ROLE OF SCIENCES FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT – TODAY AND TOMORROW

What exactly do peace and development refer to?

Peace in today’s world can very well be described as a sort of abstract utopian concept longed for, ie a common goal and state of rest. This is clearly contradicted and humiliated in today’s world with the ongoing thirst and hunger for power, territory, and capital. At the same time, development refers to a long-drawn process which can contribute towards creating growth, positive change, or simply an improvement in the physical, mental or social surroundings of any human being.

So now the crucial question which comes into mind is, “where exactly does science fit into this complex demographic?”. Science, whose nature is yet to be known and harnessed, its power unmatched, put into such a dangerous and volatile situation.

Limiting the capabilities of science to plainly its subjective attributes- physics, chemistry, biology etc. is an injustice to the core of the subject. Its scope includes the likes of social, economic, and environmental science, which are increasingly being incorporated into our daily lives and can be said to bring about tangible positive changes. For peace, science provides the greatest boon in today’s disease-stricken world in the form of medicines. Even in today’s highly sensitive virus-stricken environment, countries all over the world are able to share and discuss their individual discoveries, findings and hence contribute towards improving the world situation as a whole and henceforth try to bring about a state of rest and normalcy for all. Science furthermore opens up various new horizons for career opportunities and hence improves the employment conditions, further enabling stability to exist that can eventually contribute towards peace within a country or area. It also creates the environment needed for learning and education.

This is a beneficial effect because by improving education in a country, we improve the society for future generations. Hence, it can inculcate within them an early habit of staying in a state of peace and maintaining peace which will only be helpful in building society. Suppose I were to illustrate this argument further using an example. In that case, we can educate even five children who have been born and brought up in dire conditions; they might grow up and learn to sustain themselves by good means, in contrast to today’s scenario where many of the poverty-stricken, unemployed people, especially the youth is turning to crime or even war as seen in the northern parts of our very own country. These are the parts where the resources are so scarce and underdeveloped that the people have no choice but to try and survive of anything, desperate and needy for minimum sustenance.

Science hence if not directly, indirectly, can bring out a sure-shot habit of peace.

While at the same time, if we were to talk about the direct implications of science on bringing about peace, a prominent successful example necessary to include would be the current dealings and proceedings of the honest attempt to foster harmony between the war-stricken nations and people – the Israelis and the Palestinians.

The conflict between these two has been raging on since 1948 imply after the modern Jewish state was newly founded. It is not as though attempts haven’t been made to bring peace in these countries. on several occasions, there have been attempts to find common ground to arrive at a consensus to achieve peace and stability for peoples of both sides. These efforts even included endeavours to promote interaction, collaboration and peace-building between the two groups, but somehow always ended in hostility. There was no tangible change seen until 2002 when the IPSO, the Israeli Palestinian science organisation, was launched to bring together scientists from both sides to pursue joint projects.

The grants issued under the program require the consensus and partnership of both the Israelis and the Palestinians. Following its mission statement, the IPSO proposes to establish a model of infrastructure that promotes, creates and sustains development educations and, most importantly, the collaboration between the communities through the universal language of science using innovative projects and initiatives. Scientific research endeavours involving people working together as equal partners would produce practical results and would likewise engender personal trust and friendship between people living in the two communities. Hence improve the conditions required to attain common goals and further peace by enabling the parties to arrive at a common ground beneficial for growth and support for both.

Surprising too is the lack of awareness of institutions such as IPSO and its vision for promoting peace through collaborative interactions between Palestinian and Israeli scientists. The workings of the IPSO can be used as an important model to base future organisations and missions upon in such similar conflict-prone areas, which will eventually benefit from common associations applicable to both concerned parties with a common independent goal and indirect implication on peace.

If I was to talk about science and development, there is no doubt that these two factors go hand in hand. Without science, there can virtually be no development. In fact, one of the largest and effective strategies devised in the last century of sustainable development, which includes the idea of using resource judiciously, is the very component of earth and economic sciences.

Sustainable development in the past century has proven to be an advantageous strategy in terms of its terms for use and mission statements which include using only for our own needs and preserving enough for the coming generations for them to undergo development with exactly the same freedom present generations have been able to.

Furthermore, suppose we were to analyse the implications of the actions of ancient civilisations and colonies. They have constantly been developing themselves and their organisations using new techniques and methodology as the basis of trials and errors, which can be deduced as the first scientific experiments seen in modern civilisations. Whether it includes discoveries in the forms of new materials, technologies, etc. that have found practical application in various areas of production of economic goods that have become in common use by people, they have increased prosperity and made life easier.

This may have worked for them progressively and effectively, however recently, the norms and uses of the world with the increasing global warming, greenhouse gas emissions, increased risk of various climatic cataclysms, increased environmental pollution, declining resources of raw materials, arable land and clean water, the need to develop renewable sources of energy, electromobility, recycling have created the need to develop business processes according to the model of sustainable pro-ecological development and the green economy concept which are also constantly evolving. We can say that the two do go directly hand in hand.

