Treasure Island

Subbaraman N V

(31st July 1941 / Karaikkudi - Tamilnadu- India)


Oh! Goddess of knowledge and wisdom!
Many born with me have no source
To pursue education with resource
Which I am blessed thanks to my parents
Who sacrifice all their money and comforts
To make me well read with quality
So that I may serve them and society!

Help me concentrate on my goal
In all sincerity with my heart and soul!
Knowledge is precious wisdom more
That help me locate what is core
In life with the guidance of my Master
Whom I revere as your Messenger!

    Fantastic. This is the prayer that has been going down from one generation to the other. It took me back to my own school days and I remembered the anecdotes my father told me about his own school days. Now here I am looking at my children's high school days! (Report) Reply

    A humble, ideal and sincere prayer of a student....with commitments to the society..very well written...ideal for every one to follow....I feel it is very difficult to compose prayers like this. Your capabilities are phenomenal Sir.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
