There is a famous nursery rhyme "Twinkle Twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are". This describes the beauty of the night sky and the human curiosity about those faraway shining objects.
The slangy sentence "Khatle padi Aakash manyu" will be easily understood by villagers sleeping one with nature. To some extent an urbanite enjoying dreams on terrace will also understand those words. But a person sleeping enclosed in this cozy room understands only the designs of the blankets.
