Moonlight and Valentino


लोगों की नादानी पर हँसी आती है ,
जब वोह अजीब सी बातें करते हैं,
चाँदनी मेरे पास बैठे चमक रही है,
और आसमान पर एक गोले को चाँद समझ रहे हैं........

Logon ki naadani paar hansi aati hai
jab woh ajeeb si baatein karte hain
Chandni mere paas baithe chamak rahi hai
Aur aasaman par ek gole ko chaand samajh rahe hain.....


They can unscrew the stars,
roll up the sky,
and put it on a truck...
Without her this world means nothing to me........

They can turn off the sunlight I so love -
and do you you know why I love it?
Because the sun illuminates her so beautifully.
They can take away everything:
furniture, houses, sand, wind,
frogs,ripe watermelons, evenings,
May, June, July,
basil, bees, the sea...

P.S: Pics taken by me in Rhode Island.
English quote taken from Roberto Benigni's Tiger and the Snow.
Hindi quote? Guess who wrote it :-)
