What is on the moon?

Take 1: Man creates the aeroplane, flies above the clouds -discovers clouds are water vapour and dust particles.

Take 2:Man climbs the Hindukush, Everest, Annapoorna and K2 - and Mt. Kailash - the Lord was not to be seen.  

Take 3:  Munnabhai MBBS - The Dean says - ' when you operate you dont think that it is a person- it is flesh and sinew- and that is what makes my hand steady while holding the scalpel'. 

Take 4: Neil Armstrong lands on the moon

Three takes - so what?  Heard of these stories that we were told as kids - and many more built around these...

Story 1:  Heavens are above the clouds

Story 2:  Lord Shiva lives in Mount Kailash

Story 3:  Your heart 'contains' dreams, hopes, love, hatred...

Story 4: Cow jumped over the moon, Angels live on the moon...

Compare Take 1 with Story 1, so on and so forth ...

... so is each story a myth?  

Man has checked on the clouds, there is no heaven.   Man has climbed the Mountains of the Himalayas so many times, Lord Shiva is missing.   And so many cardiac operations have happened, nobody has dug out a 'hope' ' love' 'hate' or 'dream' from the heart.  

What is above the clouds? What lies atop of Himalayas?   What  lies beneath the blood and tissue?  What is on the moon?

Niel Armstrong found craters, rocks et al on the surface of the moon.   Chandrayaan discovered water later. 

May be we have found water in the Moon and Mars.  May be microbes.  May be life.  With life,  may be hope and dreams.    And our grandparents will repeat the stories.   Stories seed dreams.  Dreams lead to discovery.   And the cycle goes on.

So believe me,  there are angels on that moon!!!
