Ada has been talking about this book on a live broadcast on Hayat TV.
Now, wherever you are, stand for a moment and do something pleasant that you feel like doing. I am of the opinion that identity is a matter related with a persons performing actions; just like revealing the lie he tells to the people he loves. As you know, it is a great arrogance to say that a person shouldnt lie. A person may tell a lie without even being aware of it. One day, I will tell a more beautiful lie to you as well.
