I often wonder about this process of wishing and dreaming. Is this something that only humans can or animals also have these kind of thoughts? Anyway, for the purpose of this post, let’s see how we make our wishes. More often than not, they are given as an appeal to the gods in whom we may have faith and wait for them to be fulfilled.
Here’s a lady lighting incense at a Buddhist temple probably wishing for the well-being of her loved ones.
And here are the locks that we see on the bridges (I don’t know who started the trend) put there by couples who wish to “lock” their love forever and throw the key :).
And here are the wishes that people of the erstwhile East Germany had (now painted on an artistic graffiti wall).
It’s quite a coincidence that very recently I learnt (not yet completely though) the sentence formations for wishes and dreams in German. Oh yes, there is a lesson about that too in the curriculum! I don’t remember having been taught that in English or Hindi as a theme :-). But then nobody says German is an easy language to learn. I can only wish that I can learn it!
If the theme made you wish for more, then you can check out the thoughts of bloggers from across the world here.
