How we feel an emotion?
and how does a country express it?
Every country, every people, has a way at looking at things and expressing them.
The same situation can be seen and more importantly felt differently by different people, different communities.
Proverbs give us a very acute insight of a people's viewpoint and correctly indicate things to which they give importance.
Like the French say:
Les proverbes sont la sagesse d'un pays
Its translation may be: Wisdom of a country can be seen through its proverbs.
However proverbs can't be literally translated. They have a more figurative and imaginative expression.
Lets take for example the French proverb: Loin des yeux, loin du coeur
Its literal translation may be: out of sight, out of heart
However, the equivalent English proverb does not talk of "heart" but of "mind" as the English proverb says: Out of sight, out of mind.
We have tried to bring this out in the slide show that you see above. The two proverbs make two different visuals.

The challenge is
Find a French expression, find its equivalent (and not its translation) in English or even better if you find it in your own vernacular Indian language.
Next step is to prepare one/two visual(s) depicting the two proverbs.
You may choose to draw, paint, use digital tools etc.
