It’s that time of the year again!

It’s that time of the year again

When it all began

In hazy roasting summer

They trained us to become a teacher

Teacher leader change maker

Whatever you say

To improve the education system on the way

I joined the fellowship.

It is that that time of the year again

When the word ‘teach’ struck very late

But “for India” did actually captivate.

I entered the journey of transformation

Put up the charts and made a long vision

Only to realize this is not how it is done.

When I entered the school the first day

Ravindranath Tagore PCB as it claim

Met the kids at places all around

I felt like stiffer alone on the ground

All my learned tactics seemed to drown

Those noises almost made me unsound

But at this time of the year again

I know all these noises will hound around,

In my life for a long time.

This is that time of the year again

Where my mind is confused again but this time

Not to take the road less traveled by

But to leave the footsteps behind that chime to come back.

It is that time of the year again

Where reflection is unable to find answers

About the split worlds, about equity

The smile on the face of the kid

And answers they ask about equality.

The movement for the unrealistic vision

To bring ‘all’ and ‘excellent’ at equilibrium

Where I know to attain one, other has to be sacrificed.

But still in the journey of the easy or the right

I have found my light.
