                             Slow And Steady 

The Transformation  Occurs...............

Its Not Easy to Break An Old Habit 

And Neither Its

Easy to Form A New One . 

Slowly And Silently

Working on An idea That Forms 

In Ones Head

This Idea Can Be Instantly Rejected 


Can be Diligently

Worked Upon So That It Assumes 

A Form In Ones Head .

Well The Story Does Not End There 

It Needs To Be Put In Words 



Now Comes 

The Moment Of Judgement 

On Your Own Part .......             


Does Oneself Like The Picture Or Not ...

Will The Picture Be Acceptable To All ...

Will ThePicture Do You Good ....

Make You A Better Person....... 

Help Others Along The Way..... 

If The Anwers Are All Yes


Well Now Comes The Difficult Part 

Working Hard To

Make It Come All Alive 

Many Obstacles Will Come From Without ...... 

People Will Not like The Innitial Start , 

They Will Work Hard To Break Your Resolve , 

They Will Belittle , 

Will Make Fun , 

But The Whole Idea Is To Keep 

Working On Keep Your Resolve 

Do The Small Side Tracks That Help 

You On And Believe In The Gut Feeling 

Never Let The Other Voices 

Slow You Down 

Slowly And Steadily

All Barrers Are Broken 


The Light Shines Through .                                                                                       

                                 Loads Of Love And God Bless !

A Farewell Speech

                    30 years have flown by as I stand here for the last time to formally address you all madam Principal, fellow colleagues and my dear children.
                     It has been a happy educative time spent here giving my expertise, imparting knowledge and skills while you all learn and grow and thereby learning a lot from my young teachers present here.

                     I received ample guidance from my seniors present here and predecessors gone before me. I hope I gave useful insight selflessly and empathetically to all my colleagues to the best of my knowledge and ability through my time here.

                    When I joined the institution in the prime of my youth I was full of enthusiasm and looked forward to my teaching career. My journey took me through the highs and lows of teaching. Sometimes I was angry and strict sometimes happy and jovial but always ready to impart knowledge, teach, get the best out of every young child placed in our care. These seedlings we sow every year grow into beautiful little flowers  go out into the world as young responsible citizens are our proud and true treasures we accumulate over time.

                         Friends coming here every day imbibed virtues of regularity, patience, love and care I also learned a lot as I grew into a happy and responsible individual. I am truly grateful to the staff and management for giving me this opportunity of selfless growth . I Am Grateful for the blessing of the charge of The Gurdwara Sahib And The Revered Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji . It was an added honour for me to recite The vaak Sahib every morning and I am truly grateful to Waheguruji for added abundance Of His Blessings.     In My learning I may have made many mistakes unknowingly for which I humbly and with folded hands ask for forgiveness. Here I also take the opportunity to ask for forgiveness of any conduct that did not meet with the eyes of my dear colleagues.

                                       The young children here have never let me feel that I have grown old I still feel energetic as I was ten years ago and it is because of the young blood around us and if I go by statistics I would have taught approximately 9000 students over these 30 years and learned much more from them than what I would have taught them. Learning to be grateful for each new day that brought a new challenge and overcoming it. Like Wallis Simpson Said “ For A gallant spirit there can never be defeat "

                         Now that I leave school I look back in fond memory at all the interesting wonderful times we all had welcoming honoured and  distinguished guests at different school functions, science projects we made and the various picnics we had together but I also look forward to a fresh new start towards a second inning. Maybe I might myself become a student and learn what I wanted to all these years and did not get the chance because of the time crunch.

                     Life keeps moving and with my retirement here I look forward to another inning and I would quote 

Goethe “what you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” 

Another of my favourite quote is by Robert Louis Stevenson – “ Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant “.   

                                                                              Thank You !

                      I + MAGIC + NATION

                I Create Magic For A Nation

IMAGINATION -- A Gift To Te Human Mind Of The Almighty God To Create magic .

Humans Are Made In The True Image Of The Powerful Almighty God And Have The Power To Create Magic .

