Those teachers who were by me for every thing big and small
Let me start with the one at kindergarten by the name of Mrs. Berger
If I am writing a poem today with good vocabulary, it is thanks to her..
Then I had a wonderful physical training teacher called Ms. Ila Sikdar
If I am disciplined today, and also punctual, it is again thanks to her.
Ms. C.V. Lakshmi is again one of those who you could never fool,
She was elderly, she was experienced , oh in those days,she really was cool.
Ms. Omana Verma, comes in tow, as she taught us all the figures
A math teacher she was, my eyes get wet when emotions for her endears
I thank Ms. Sulochana who was strictness and discipline personified.
Today she is no more, but I am glad about all those assignments well tried.
Then I grew up, got married and had a family
The teacher now shifted to a totally new city
The new teacher in two was my husband and my children
For each day is a challenge and I am a learner in my own den….
I learn from the world, I learn from nature, I learn every second
World would never have been a paradise if learning had come to an end…..
