Remembering fondly my teachers
On this day
As I walk decades back
To pay tribute in a humble way.
Our Principal Ms. Latha Mam
Was as strict as her position demanded
We used to pretend to be scared of her
Though comments at the back would later shower
Our first and foremost teacher, Ms. D'souza Teacher
Short in stature but very kind in nature
The first teacher who taught us to write A B C D
A very sweet and adorable lady was she.
Our Marathi Teacher Ms.Athalye Teacher
Tiny and frail was her structure
She used to come, read the entire chapter
None in the class would pay heed to her
Instead we used to make fun and get buried in laughter.
Our Geography Teacher, Ms. Bhagwat teacher
Tall and stout was her personality
A serious look she had
Though often she would laugh and joke
A kind of sleepy lecture for all folk
Our English & History Teacher, Ms.Vijaya Teacher
Short and plump with a loud voice
Would always notice me and my friend talking
And tell us 'get out of the class'
Outside the class we would giggle more
From the class at us she would again roar!
Our Hindi Teacher, Ms Seema Teacher
Middle aged Maharashtrian lady
Hindi she would speak less and Marathi more
Had only one favourite student whom she would always adore!
Our Maths & Sci Teacher, Ms. Manisha Teacher
Curly hair, very fair, was good looking and cool
Was liked by mostly all in the school
Her teachings were also best and interesting too
Our Drawing & Craft Teacher, Ms. Dabke Teacher
Taught us to make items out of paper and clay
Drawing too was learnt by us to some extent
A period meant for some leisure and enjoyment!
The picture that I have drawn above of all teachers
Are not to make fun of them
Instead I from the bottom of my heart salute and respect them
For bearing us, For imparting good education and Nourishing our Career
By watering our childish roots and standing by us like a strong stem.
I wish all my teachers and to all those who have been 'gurus' in my life A HAPPY TEACHERS DAY.