The Almighty Through The Vast Creative Imagination Created The Whole Natural Cosmos. The Vast Universe , The Innumerable Galaxies , The Absolute Black Holes , Nearing Us The Multitude Of Planets , The Sun , The Moon , The Beautiful Earth We Dwell On . Every Planet Was Blessed In Ways Yet Unknown To Us Mankind , But Yes The Earth Was Blessed With Bounties Of Nature The Best God Could Figure . The Sun Was Placed At The Wonderfully Right Distance So That Its Heat And Warmth Gave The Right Temperature To Nurture Various And Wondrous Life Forms 84 Millions In All According To The Sages . The Moon Lovingly Placed At A Distance Where It Reflected The Sun's Light In A Passionately Silvery Glow  To All The Earth's Darker Nightly Side So That The Earthlings Trying To Complete Their Unfinished Chores Of The Day Could Be Helped As The Sun Dare Not Pamper The Whole Of The World On The Earth In One Go So The Movement Of The Earth Was Created And Every Day The Sun Rose In The East Giving Its light Calling in Words Day To Nurture And Becoming Alive And Kicking Of Life Forms  And Set In The West Of Each Man Made Nation .The Setting of The Sun Caused Night A Wondrous Wonder With The Blanket Of Darkness Spread Over It So That After Hard Working Kicking Life The Life Forms Needed Rest And Sleep . The Air We All Lived On Needed To To Be Absorbed And Cleaned By The Bounteous Trees In Nature  Wow What A Cosmos And What Creation The Air That Was Foul And Harmful For Beings And Animals  Was  Food for The Greens So lavishly  Spread Out All Over Giving The Earth Its Beautiful Colour. What A Great Work Of Art And Magic By Nature . All This Was Almighty's Imagination At Work . 

The Mighty Rivers That Flow From The Heights Of The  Mountains  Through Their Artifice Colour The Hills And The Plains To The Shores Of The Expanse Of The Deep Huge Oceans With Their Flows Are All The Magic Of Almighty And Human Beings Being The Image Of Almighty have A Great Mind That Thrives On The Divine's Power Of Imagination . As The Life Forms On Earth Developed And As Time Passed On The Development Of Human Form Happened Mind Started To Work Overtime . Firstly Small Needs Started To Arise . Eating As Hunger Was There , Saving Oneself From Other Species So Survival Became Paramount And So The Human Thought Started To Thrive . The Desires Also Took Ground And Started To Sprout These Thrifty Desires Gave Birth To Imagination's Creative Instinct . All Material Available On Earth Was Helpful In Creating Things Which became helpful in Satiating The Desire. All materials Given By Nature's Bounty were Further Made Use Of To Create Weapons, Homes, For Saving Ourselves From Animals, Cold, Rain And Heat . Growing Grains , Vegetables, Fruits For Food As And How The Need Arose . 

The Imagination Worked Harder And Divine Guidance Was Received To Create And Make The World A Better Place For Mankind's Survival . Small And Loving Changes Beautified Earth All The More And God Was Happy With The Small God His Own Creation Till Man Through Overworking His Imagination Started To Plunder And Destroy Without Thinking And Weighing The Pros And Cons Loosing Awareness Completely  And Slowly Going Into Complete And Denial . As And When The Greed , Hunger, Ego, Increased The Power It Started To Degrade The Human Mind . Imagination Gave Man An Intense Desire To Live On And On Where As Nature And God Loves To Create , Destroy And Recreate . Man Loved to Create , Accumulate And Keep All His Creation For Eternity . Instead Of Natural Decay That Keeps Everything In Order And Regeneration ,Our Possessions Destruct Accumulate And Leave Our Mother Earth Burdened . 

The Earth Revels In Its Unimaginable Changes Brings Out Varied Aspects Of Bounties And Beauty But Human Beings In Selfishness Brings Blots On The Mother Nature Through Its Imaginary Creations. There Is A Need To Wake Up To Work In Positive Cognizance With Nature . We Need To Revere  Respect Admire Love The Creation's laudable Imagination Provides Us With And Use It Frugally So That The Balance Is Not Destroyed . Imagination Needs  To Work To Create And Amply Beautify What Almighty Created . I Would Love To Say That All Human Imagination Is Almighty At Work. The Positivity Is Thy Creation And The Negativity Is Also Thine For He Is Present In All Life Forms So Also In Humans. 

