How they segregate !

To a law student
 they preach that a gulf exists
 between lawman and the layman

 To an aspiring doctor
 They preach how to treat a patient
 And, what stands between them and him.

 To a budding politician
 they teach the art of political science
 and how to lure innocent people for votes.

 To an engineer
 they show how logics and technicalities
 help them to stand apart.

 To a budding management student
 they teach how to manipulate simple things
that may be done with ease.

 To finance person
 they teach how to translate everything to monetary terms
 and bully other in the name of “Checks and balances”

 To an insurer
 they teach how to magnify the “Risk factor”
 And capitalize the fear in humans.

 Million Thanks to Almighty God
 We are poets and have no such institutions to preach us
 and are proud that we are still pure and untouched.
