Please could you ...

... tell me why i had the urge to cut down a light post with an axe a few days ago?

I know the answer, do you?

You laugh -
Courts
Take quickly,
Return slowly.

It's late you say,
We both stand up,
An Arab doctor, a Jewish singer,
Hug and go.

From the direction of the mountain
All is normal,
Good October
Is about to begin.

(Amir Lev)

אתה צוחק -
בתי המשפט
לוקחים מהר,
מחזירים לאט.

מאוחר אתה אומר,
שנינו קמים,
רופא ערבי, זמר יהודי,
מתחבקים והולכים.

מכיוון ההר
הכל רגיל,
אוקטובר הטוב
עומד להתחיל

(עמיר לב)

Are there SO many Israelis in Goa?

'Cuz Hebrew doesn't look too much like Devanagari.