The Completeness Of All Matter Living And Non Is Almighty . A Little by little Dispersed In All For That Is What Is Enjoyed Most . The Wings Of Imagination Are the Thoughts That Circle in Human Mind For Only Human mind Has The Power To Assimilate Access  Then Project And Ultimately Working On The Thoughts Creates Which Is A Blessing To The Human Mind. The Sages, The Artists, The Writers, The Doctors, The Scientists Are All Close To Their Own Divine Self And Receive Inspiration From The Almighty's Loving Care To Create A better World For One And All The Only Detriment Would Be Greed That Takes One  Away From The Positive Divine Order Of Sharing and Caring. 

All Materials Accumulated Are left In This World For Nothing I Must Emphasise On NOTHING Can Be Carried Into The Other Realms. The Body We So Lovingly Pamper Is Left Here For There Is Only Place For The Soul Energy To Travel Through Realms Body Materials All Remain Here On This Earth To Degenerate For Souls Serve The Purpose Of Almighty . The Bud That Flowers on The Plant Opens To Share Fragrance And Beauty To All Who See And Observe It Quietly Wither's Away Becoming Food For The Soil of The Same Plant The Frugality Of Almighty's Creative Zeal.

Lets All Create Magic Of Love Of Abundance For One and All . food Amply Provided By Nature But Lack Of Will And Empathy Lets It Rot  Greed Makes It Rot And Hunger Strikes Its Blow On People. With Love And Compassion It Can Reach Every Mouth . Overcome Greed And Succumb To Sharing While Still living Not Thinking Our Children Would Do Us Proud After We Are Gone. The Hoarding Of stuffs Has No Meaning But Is A Sign Of Thriftiness. Sharing With Young Ones With Love So As To Give Them The Opportunity To Grow To Magic. 

Remembering The Almighty Creator's Magic Being Grateful For The Unending Bounties And Creating Magic Daily Into Our Own Lives . Living In Happiness Love  Light And Peace !

                                      God Bless !

I Saw A Tree Stripped Naked

Ripped Off Its Tiny Greens

It Stood With Arms Wide Open 

Each Arm Invitingly Moving

Few Shaken Earthen Leaves

All Ready To Fall With The Breeze

Tall Sturdy And Majestically

With Endless Strength And Beauty

It Stood Patiently Waiting 

For The Time To Pass The Show

Sunlight Gave It A Golden Glow 

And Set My Mind In Revere Go

Life Has Its Different Moods For Sure

Sometimes You're Alive And Aglow

Sometimes Autumn Strikes Its Blow 

Sparkle In Eyes Sometimes Grow

Sometimes Empty Of Every Show

Learning And Growing Oh So Slow

Remembrance Of The Tree All Grown

With The Leaves All Hues Of Green 

Grateful For Every Season's Show 

Birds Would Build Their Nests So Sure

The Rest It Needed From The Spring's Growth

It Made Me Humble For The Moods Of Life

Grateful For The Colours Of Life

Sometimes Bright And Full Of Zest 

Forgetting The Creator In All The Best

The Times Of Pain Were A Reminding Test

Loving Reminder Of What We'd Forget

To Be Thankful To The Almighty In Every Quest

Who Loved Us Beings And Carried Us Every Step .

The Day Dawns With The Rays Of The Sun

It Begins To Warm With Its Rise 

It Starts To Wane After Its Peak Is Reached 

Giving Way To Silvery Brighter Star 

Day After Day The Miracle Repeats 

From Eternity It Begins To Reach Eternity 

Its Power To Enrich Is Unendingly Pure 

Mother Earth Brightens Up With Spectacular Hues 

Dew Drops Surround As The Darkness Spreads

Brings Cooling Effects Of The Stars Above

Giving the Earth Its Refreshing Respite

For Its Most Needed After The Rosy Glow 

The Resting Revives And The Mother's Aglow

To Reap The Wonders Of The Mighty Show

The Astounding Miracles Are Sure To Grow

With Every Peak Of The Morning Sun 

The Blessing It Is For All Of Life For Sure

For The Cold Coldness Shrouds

With Dark Black Blanket Around

Shivering and Shuddering The Mother Recounts

The Warm Loving Caress Of The Sunny Dawn .

