O Lord on this auspicious Teacher’s Day, 5th September,
Birth day of Dr. Radhakrishnan, the great philosopher,
May I pry to see Your glorious manifestation
In each and every student’s appearance and performance!
May I pray to hear Your sublime voice
May their thoughts, words and actions
Reflect Your grandeur and splendour!
O Father, I wish to feel Your divine presence and touch
By the presence and touch of my dear students.
I pray to see Your loveliness and loftiness
In the students’ run and race, fun and frolic,
And in their activeness and naughtiness.
O Supreme Father, my gratitude to Thee
Is fathomless, boundless and wordless
For You have enriched and elevated my life
With Thy greatest gift ---an ocean of students.