If I were to compare the 3, science, peace and development, to an object, it would be to the branches of a tree called society. These three factors cannot grow and flourish in sanctity without the support of society. Furthermore, all contribute equally in some way or the other to the overall growth of the tree by bearing fruits etc. which implicates directly on society to maintain it economically and keep it standing, which is exactly the role science needs to fulfil in today’s changing world.

The Cost of being Poor!

We are ending an era of consciousness that has been very destructive. Now it’s deteriorating by the plethora of means and entering into an accession process which is nothing but a global shift of consciousness into a far more heart-centred, a balance to move back into our heart centred awareness and humanity previously got disconnected from the hearts and soul at such as exponential level. Thus, at such a rapid exponential speed.

They were bringing in a lot of unconsciousness in so many ways. The complexity and enormity of the situation gate crushed each one into their cocoons sent back home. Everything shut down the lane. The 3rd and partially 2nd tier of the pyramid caused massive suffering. The farmers of the country, the factory’s daily wages, rickshaw pullers, three-wheelers income, everything triggered from top to bottom Since they are uneducated and victimized in a broader spectrum.

The contagious and vicious cycle of COVID 19 has triggered the efficiency-oriented competitive world of ambitious struggle. It has halted the entire humanity. Alike an absolute mutation, a total transformation of the whole structure and the nature of the human dimension will take place in quarantine, and the output would be the essential, productive us! The crisis is vast, but we are humans (We imprint our roots largely, and nothing is complicated for us to tackle out). COVID is a phase that’ll way by soon, a transition that’ll transform the human tic mindset. At the threshold of the third millennium, it’s time for the inner revolution to arise.

All outer revolution has precipitated. It’s fundamentally shattered. For instance, beings need new psychology to understand themselves—the pauperism, in contrast, to the pandemics it way beyond money and cyclic life. Poverty is stamped/imprinted to beings mindset. If one believes and inclines to the conscious/aware self, it’ll be eventually rich or poor. Poverty is fleshed far from the vicious convolutive cycle of pauperism. We’re supposed to devise a strategy new for psychology to understand oneself, connect to the roots to the depth and respond constructively. “The Catholic ic idea is a relief for the poor”.

The semantics of buddha comply: there is no need for any poverty in the world. Poverty is man-created, and it is in our hands to destroy poverty. But all the religions have emphasized relief for the poor. But relief for the poor is not charity. It does not love”. Wealth can give you all one can purchase in life. Wealth can buy almost everything aspect those spiritual values love, compassion, enlightenment, freedom, but these few things are exceptions, and exception always proves the rule. All the religions have been against life. They were bound to be against money, which is a natural result.

Life needs money, comforts and worldly desires of satisfaction. Metaphorically and sweeping generalizations, the beauty of literature, music, poetry is imbibed by the so-called poor. The “POORS eyes the landscape of vision and display of life”. During the grey shades of corona followed by quarantine. It’s time to showcase the unventured being’s dimension. On that sketchier note, no man is no only man. No women are no only women, both women and man is both man and women. One of the most remarkable insights ever attained. Life is a spirit, not a marathon. We’re all diagonalized in the parallel universe. The tip of the iceberg is that life is a mysterious vicious path to redemption and displays a quest for inspiration for one and all. “RETURNING TO THE SOURCE “WE WANT TO REALIZE THE TRUTH BUT CAN’T LIVE WITH IT. BECAUSE KNOWING THE REALITY OF THE TRUTH IS FAR EASY THAN LIVING IN IT!!!! You are an ordinary existence.

Raise the ordinary to the extraordinary. Start living and stop becoming. Losing time, energy, patience isn’t my forte. This acquiring state would never halt. Cherish the relish of the iota of originality. We’re born ordinary, just like everything in the universe. Whatever you conceive is all that you perceive.

My vision is of a rebel, of a man in the quest to seek the essential self, authentic self and a reimagination of oneself, chucking its greedy excitement of worldly affairs. Thus, in a nutshell, days shall flip from dusk to dawn squirm with textures of existence.

You’re the most significant insights ever attained. Giving a sanitized version of the topic, I’ll quote it: To rebel is to be revolutionary.

If today was the last day of my life, what I am going to do today?

This famous Steve Job’s question is one of the most outstanding questions ever asked. “If today was the last day of my life, would I do what I am about to do today?” Not many of us may have an answer to this million-dollar question. We are so busy in everyday life that we forget that our main aim is to simplify our lives. We are so occupied in our profession that we forget to devote time to what we love, our family, our friends, and ourselves.

