The teacher was teaching physics concepts,
He explained the speed, distance and time aspects.
An innocent child raised his hand,
From the spectacle the teacher looked as asked to stand.
Sir can you answer all queries of science,
Teacher smiled, yes ask, I am fine.
How many hours I will take to reach the Heaven,
I want to meet my mother, who left when I was Seven.
There was a pin drop silence in the room,
Astonished teacher was all so gloom.
Changing the topic he taught digestion,
Again the child raised a question.
Sir, if I get only once to eat,
For how many hours, hunger I will beat?
The teacher eyes were all so misty,
He wiped his sweat and drink water posing thirsty.
Now he deviated his lessons on moral science,
Sir, when I speak the truth, why I am fined?
The class bell rang the teacher walked out,
Feeling guilty of not clearing the doubt.
Next day he brought a lunch box for the child,
Ho told him to eat, child your hunger will be mild.
Smiling the boy ate every piece from the Tiffin,
Sir you have delayed me to lie in the coffin.
Holding his hand, he took him to principal’s office,
Filling his school fees, an idea novice.
He became his mother and told him not to worry,
Heaven is far, on the earth I will carry.
Such teachers are rare to find,
They are amalgamated with knowledge and sharp mind.
With his help he learnt the signature,
Which became his autograph as a special feature…
