My almost-five-year-old daughter asked me one day "Baba, what is zindagi?"

"Zindagi means life," I said. "

What is life?" she asked immediately.

"Life is....," I began and stopped. A five year old wouldn't understand it.

Sometimes, we ask big questions. But if the answer doesn't come, it is probably because we wouldn't be able to understand. We are still five years old.
