Wishing teacher on teacher's day 

isn't the real respect

Applying the lessons taught by them in real life is rare respect one can offer!

Touching the feet of elder 

isn't the real respect

But being their courage when they lose the capacity to stand on one 

is the real respect that rare of us offers!


Not arguing with your father 

isn't the real respect

But being patient enough to listen to his point when you are on a strong foot and independent in all aspects

is the real respect that rare of us offers!

Not calling your spouse with his name 

isn't the real respect

But being his strongest support when he calls out your name at his worsts

is real respect that rare of us offer!


Covering your head in front of your in-laws

isn't the real respect

But sharing the shelter with them to cover theirs in their 60s and 80s

is real respect that rare of us offer!

Going to Temple and offering him prayers 

isn't the real respect

But going out and offering food to hungry 

is real respect that rare of us offers!!
