying talent of mine I thought
Don't take serious my dear boy you are my most favored
Write a best of poetry regarding the relationship
Between the teacher and student and inspiring both
Then only will the curse on the ill motive wiped out

A teacher best to teach his students and inspires him
Lives for ever through the generations of students
Sasankan wrote a fine poetry in sanskrit
Which was famous and still relevant the scholars say..
