#14 Guru


I dedicate this self composed poem to all the teachers who have always influenced and inspired me and teachers are the only ones who provide us the right direction to move on in life. They do motivate us. We are in need of their blessings and good wishes. They are like light houses in the midst of ocean. Their importance in life cannot be neglected. Through the prose Kabir  Das had tried to throw light on the importance of teachers in life of a student…….

 गुरु गोविंद दोनों खड़े, काके लागूं पाँय

    बलिहारी गुरु आपनो, गोविंद दियो मिलाय



     Give me light
           Show me the sight,
     Oh Guru, I pray
           Take me away from darkness
     And guide me the correct way.

     Under your blessings,
           I can prosper.
     Without your help,
           I can’t get what I desire.

     Realized my true self,
           Through your motivation.
     I can reach my goal,
           Without any hesitation.

     Using your ideas,
           I got a direction.
     Now, I bear the courage,
           To excel with perfection.

     You are an epitome
           Of knowledge and power.
     Always make me feel,
           Awaken, enlighten and inspired.

  2. Dear Sweta,
    This was a very nice post :).I liked it really very much. A teacher plays an important and significant role in the life of a student. There's a really nice quote by Aristotle,
    “Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.”

    1. I feel delighted to hear such comments ....
      Thanks for reading this one...

  3. Swati, you write very well. I simply want to tell you while writing poem, leave every line fragmented but never loose rhythm. You have great talent, god bless you.

    1. Sure, i'll keep that in mind while composing...
      Thank You!!!