From Years Eternal The New Year Day Dawns
On The First Day Of Baisakh In Our Own Lands
Winter's Gone With The Glowing Bright Yellow Sun

The Wheat Kissed Golden By The Warming Sun
All Ready To Be Reaped And Cut For Feeds
Farmers Leaping Dancing to The Beat Of Drums
Maidens Laughing Dancing In Colourful Gait
Hard Work's Reaped By Farmers And Sons
The Prosperity Shines With The Reaping Spray
The Bowl Is Full With The Country's Food

Its Baisakhi Today And A Grateful Day
Thankful That The God Has Been Great
540 Years Ago There Came A Saint
Nanak Taught Us To Love And Share
He Led The Masses With His Open Care
Sharing His Pure Spirit With Ten In All
The Gurus Were The Spirit Of  Endurance Dear
They Practised And Taught All They Said
Adhering To The Only One Almighty Will
Believing And Showing Absolute Surrender
Guru Gobind Rai The Tenth In Spirit
Showed Love For One And All Around
He Gave His Father's Life For Lives Of Pundits
For The Turks All Wanted Every Indian To Be Muslim  
The Castes And The Creeds And The Religions All Past
The Fear In The Eyes Of  Every One That Was Alive
He Called for All Of  Mankind On Auspicious Together
80,000 Strong Gathered At Anandpur's Kiratpur Grandeur
Where The Guru Asked For Heads Of Men That Were Present
With The Sword In Hand The Guru Was Mad
Was The Chanting In The Congregation Held
Men Fled Away With Families Altogether
The Faith Took Its Hold And One Stood Up
Saying Complete Surrender To Guru's Wish
There Stood Daya Ram With Hands Folded Together
Guru Beheaded  His Head Without Any Hinder
Giving Up The Most Precious Of Possessions
Four More Rose Up  One By One At Guru's Will
Their Heads Held In  Blissful Complete Surrender
Dharam Dass , Himmat Rai, Mukham Chand And Sahib Chand
Were The Blessed Ones Held  On Great Heights
For They Gave Up The Fear Of The Loss of Life
The Love That The Guru Had For These Fearless Forms
Was Even Greater Than What He Had For His Own Four Sons
He Called Them Together His  Five Pure  Beloved  Singh's
The Ones  When Together  Were The Guru Of  Guru
He Gave Them Sweet Amborsian Baptism
Calling Them Khalsa With The Purity Of Almighty
The Guru Became The Follower Of The Mighty Five
By Drinking The Sweet Amborsia From Those Pure Five
For They Had Given Their All Without Batting Their Eye
The Birth Of The Lions And Princess  In India
To Fight Alongside The Guru Without Any Fear
Guru Fought The Turk Army With Careless Abandon
Loosing His Young Four  Sons Along Side Many
The Khalsa Was Born And The Fear Was Lost
In The Purity Of Form As  Lord Almighty Did Want
 On The Day Of  Baisakhi  The 13th April Of 1699.
The Chant Of Waheguruji Da Khalsa Waheguruji Di Fateh
Made The Hearts All Soar And The Gait So Sure ......!

