This World Philosophy day, question what is around you, discuss your opinions with others and debate if you do not agree to ultimately grow into the best version of yourself.#NidhikaBahl #LifeCoach #WorldPhilosophyDay pic.twitter.com/wMFOBDpAKx— Nidhika Bahl (@nidhikabahl) November 21, 2019

According to Plato, a philosopher king is a ruler who possesses both a love of wisdom, as well as intelligence, reliability, and a willingness to live a simple life. Such are the rulers of his utopian city Kallipolis.— Safin Pramanik (@philosafin) November 21, 2019
