"Life Ahead" by Anil Deshapande, Mumbai.



Where the mind is without fear
Education springs only there
Follows by itself the intelligence
Let not occur any negligence
In understanding problem, crisis or pain
Keeping away confusion, conflict or sin
Hate, grudge, comparison, envy and greed
Better avoid and sow ‘Love, Love’ seed.

Removing fear be the aim of education
Not just info taking, exam and competition
Instilling listening and spirit of inquiry
Everyone is unique by this theory
Creativity, Sensitivity, Character is thus build
To deal with the life is the result yield.

I, Me, My is a detrimental pride
Lust, longing, ambition, never on them stride
Remove the patina of wistful ME
Discover inner YOU and so is HE.
