Student Days


After joint prayers
We used to enter
In class rooms with smile on face
For knowledge and access

The teacher was receiving welcome note
”Good morning sir” with one voice to float
We will soon be knowing about his good mood
His face may reveal everything and be understood

He used be good and respectable figure
For us a real guide and good teacher
He was showing kindness with gesture
That was all we now remember

We were not well conversant
With the situation prevalent at that time
But we were listening to him attentively
And submitted with utmost faith and reality

We were all dreaming about future
He will speak loudly and make sure
“Do not run away in any circumstances”
“It needs your confidence and presence”

We realize now how correct he was
He will look at us and resume after little pause
He was so sure of his teaching
That each word was definitely reaching to us

We all were leaving classes in the evening
But with sure assurance of meeting in morning
That was the schedule for all of us
Those were nice days with full aspiration and trust
