Oh, Teacher! If You One Day Become My Student!

Oh! Teacher, Oh! Teacher,
If you, one day, become my student,
and I become your Teacher.
Before I teach you
I would bring the magic stick
to turn difficult lesson
too easy and systematic.

I would go from the road of America
to the kingdom of Athena
to change the pedagogy
to bring the Heuristic
project of John Dewy.
Before advising one social moral quality.
I would advice you to visualize one humanity.

To live
and let live
in harmony
explaining the bases of
Economy, sociology, philosophy,
biology and Psychology,
of education for Perfection.

I would believe you before you believe
impossible potentiality.
I would push you before you push
To cross the limit without difficulty.
I would put you in on the vessel
and set off to sail
to make an unknown Voyage,
till you get the light of horizon
return is forbidden,
for you.

    I would enjoy dining with you one evening Abdul. It would be a most entertaining and enlightening meal, I am sure.
    Next time I am in West Bengal I will be sure to look you up.
