this is some thought that has been dumped at the back of my mind for quite some time. and that thought is concerned about “three”. you read it right. this post is about the number 3, that i think is unique in some ways.
i’ve always noticed how many (not all) best friends are attracted together in a group of three. lets start with the famous trio from the Harry Potter series. they were a gang of three. then back in my school, i was a part of a gang of six and i was more close to two of them and the other three were more close to each other than with us. now in college i’m again close to two girls than other girls. there are so many other people i know who are a part of a closely knit gang of three.
even in so many religions around the world three has a special place. in Hinduism there are trimurthis (three gods) and tridevis ( three goddesses ), in Christianity the holy trinity , in Buddhism the three jewels, and list goes on.
but at the same time many people consider this very number unlucky. Chinese consider it good but Vietnamese consider it unlucky. whether three is god or bad has been debated in many fields ranging from religion to photography and science. 😐
what ever be the result of these debates, here is my mom advising me not to venture out in a group of three or the job intended will not be accomplished. 😐 😉
