Sacrifices the life

Like candles
To enlighten the life

Of thousands pupils

Practices and preaches


The endurance

Like the engulfed drops

In the shell

Spreads the smile
While even unplugged

Like the blooming petals
And adorns the life

As a beautiful bouquet

The day to remember it is
By every one –who
Taught the letters of alphabet

And it travels through till death
Now words are limited

To praise their services

Some remembers this day
With ‘Best Teacher Award’
Some receives the honors

From their pupils

Let us remember

Our teachers – who

Are behind our glorious life
Happy teachers Day
