M.D Dinesh Nair (Thrissur/Vijayawada)
TO THE PUPIL WHO IS IN DILEMMA
You have to be my beloved lad:
'A fearless dreamer,
A petitioner of your unspoken love,
A wild catcher of time and
A passionate friend'.
You must not be my dear lass:
'Moody and foolish,
Illusive or day dreaming,
Ill tempered or vain some and
Emotional or sensitive'.
And both of you listen:
'Let the mind flutter like a kite
And let it not hide like a mouse.
Let your head be held high in esteem
And never bend your knee before the worthless lot'.
