Unselfish souls are called by different names,
some call them generous , some call preachers,
While others call them the god gifted angels,
I call them with modesty, ' my holy teachers'.
You are not hypocrites flaunting knowledge,
but a pathway for a million tiny feet,
you are a strong hand for the confused faces,
for whom you are a life saving treat.
You give hope to the ones who stumble,
guide the blind folded hopeless eyes,
you are not just an enlightening encycopedia
but a terminator to a thousand cries .
You identify the capacity of useless fellow,
you give your all to bring back self confidence,
to you on this auspicious day of joy
I convey thanks for your perseverance.

Teachers are a breed all of their own.
A strong will to help others.
A pathway for a million tiny feet...this is good.
