    World Students' Day
    .................................

    When one teaches two learn
    That is the way education is won
    Learning is not the student alone
    Teachers learning from students is known

    Treating every pupil as an individual
    Omiting rating and comparison
    Understands the words of every silence
    Meticulously keeping home and school in balance

    Understands a blank look
    Or aimlessly gazing at the book
    Knows what a half hearted smile means
    A mix up of sad and happy heart sees

    Treats every child as an unopened treasure
    And loves each student with unending measure
    Readily becomes the students' second parent
    And loves every student's presence

    Teachers aren't born but made by students
    Mere guidance proves the students' prudence
    When one teaches two learn
    Yes, this is the way education is won.

    Enso

    Several imperfections lead to perfection
    This is the rule of creation
    Hence perfection ain't the real mission
    To smoothen the rocky path without being brazen
    And achieve perfection is everyone's imagination
    What really matters is the determination
    Which converts imperfections to perfection

    Once when I was young.......

    Once when I was young
    Was very prone to life's song
    Felt sad at a frown
    But now I'm strong
    I've learnt the rules
    In whatever I do
    Just do my best
    And forget about the rest
    For I may not please all
    But that's life's call
    Whoever has succeeded
    In pleasing everything needed
    Yet life goes on
    Waiting for none
    Age not alone brought grace
    But taught me to lower my pace
    And create my own space
    Whilst knowing my own place
    Yes, once I was young
    Unconsciously sang joyful songs
    Caring less for critics
    But now I understand the songs lyrics.

    It's a paradox
    ........................

    Is it a blessing or a curse
    Got to face it , better or for worse
    The face of humanity has changed
    Lives of beings to be rearranged

    The phase only to be named pandemic
    The change brought about is but epic
    The change of nature is for betterment
    Got rid of toxic pollutants

    In the process lost uncountable lives
    Widowed were multiple wives
    Pitiful children were orphaned
    Families left empty without children

    Seems a neverending calamity
    Social distancing and other formalities
    Humans to be safe away from humans
    Human safety more of a confusion

    Weeks, months years have passed
    How much longer will this disaster last
    When will we freely life normal retain
    Hug and feel eachother's heartbeats once again

    She's a Silver Tree
    .................................

    Silver fruit on silver trees
    The moon too admires her grace
    Face gleams by the light of the moon
    Eyes flutter a magical tune
    Lips deliver love messages silently
    Locks cover her bosom elegantly
    Arms just ready to embrace
    Her body but a symbol of grace
    There she stands as a tree of love
    The moon watches her beauty from above
    She bears silver fruit as a silver tree
    Her body wrapped in moonlight gleam
    The sight of her dazzle is an amazing bliss
    The butterfly plants on her lips a kiss
    Slips she into a trance
    Was this deliberate or by chance?

    Open Doors

    When God closes one door He opens another
    Opportunities thus open further
    What wasn't meant for us hence gone
    Look not for opinions wrong
    Life isn't a sad story
    No reason to fret and worry
    Take one step at a time
    Cherish each moment sublime
    When Almighty is above what have you to fear
    Every moment He's is near
    He knows our heart 'cause He's the insider
    And forever our provider
    Hence worry not because when God closes one door
    He opens another

    Memories Never Die
    .....................................

    Memories never die
    Even if we try
    They leave an imprint
    In our hearts distinct

    Each time we walk down memory lane
    We feel the moments once again
    Sweet even more sweet
    Bitter ones never retreat

    Memories of our dear ones
    A precious asset sums
    Even after their long absence
    It makes the heart anxious

    The present is what we got to live
    For our dear ones pleasant moments leave
    For future let's create memories fond
    And live in memories even after we're gone

    I Bled Blue
    ..................

    I bled blue
    To ink a story true
    A girl so kind
    Who wasn't in her mind
    It was a cold night
    I inked with all my might
    To see her condition
    Her clothes were missing
    Four were the beast
    Who upon her did feast
    Left her on the streets
    And with laughter did retreat
    None were there to help
    No ears heard the yelp
    When half her life had gone
    Inspection asked what's wrong
    Her torn and tattered body
    Told the entire story
    Yet again and again she was shamed
    Media only to be famed
    Too long was the wait
    Help again was late
    After she left great were the talk
    And a beautiful candle walk
    As one truth we bury
    Up comes another story
    Again I bled blue
    To ink a story true.

    City: the universe ( here)

    Draped in Silence
    ..............................

    Draped in uttermost silence
    This time the city took a walk to check the imbalance

    As no voices were heard
    Nor chirping of birds

    Thought, I'll take a walk and see
    What the actual condition to be

    Awestruck and petrified
    To see human life collide

    How did this come to pass
    I've always given my best

    Saw homes without parents
    Kids crying for moments fervent

    The hands that treated
    Had to heaven retreated

    Families were tearful
    At the loss of dear ones fearful

    The sight of the disaster was terrifying
    The city turned numb silently sighing

    Turned to the Almighty with head bent
    Said, only You this calamity can end

    Risk it Anyway

    People may not appreciate the good work you do
    Risk it anyway
    Your kindness may be taken as weakness
    Risk it anyway
    People may not treat you as you do
    Do it anyway
    Your tears behind your smile may never be seen
    Smile anyway
    Ingratitude may be returned to you instead
    Be giving anyway
    The love in your eyes may never be seen
    Love anyway
    Your tears may never be wiped or comforted
    Be sympathetic anyway
    Your need may never be noticed
    Reach out to the needy anyway
    No listening ear to hear your cry
    Yet lend a listening ear anyway
    After all its between you and the Almighty
    So risk it anyway
