Self-written Poetry on teacher’s day-

जन्म लिया तब से हम कुछ सिख रहे है,

पाठ हमे न जाने कितने लोग पढ़ा रहे है।

पहला अक्षर बोलना माँ-बाप ने सिखाया,

तो शायद लिखना एक शिक्षक ने पढ़ाया,

बड़ो की इज़्ज़त करना दादा-दादी ने समझाया,

अन्न का अनादर न करना नाना-नानी ने बतलाया,

सब लोग में घुल-मिल जाना दोस्तों से हमे आया,

गिरने ठोकर खाने ने जिंदगी का सच सामने लाया,

स्कूल, कॉलेज के पाठ्यक्रम की अपनी हिस्सेदारी है,

आजकल तो गूगल देवता सबसे बड़े ज्ञानी है।

ये प्रकृति हमे जीवन जीना सीखा रही है,

परिवार की महत्ता हमे बतला रही है।

ऑनलाइन का दौर टेक्नोलॉजी समझ रहा है,

आने वाले युग का ट्रेलर दिखा रहा है।

बदलती ज़िंदगानी में आओ सबका आभार करे,

प्रभु से लेकर हर इक गुरु का मिलकर हम नमन करे।
