No Encounter Is By Chance
Fate does not give up on people. We are the decision-makers, the ones who shape our own fate. As one looks back, they may notice experiences where they do things they thought they would never do, put up with things they said they would never tolerate, or even fall in love with someone they thought they would never love.

With every challenge overcome, we come closer to understanding our inner self. * * * A sufi went on a seven-day long journey with a young girl in order to help her find her life purpose. They did not bring anything but their faith in God with them. In this journey, they met amazing encounters and extrao...

Exit From Economics
"Introduction to Economics" is the first course that introduces you to the fundamentals of economic reasoning. It involves rationality, mathematics and experience. Today, the notion no longer seems to be convincing. Generally, economics revolves around a central concept called homo economicus which refers to a prototype of a rational, economic human being.

We are living in a world full of people who spend more than they earn, confuse needs with desires, "sacrifice their future happiness for familiar unhappiness". How did we become like this? When and why did the economics lose this rational human being? What ...