No one knows how much time they have left on this planet. So do the thing you fear, and the fear will disappear. In modern lives, this fear is called risk. If you aim to enjoy life rather than making money, you have already taken the biggest and the best risk. Many are so desperate to make money that they forget about their families, aging parents, young kids, loving neighbors, and their developing interests.

No one on the deathbed will ever regret that they took risks at a particular point in life. Instead, it is better to take risks, for you don’t know when your life ends. It is better than going and doing what you fear instead of thinking about what would have happened if you faced the fear. To live a great life, you have to take risks; calculated risks.

This is what the question asks, whether you will regret the chances you have taken or those you didn’t take. Without daring, there is no success. If you succeed after you dare, well and good. But if otherwise, you will have gained the experience. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, said that the one thing one might regret is not trying.

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. The best way to answer the doubts is to do the things you doubt. You will get all the answers. This is the mantra for overcoming your fears. The limitations you have made for yourself will become the chains that will prevent you from being the ultimate person you were born to be.

You never know when is your fateful day, so you need to stop procrastination and start an action. You need not differentiate between work and enjoyment; instead, make your work the delight. Your family, your home, and your soul love you. You will never regret devoting time to them.

Live life every day as if it was your last day. You are born for a reason. Make sure you do justice to yourself. Don’t let the resource in you go waste. Lastly, don’t just exist; live.

After deep thought, I ask you whether you have the answer to this brilliant question? If yes, you are on the right path; if no, you can always be.

यह विद्यार्थी अपार संभावनाओं और असीमित प्रतिभाओं के बीच स्वरूप होते हैं।जो आगे चलकर भविष्य में किसी भी राष्ट्र का चाहमुखी विकास करने में अपनी सक्रिय भागीदारी निभा सकते हैं। और उस राष्ट्र को पूरे विश्व में एक अलग ही पहचान दिलाने व आत्मनिर्भर भारत बनाने में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभा सकते है।

विद्यार्थी और विद्यार्थी जीवन

विद्यार्थी जीवन में समय होता है जब कोई बच्चा व युवा गजब के आत्मविश्वास उत्साह,ऊर्जा और जोश से भरा रहता है।और उनके दिमाग में प्रतिदिन नए-नए विचार जन्म लेते हैं।नई-नई योजनाएं आकार लेने लगती हैं।असंभव को संभव कर दिखाने का जज्बा इनके अंदर समाया रहता है यही वह समय होता है जब विद्यार्थियों को एक सही मार्गदर्शन,एक सच्चे अर्थों में प्रेरक या मार्गदर्शन की जरूरत होती है। जो उनके अंदर की अपार क्षमता और संभावनाओं और असीमित ऊर्जा को एक सही दिशा दे सके अगर उस समय उनका सही तरह से मार्गदर्शन किया जाए तो देश की प्रगति के मार्ग पर चलने और विश्व में एक अलग पहचान बनाने से कोई नहीं रोक सकता।

विद्यार्थी जीवन,जीवन का सबसे सर्वश्रेष्ठ समय होता है जहां पर व्यक्ति न सिर्फ अपने सुनहरे भविष्य की नींव अपने कठिन परिश्रम से रखता है।बल्कि राष्ट्र के निर्माण में अपना योगदान की जिम्मेदारी भी तय करता है इसी समय वह जीवन में आने वाले संघर्षों,उतार-चढ़ाव और जीवन की बारीकियों तथा समाज के अन्य क्षेत्रों के बारे में जानने का प्रयास शुरू करते हैं। हमारे देश के विद्यार्थियों के मजबूत कंधों पर ही आत्मनिर्भर भारत का सपना टिका है और यह उन्हीं के मजबूत इरादों से फलेगा व फूलेगा भी।

हर देश के असली पूंजी छात्र और युवा होते हैं जो राष्ट्र को अन्य पूंजियों से भर देने का साहस रखते हैं ।और विश्व पलट पर अपने देश को आर्थिक, समाजिक,बौद्धिक,धार्मिक आध्यात्मिक रूप से एक शानदार पहचान दिलाने में मददगार होते हैं।भारत में भी विद्यार्थी वर्ग की आबादी कुल राष्ट्रीय आबादी का एक बड़ा हिस्सा है। जो भविष्य के जिम्मेदार नागरिक बनेंगे।आजादी के 70 वर्षों बाद भी भारत शिक्षा के क्षेत्र में काफी पीछे है।भारत में 14 साल तक के बच्चों के लिए “शिक्षा का अधिकार कानून” बनाया गया है।

