टीचर बनाती मुझे आत्मविश्वासी

टीचर होती एक परी

सिखाती हमको चीज़ नई ।

कभी सुनाती एक कविता

कभी सुनाती एक कहानी ।

करे कभी जो हम शैतानी

कान पकड़े , याद आय नानी ।

अच्छे काम पर मिले शाबासी

टीचर बनाती मुझे आत्मविश्वासी ।

टीचर होती एक परी

सिखाती हमको चीज़ नई ।

They guide us

They support us

They inspire us

They teach us

Today is the day to thank them and say ‘Happy Teachers' Day’.

—अजय सिंघ देवल, कक्षा VII, सलोनि इंटरनेशनल एकेडमी स्कूल, चाक चरणवास

Ode to the teachers at school by Ajay Dewal


So amazing to read today
करे कभी जो हम शैतानी
कान पकड़े , याद आय नानी ।
Not possible where I live now, though it was the norm when I was young.

Best of luck Ajay ... hope your ears are not twisted too often!
