A few days ago, my son (6 years old) and I were waiting in the car while my wife and daughter were in the store. A song came on the lyrics of which included a man singing to a woman describing her as being so beautiful that even the moon was envious of her.
This song is rendered beautifully in the Urdu language by one of the best singers ever to walk this planet; Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
Rather inquisitive by nature, my son asks me what the song is about and I give him the above stated synopsis. After a significant amount of thought, the little man shrugs his shoulders; shakes his head in disappointment and says, “I don’t get it.”
I simply smiled, ruffled his hair and said, “You will. Someday, you will.”
Another shrug of the little shoulders followed.
