A Teacher’s Tale

image

Engulfed by darkness. Reaching for light.

We never really know the essence of life unless we come close to it. So, how do we come close to it? Grown up in a perfectly pampered up environment, my life would essentially circle around a bunch of cool friends, mediocre lifestyle status, scoring good grades, gearing up for a professional course and basically having fun!

It was only when i finished school and stepped into the world with an unprepared mind for the black and white of the society did i really understand what it takes to be a strong person, to win and lose, to rise and fall, to love, to fail, to fight, to cry, to live and let live.

Owing to the unpredictability of life, i can say, i have seen a lot of it. Quite a Lot! And all of that has gone into the mix for the one and only ambition of my life. The only goal with which i get up everyday from bed. That gives my life it’s meaning.

 To touch lives.

This is what my journey of life is all about. A university topper in computer science chosen by one of India’s leading MNC gives up the lust of the top notch corporate life and goes to become a teacher. Yes, a T-E-A-C-H-E-R . Not that an inspiring story do I have. Just a common girl with uncommon dreams starts her career as a teacher. Plain and simple.
The reason I chose this profession was because I see a lot of things amiss in our societies. I do not target those high level extraordinary qualities of piety, it’s the very basic of emotions like compassion, honesty, equality and love that we devastatingly continuously are failing at. I don’t seek a revolutionary change nor do I intend to erase those huge social stigmas from society because I know I won’t be able to do so. But I want to build up a character in my students such that they know the basic difference between the right and the wrong. To love. To live a life on principles. To fight for truth. To fail with honesty and stand with pride. To be unbiased and never to lie.

I am teaching in Eastern Public School Bhopal. It’s the only IB school in my town. Currently the class teacher for grade 6, I must say I am having a great time. This gives me just the right opportunity of instilling not just academic concepts into their brains but to train my lovely boys and girls with the essence of life.

A bit of philosophical overdose?
May be yes. But that’s how I go and I feel happy each time when one of my students stand up for truth and refrain to lie.

Opening the window to Humanity.

Living a Dream

This whole week or probably a little more, had been one big time FUN. It was a cousin’s wedding. The pre and post wedding events kept me so occupied. Perhaps, leaving no time for any sleep. During this whole period, I understood something beautiful- The purity of this bond called  Marriage. It is enchanting to think for myself , getting into the same bond with someone,someday. My HERO. All of this made me summarise my feelings here.

I  dream of a day
The best day of my life.
Profoundly indulging my senses
For the most memorable day of my life.

When we will tie bonds of tender love
And caress the sweet laden memories.
The grandeur of your presence will suffice all my life.

My svelte existence clad in a beautiful red
Golden necklace adorning my petite neck.
Lips in light pink and fingers with pretty rings.
Long black hair shimmering as silk.

My palms decorated with henna.
Its color dark and defining.
Upto me elbow the design follows
My subsistence will always keep shining.

My eyes lowered
I’ll wait for you
To have you by my side
Rekindling my sentiments for you.

I promise to be your’s forever
My life in this world and hereafter.
I’ll be your soulmate
My undying love will be your shelter.

The curls of my hair bouncing around my back
My eyes in delirium
Will gaze at the softness of your commitment

Trinkets in my ears will dance with my moves
Red bangles melodiously calling you.
Multicolour their appearance
To add subtlety to my feelings

That day I will  tell you
How much I loved you.
That I veiled myself from every eye
For this day that my beauty is for you.

Illuminating my soul
For the King of My Dreams
I had never let my being into flaunt
For I am yours, and only your’s.

The chastity of my emotions
Will fuel our togetherness.
You will be my life
My soul, my love, my happiness.

I’ll be quiet
My eyes will speak.
I’ll love you sincerely
I’ll be true to your being.

Coverting myself in you
From the breaches of life.
You’ll be my wall
Protecting from all sides.

I think I know you
Vaguely from my dreams.
Destiny will make us meet someday
A heart throb would feel.

That day will be special
Bringing solemnity of our love
And Trueness of our beings
Two bodies, one soul to keep.

Hand in hand
Walking the path called Life.
We will build a nest of Love,call it home
Where cordiality shall reside.

So much I pondered of you
In long starry nights.
To watch the sky together
And feel our warmth.

To silently whisper
Cuddling the togetherness
You will utter
The passion of love.

All my dreams
Set for future.
When I find my man
A marvellous marriage to occur.

I foresee, a life with him
Who will make me complete.
Yes I am a dreamer
And I dream of a face unseen.

But I believe in the sanctity of Marriage
Showered upon with grace of God.
Welcoming an eternal relationship
Collecting blessings from the Almighty.

Unfound Love

image

Friends promised to stay
Unfulfilled, forgotten were their words I say.
But he will be their in my thick and thin,
He will be my rock forever to stay.

Defeated I have been by few,
Now i wait for him, to bring sunshine of love
And remove the misty dew.

Nothing would compare to his commitment,
His overwhelming presence,
His soothing words.
The scent of his love will fill my life,
Erasing my scars and all strifes.

Lamenting in dark nights,
When will u come?
To become my knight.
Take me far and kill my pain,
No more can I now bear the strain.

The moon, stars and sky will smile at us, 
In Flowery fragrant of love we will indulge.
My first true friend he will be
For my soulmate,  my strength will be in thee.      

We will hold hands forever,
Never to part, in love to shelter.
My strength will never falter,
Our love shall only prosper.

Our promises firm as the last verdict,
Life’s journey we will walk together.
Gliding across the many phases,
We will stay close,  until death chases.

Filling all voids with our vigorous love,
Never to repent, pain shall shove.
Implicit communication to be,
My eyes powered for the message of thee.

Lonesome is my every single day,
Little happiness comes to stay.
Though, not in reality have we met,
In your wait, my dreamland is all set.

I have faith in my Lord,
He will not fail my hope.
One day, I will meet him,
Love, love and love will fill the space.

Mornings will come with a delightful surprise,
From a beautiful dream to a charming reality.
The song of love we will sing together,
Dancing on our love tunes, memories we will gather.

Days turning into months, months to years,
No metric for my painful solitude.
Your face I have seen once in my dream,
Satiated , blissful I was with no seam.

Enough I have dreamt of you in my blue hours,
Come in my life and fill your color.
Calling with my heart, calling you loud,
My unfound love to be found.
