A Beacon of Light

I was floundering in the dark

Lost in the myriad of chores

Which engulf the house-wife.

A beacon of light beckoned

A change of life emanated.

I was grilled and tested time and again.

At times with composure,

Most often than not.

A trial of strength the life unfolded,

A few mistaken steps & a few admonitions,

I can never forget

The softer virtues

That lay hidden behind the stern facade,

You believed in me

Led me from darkness to light.\

  1. What a wonderful description of a charismatic lady called Dr Urmi Sampat. I was fortunate to have done my bachelors in education from HJ where she was the lady in charge. She is an epitome of grace and dynamism. For those who don’t know her , I would like to add that Dr Sampat always lead by example.My personal journey was remarkable as I was told certain traits about myself which I had never discovered. She believed in me and made me believe in myself and that is exactly what I am passing on to my pupils as an educator. More power to you Madam.
