Ekmek Arası Patates Kızartması

Daha çok küçüğüm, tam hatırlamıyorum ama 2000 yılı civarıydı galiba. Köyde ailemle yaşıyorum hala. Köyümüzde iki aile arasındaki kan davasını sona erdiren barış yemeği veriliyor. O aralar fırın ekmeği, patates kızartması vs. köyde yaşayan 7-8 yaşındaki bir çocuk için çok lüx sayılıyor tabii. Barış yemeğindeyim. Barış vesilesiyle çocuklara da ekmek arası patates kızartması veriliyor. Ben…

The Aim of My Life

No need for philosophy to answer this. I just want to learn about more and more things… I want to know everything  that I don’t know. Because this is the only thing I can do without an end in this world. All the other things have limits, boundaries, but there is no limit for knowing. …

Yabancı Dildeki Eserlerin Türkçe’ye Çevrilememesi Sorunu

Yabancı dildeki metinler ve kitaplar Türkçe’ye çevrilemiyor derken, çeviri girişimi yok anlamında söylemiyorum. Çeviriler haddinden fazla bir şekilde “piyasada istiflenip” duruyor.

Fishing in the Air

A few minutes ago I’ve watched a video in which a little sweet boy with his little fishhook catches an unfortunate fish. Watching this I remembered my own memory  at around age of 12 year-old. I was fishing in my small village located in Mesopotamia at the side of Tigris River. I realized that I…
