Happy Children’s Day

Childhood, the essence, and the kastoori
We search for all our life,
Once we grow up and never get it back.
Lies within us, hidden in one deep hidden corner.
Lies breathing forever its last breaths,
Waiting to be revived, resuscitated
To be brought alive, by us,
With a little spark of innocence and a simple smile.

    I forgot yesterday was children’s day. At least we can on this powerful matter once in a year which is the foundation of human civilization. This is most important day and should never be ignored. Since you are a teacher you take much care of your student , it shows so. Thank you so much for your outstanding job.
