Have you ever wondered whether anyone would ever like you? Did you ever imagine anyone having an attraction towards you? Most probably you didn’t.

Have you ever imagined how nice it would be if no one was poor? Did a thought ever occur to you that if the government printed a lot of money, there would be enough money for everyone?

Well, that seems like a good idea, but it will never work.

Often, we wonder how the bridges are built above the deep rivers and what would happen if the bridge falls. How do they build such a heavy piece of engineering with only a few pillars to support it?
