Following one’s dreams is like flying a kite, says Prayut

Junta chief General Prayut Chan-o-cha on Tuesday dabbled in metaphor to convey the importance of following one’s hopes and dreams after his affiliated party won the popular vote in the recent general election.

 

Speaking to a group of students visiting Government House on Tuesday, Prayut all of a sudden told the children that “placing hopes and dreams in the air is like letting a kite fly in the air”.

“We don’t know what it’s going to bring back,” Prayut said. “So, whatever you want, you do it for yourself, no matter what happens or does not happen, with or without a helping hand. Building castles in the air is like letting the kite fly. We don’t know where it will go or whether it will get stuck on some power pole.”

 

However, when reporters asked if it was his hope and dream to form the government, the PM denied, saying it was not his job as the current PM.

Haha It's the Thai equivalent of the American Dream.  "Know your place, stay in it, do as you're told and be thankful that I am here to destroy any ambitions you may have".  well they apparently still voted for him, so...............

No.

 

Chak (Tug) a kite is the euphemism.

 

Len (Play) waao (kite) is the term commonly used for flying a kite.

There's actually a song about flying a kite that all the Thai ladies will know called wing waao วิ่งว่าว.
