Life begins being taught
How to brush or how to eat
When to sleep or how to greet
How to count and how to measure
What gives pain and what brings pleasure
What to do and what to avoid
what makes complete and what is devoid
As we grow we learn more from many sources
From teachers, professors, elders and media discourses
Our learning grows manifold
By imitating and by what we are told
When we are overwhelmed with information
We ought to read more to have a differentiation
Between right and wrong, good and bad, false from truth
Alas! we stop reading at this stage of transition from youth
We accede to and accept what is norm
We lose our identity, integrity and our form
We ought to know where we tread
As our actions depend upon
What is taught and read.