Jago Sarkar jago

                   जागो    सरकार    जागो 

इकिस्वी  सदी  की  सरकार  जागो

हिंदुस्तान  की    सरकार    जागो

फर्क  क्या  है  आज  और  इतिहास  में

औरंगजेब  अँगरेज़  और  आप  में

तब  भी  इंसान  दबता था  दबाता था

आज  भी इंसान  भूख  से  मर जाता है

आप की  नीयत   और  नीतियां  है  कैसी

गरीब  किसान  कड़ी  मेहनत से  आपनी

 खाद्य अनाज  ढेर  उगता  है खून पसीने से

केवल  आप  के  कर्मचारी के  आलस के मारे

सड़क और रेल की पटरी के किनारे सड़  जाता है

भूख   से  बेहाल  है  बच्चे   बूढ़े   और   जवान

चूहे  ढेर  खाते और बर्बाद करते  है  अनाज

बच्चा  पैदा  होता तो  भी  रोता  है  इंसान

क्योकि जन्म परिणाम लेने को होता है परेशां

पढने  जाने  के लिए  भी चलना पड़े  लाचार

क्योकि स्कूल  जाने के लिए लाओ  इनाम

अथा मेहनत से  पढ़ लिख  कर  हुवे  नोजवान

नोकरी  पाने के लिए भी लाओ ढेर  गाँधी लाल

छटपटा   रहा  है  कड़ी  जंजीरों में हर  इंसान

छूटी  हंसी  हर किसी का मन  हुआ  उदास

रोते  हुए पैदा होता है  इस देश  आज  इंसान

और रोते रोते  करे  इस जहाँ  में आव्हान

और  बूढ़े  होने  पर  जब वह करे  प्रस्थान

तो  भी  सरकारी  अफसर  मांगे  इनाम

देना  है  जो  परिवार को मरण परिणाम

जागो  इंसान  जागो सरकारी इंसान

धरम युद्ध ना हो  परिणाम  जागो  इंसान !

स्वतंन्त्र  भारत  का  है  नव निर्माण

भ्रसटाचार  धसा  रग  रग  में

आम  आदमी मरता  हर पल में

भरे  भण्डार  सरकारी  है

फिर भी सब ओर  त्राहि त्राहि है

घर  बैठे  कर  आराम से  किसको

गरीब  की  गुहार  सुनाई देती है

रोते   दिल और   नम  आँखे

किसको  दिखाई  देती  हैं

बहार  निकल कर तो  देखो

आँख खोल कर  तो  देखो

आदमी आज  सड़क पर मरता है

निकल जाते  हैं  आँख चुरा कर सब

और  भूल  जाते  है  पल भर में

फर्क  किसको  पड़ता  है  आज

चंद रुपये में  तन और मन बिकता है

खुद  को  पता लगे जब  आपने पर बने

जो  इस देश में आसानी से होता नहीं

रुपये  के  गद्दे पर  मदहोश पड़े

जन  के  सेवक  होश  में  आओ

गरेबान  में  झांको  और  आँख दोढ़ाओ

घर के  बहार  भी  आप के  अपने  है

टिकटकी लगाये  शून्य आँखों  से

इंतज़ार  कर कर  थक न  जाये

धरये  कहीं  खों  न  बैठें  होश  में आओ

चंडी  का कहीं  आव्हान  हो  न  जाये

बजुर्ग  तो  सब  थक  हार   चुके

अपना  वक्त  सह कर  बिता  चुके

बच्चों  को  बीमार  देश  दे  चले

पढने  लिखने का अर्थ  है  क्या

जो बीमारी  जान  भी  भगा  न  सके

जागो  जवानों कमान  संभालो

खुद उठो  बजूर्गो  का  दामन थामो

देश में गंदगी से  बीमारी  फैली है

उसे  साफ़ कर  स्वस्थ बनाओ

रात की नींद दिन का चैन गवावो

देश में  भ्रस्टाचार  की दलदल को

गर्म जोशी की  लो  से  सुखाना  होगा

हर आदमी  को  सम्मान दिलाना होगा

शासनकारों को अपना  स्थान  याद दिलाना होगा

तिजोरियों में  सडती लक्ष्मी को बचाना होगा

विदेशों में  अपना  पड़ा धन लाना  होगा

उनकी  एश पर लगाम लगा कम कर

अपनों  की भूख को जल्द  मिटाना  होगा

जागो सरकार  में बैठे मंत्री जी जागो

 इस जहाँ  से  तुमको  भी  है  जाना जानो

 ढलती उम्र में कब  उसका  बुलावा आये

जवाब देने को जब काएनात बुलाये

क्या कहोगे  कितनो को तडपा के हो  आये

क्या कहोगे कितनो को तडपा  के हो आये

जागो सरकार जागो भारत की सरकार जागो ...........!
