I haven't written for a few days,because I wanted first of all to think about my diary. It's an odd idea for someone like me to keep a diary; not only because i have never never done so before, but because I have never done so before ,but because it seems to me that neither I- nor for that matter anyone else- will be interested in the unbosoming of a thirteen -year -old schoolgirl. Still , what does that matter? I want to write, but more than that, I want to bring out all kinds of things that lie buried deep in my heart." Anne Frank.

As indicated by Aristotle, the polis, or Greek city-state, is the most elevated type of political affiliation. Simply by being a resident of a polis can an individual completely seek after an existence of good quality, which is the ultimate objective of human life. Since one can just accomplish this objective through political affiliation, Aristotle reasons that "man is a political creature." As well as shielding private property and censuring free enterprise, Aristotle famously views the foundation of subjection as important to the activities of society. Assessing and reprimanding different constitutions and established hypotheses, Aristotle presumes that no current city or hypothesis is great. He recognizes urban communities with their constitutions and arranges six various types of urban communities, three great and three awful. The three great sorts are politeia, or an established government; nobility; and authority.
Siddhartha is a novel by Hermann Hesse that deals with the spiritual journey of a boy known as Siddhartha from the Indian subcontinent during the time of Lord Buddha.
In a very simple prose, Hesse has conveyed a very profound message for all seekers. A brahmin boy follows his heart and goes through various lives to finally understand what it means to be enlightened. He experiences life as a pious brahmin, a Samana, a rich merchant, a lover and an ordinary ferryman, to a father. Neither a practitioner nor a devotee, neither meditating nor reciting, Siddhartha comes to blend in with the world, resonating with the rhythms of nature, bending the reader's ear down to hear answers from the river.
