Everyone’s smiles and laughter are not the same. When someone falls big, they make small jokes. When nations descend on God’s land and start walking, the earth is divided by its poisonous laughter and civilizations are absorbed in it. Falstaff laughs. When he puts it on, Room Room smiles. When infants are happy, they go to their mother’s lap with a bang. Meanwhile, Mona Liza says that she has been smiling for centuries and a smile is also the one that slightly bends Gautam Buddha’s lips after Nirvana. She lowers her gaze. (Tazak Yousefi (Case)
