Here’s an evocative verse from a teacher, in Different Truths.
While teaching skills of communication at some university,
Came across a bevy of gems, whose teacher I was to be.
As they mastered skills of presentations, interviews, GD’s and CVs.
I got tutored in some amazing life lessons from these students of me:
To communicate, connect, and grow.
Each one of them a brand ambassador of some virtue, Dale Carnegie advocated in his “How to…” series.
Empathy, ease of learning, inquisitiveness, teamwork, and a dosage of humour, made their innocence glow.
If traits were transplanted in discontent – brewing, commercial units, named Schools.
No Pradyuman or Nirbhaya was breached.
Instead, groom the inherent goodness of a child.
And schools and homes to selflessly provide lessons in humanities along with science.
