INT. BEDROOM – NIGHT
Taimur walks in slowly. He stands at a distance from Hasan.
You know. Ek zamana tha jb milky
way nazar ata tha
(You know there was a time when one could see the milky way.)
Puraney zamaney my ek dum tube
light ki tarah aasmaan roshan hota
(During old times, the sky would be as bright as a tube light.)
Thank you for the information?
Balkey wo jo bacho ki stories me
hota tha na k stars guide krte
they, wo isi lye k stars waqai raat
ko roshan krdete they
(Those bedtime stories which said stars would guide the way, that was so because the stars would brighten up the night)
To phir kuch yun hua k insan thori
off harkaten krne lage.
(Then the humans started acting strangely)
Matlab ye k technology develop krne lage
(Meaning they started developing technology)
And thats not good?
Han na! Ab dekho technology develop
hui to unho ne lights create krna
shuru ki ta k ghar roshan hon.
(Yeah well! See, once technology started developing, they created lights for the houses)
Exactly. Ta k hum dono yahan pe
kharey ho k baat kr saken.
(Exactly. Hence, we can sit here and talk)
Han zaroorat poori krne k lye ye
light bohot important hai. Magar jb
insaan is light ko for granted lene
laga to masla start hua.
(When in need, light is good. Taken for granted, however, the real issue starts)
wo light ko without use
intentionally khula chorne laga.
Itni lights ki waja se milky way
galaxy nazar ana band hogya.
(They started intentionally wasting light when not in use. Because of all the wasted light, the milky way became invisible)
Im guessing ye lecture mje baaten
sunane k lye tha? For your
information, ye ligt is lye on hai
k me yahan khara hu
(So I am guessing this lecture was for me. Dear brother, the light’s on because I am here.)
Han lekin wo washroom ki light to
useless on ti na. Mene abi band ki
(Yeah, but what about the bathroom light, I just switched it off)
Mene to nahi kholi light
(I didn’t open that)
To or kon khole ga? Sirf hum dono
hi to ghar pe hain or mene nahi
(Well, who else would? Its just us two in the house._
mje kia pata…
(How would I know?)
They hear a click. They turn towards the washroom and they see the light switched on. another click. The light switches off.
