Universal Translator

On yet another bus journey I heard a Japanese man and woman chatting behind me. Though I couldn't understand what they were saying, I could understand their laughter. I thought to myself how laughter sounds similar in any language. Their laughter was so infectious I was also smiling.

When I go behind all the human beliefs and drama, what's left is infinite smiles and laughter.

Laughter is my universal translator that enables me to understand everyone any time and anywhere.
