– By Pooja Dey
When I entered into your world,
I felt the warmth of my mother’s womb;
With her eyes I saw the world beautiful;
You protected me being my shield.
And the day I was born,
I had the glance of your creation.
Voices I heard once were replaced with visions;
I grew up in hearts and laps.
I was unaware of my identity:
They gave me surname, caste and community;
I was a tender sapling of love,
They inculcated imperceptive of religion in me.
The destination of my thought was sky;
Class of society hindered me to fly.
Resources and money played in addition,
Tried to control my choice of dream.
To my mother who taught me humanity,
To love and live with integrity;
Only Knowledge, wisdom, and honesty
Led me above the clouds to infinity.
