"advesta sarvabhutanam
maitra karuna eva cha
nirmano nirahamkarah
samadukhhasukhah ksami" (Gita-12:13)
"samtustah satatam yogi
yatatma drdhanniscayah
mayy arpitamanobhuddhir
yo madbhaktah sa me priyah"(Gita-12:14)

He who hates no one, is friendly and compassionate to all, free from
thoughts of 'I' and 'mine', equal alike in joy and sorrow, ever forgiving (Gita-12:13)
Ever content, self controlled, of firm resolve, such is he,
having surrendered his mind and heart to me, the devotee dear to me (Gita-12:14)

For three hundred years, religion has been losing its territory continuously. First, it attempted to destroy science. It possessed the domains of the world near and far. Like science proves and adds to the facts, religions try to prove they are right. Religion is defensive and in the name of God, faith exists but far too long, we have been hating and fighting. Its time to tackle real issues and build a temples to tolerance, understanding and love. War is violence. Violence rear violence to crush humanity. Humans have possessed a nature to destruction losing the control of the mind as egoism surfaces up. Common people crave for peace and have raised concerns to spread the message but it’s in the air deep rooted with differentiates with greed, corruption, beliefs and their protests go unheard by the so-called saviours of the nation.It is utter failure as who created the world doesn’t matter. All matters is who governs with a chaos leadership quality!

Isn't this so true - exactly when we talk of peace; when two buses on 7 April were flagged for journey by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Pervez Musharraf who created such a historical moment with the bus between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad and the peace action begins. Now is the test trial of these very leaders to maintain peace. But,I hear President Musharraf and Dr. Wen Jao were signing a Defence Pact in Islamabad. Now, against whom is the Defence Pact visualized to be used? When the world has forgotten about SEATO and NATO, what was the need for a new Defence Pact in this part of Asia? Only the politicians know, anyways!
