Beyond the shantytownish Kustepe, there appears Istanbul’s one of the major business districts…

A professor of sociology was looking at the view below and asking how can one impose an order here?…

Beyond the hilly Tarlabaşı, there comes Taksim. Can you detect the church in the midst of buildings?

    If a philosopher was looking at the views above instead of a sociologist, and contemplating whether it is possible to impose an order and how, s/he would have thought: “In the beginning there was Chaos”

    In the beginning there was Chaos; an undifferentiated situation where there was no difference between night and day, between cold and hot; where there was absolutely no shape, no pattern; where nothing worked…

    Yet order was imposed to Chaos…or order came into existence out of Chaos…

    Will it be foolish to hope order can be given to districts like above? Afterall order was imposed to Chaos…or order came into existence out of Chaos…So the odds shouldn’t be that much unlikely!:-)
