…” In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look ata the sky at night…You, only you, will have stars that can laugh!”…” and when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have know me. You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me”…said the Little Prince.
This is the saddest chapter, it’s about the little Prince’s farewell. This farewell symbolizes the end of childhood that gives way to adulthood. Neither of them wanted to separate from the other but they had to do it to continue with the normal course of things. Bhujangasana opens and soothes the heart, provides a state of happiness that defeats depression. This was what they both needed!…
