In fall 2011 when I was witnessing the rise of Occupy Wall Street in New York City, one of the recurring questions in my mind was this: When would Turkey have its own #Occupy moment? “We are the 99%” slogan had spread from the Zuccotti Park to other cities in the U.S, taking its inspiration from square occupations in Egypt, Greece, Spain and Britain. Some of those movements fizzled out, and some of them kept on. But Turks had not jumped on that Occupy bandwagon for a really long…Continue

It’s a well-known fact that a country develops when its people develop. Development, in a broad sense, is the increase of the literacy rate in a country. Indians can be proud to recollect that one of our finest presidents, and one of the greatest minds of this era, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, came from a poor family. That is how a country grows: When you see small children walking long distances to school because there is no…Continue

HILLEL AND THE TAXMAN
Hillel the Elder’s fame rests on his use of logic for deriving Talmudic law and this talent also relates to his three questions about Jewish moral behavior (see: ”Avot” or “Ethics of the Fathers”, Chapter 1 verse 14).

All are important, but difficult to reconcile the inherent tensions among them.
