Moon's Magic

Ramesh was very sad. He ate little and even did not do his homework. He wanted to talk to the stars that he saw at night. So strong was his wish that his whole life had got disturbed. His parents failed to make him happy.
One night when he was looking at the stars, he heard a voice.
"Is it a star talking to me?" he got excited.
But it was not a star, it was the moon.
"Ramesh, why are you so sad?" asked the moon.
"I want to talk to the stars."
"Why only stars, you can talk to me," said the moon.
"No, no I want to talk only to the stars," said Ramesh and started crying.
"Ok, ok," said the moon, "Let me tell you the reality."
"what reality?" he stopped crying.
"The reality that the stars that you see in the sky, might not be there."
"What do you mean!" He was surprised.
"Ramesh you know we able to see only when light from an object enters our eyes."
"Similarly, when the light from the stars reaches your eyes, you see them." The moon paused for a moment to let the idea sink in.
"What do want to say?" Ramesh was puzzled.
"Let me explain it to you with a supposition. Suppose an explosion takes place on a star at this moment and it stops shining. Would you able to see that explosion?"
"yes, why not?" he said amid an quickening of interest.
"No, my dear. The light of that explosion will reach you after thousands of years because the star is very far away."
Ramesh listened to this strange notion with rapt attention.
"So, what you are actually seeing might not be there." Moon took a deep breath.
"Does it mean that there might not be a single star up there and I will never come to know about it?" Ramesh's sharpened interest gave way to despair.
"No, no my dear, don't feel disheartened," moon said compassionately. "It's only a far-fetched possibility. I just wanted to make you understand that you should have dreams but shouldn't let dreams spoil our present life. Now get up and eat your dinner."
Ramesh got the point, smiled, bid goodbye to moon, and went to the dining room for his dinner
