Teacher : Past vs Present

a poem by Anoop Reddy P

An institution is a temple of knowledge,
it could be a school or a college.

From time immemorial
we consider “GURU” as GOD,
till time perennial
this will not be odd.

A “GURU” need not be physical in appearance
we learn the essence of life from experience,
active or passive may be the mode of learning
competition these days is luring the yearning.

What is learnt is not being implemented practically,
Why then this education? A question with a touch of philosophy.

This major system should change to a revolution,
my friends try hard for this SOLUTION.

Learn things with practical sense,
workout new things with an innovative lens.

Rat race for marks should be out of place,
insight into understanding should be accepted with grace.