आत्मनिर्भर भारत,राष्ट्रीय विकास में छात्रों की भूमिका

किसी भी राष्ट्र की प्रगति के लिए वहां के नागरिकों को शिक्षित होना अनिवार्य/अति आवश्यक है।जब हम अपने बच्चों को शिक्षित करते हैं तो हम राष्ट्र के निर्माण में अपनी भागीदारी निभाते हैं क्योंकि यही बच्चे आगे चलकर देश को एक सही दिशा और दशा दे सकते हैं।अगर हम अपने देश के बच्चों को अशिक्षित रखेंगे तो हमारा देश कभी भी तरक्की नहीं कर सकता है विद्यार्थी का कर्तव्य है कि वह अपनी शिक्षा का उपयोग अपने समाज अपने देश की तरक्की के सर्वांगीण विकास के लिए करें छात्रों के अंदर असीमित प्रतिभा और उर्जा होती है इसलिए वह समाज में व्याप्त अनेक बुराइयों जैसे भ्रष्टाचार,सामाजिक असमानता लिंग भेद, अन्याय,दमन शोषण, दहेज प्रथा,कन्या भूण हत्या,उग्रवाद,आतंकवाद आदि के खिलाफ एक मजबूत अभियान छेड़ कर उसे समूल जड़ से नष्ट कर सकते हैं।छात्र आंदोलन के आगे तो बड़ी बड़ी राजनीतिक शक्तियां भी झुकने को मजबूर हो जाती हैं ।अपने विचारों के और ऊर्जा से वो राष्ट्र निर्माण में आने वाली हर बाधा को दूर कर,विकास के पहिए को तेजी से घुमा सकते हैं।छात्र सरकार द्वारा चलाए जाने वाले राष्ट्रीय स्तर के अभियानों को बड़ी तेजी में सफलता पूर्वक चला सकते हैं ।लोगों के अंदर इन अभियानों के प्रति जागरूकता पैदा कर सकते हैं। कोई भी अभियान छात्रों के माध्यम से सफलतापूर्वक चलाया जा सकता है। अगर छात्रों को पहले से प्रशिक्षण दिया जाए तो, वह किसी भी राष्ट्रीय आपदा के वक्त महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभा सकते हैं।जरूरत है तो उनकी क्षमताओं का सही उपयोग करना उनका सही मार्गदर्शन करना।

उपसंहार

विद्यार्थी जीवन में ही व्यक्ति के अंदर अच्छे संस्कारों के आदर्श मूल्यों को स्थापित करना आवश्यक है।क्योंकि अपने देश के सम्मान में गौरव के लिए अपनी जान कुर्बान करने का ज्जबा इनके दिलों में जलता है और देश का सर्वागीण राष्ट्रीय विकास कर भारत को एक आत्मनिर्भर भारत बनाने का सपना इन्हीं के दिमाग से होकर गुजरता है।

What is it that Angers you? or Inspires, Irritates, Pleases you?

Not many people in this world neither are the ones they claim to be nor do they follow something that they might tell others to do. To think of one thing that angers me the most, I could go on writing for a couple of things, but well, for starters, hypocrisy or ‘pretense’, as we commonly use, comes for me at first in the top tier system.


Many languages are existing. People speak in English, but People talk in French. People speak in Spanish, and then some people talk in hypocrisy, by which I mean people talk to show off their fake high standards. Witnessing people being pretentious infuriates me. The real question is, why do people pretend and not do. Maybe the answer to this lies in that they try to be others, want social acceptance, or show off their high moral standards. Of course, the society we live in is the one wherein we can find a pretty good number of hypocrites because everyone aims to deserve appreciation for high standards and end up doing so. This thing is just the opposite of living a simple natural life in the same way as what the actors do with their films’ characters. Maybe understanding or resonating hypocrisy with the different characters or the roles played by an actor helps. Also, people who struggle to show these high standards end up establishing double standards, which is again the opposite of what it means to have a unique standard for each one of us. The essence of having one proper exceptional standard for yourself, which you abide by, is lost.
Now coming over to what irritates me is the marital quarreling in front of the children. Isn’t it ironic that some parents who refrain from making love in front of their children because of the sole reason that their kids might not flourish well end up fighting in front of them?


Just give it a thought. I have been thinking about it for a long time. For those who have already thought something like this earlier, it might not be astonishing or resenting. For those who are just realizing it now, on a scale of 10, how much does this thought irritates you?


Cummings and his colleagues, in their book, have revealed that such children who witness these fights develop behavioral problems at home and school. Some children can also become troubled, anxious, or hopeless. They also recorded the statement of a child who witnessed such a marital fight- “I could give up anything to un-see my parents’ fight.”


However, my past performance is good or bad, best or worst, okay or not okay, has always inspired me. A bad performance in the past has inspired me to perform something unique, and a fantastic account in the past has inspired me to achieve something more memorable. What happens is that when I perform well or poorly, there is an instant tendency to do a bit better than before. There is a tendency to take the line in the graph high, no matter by what length. For me, honestly, a half-inch also works every time. Many other things around inspire me, but what could be more than your efforts to become the best version of yourself?
There are some things in life which you wish to have. A wish is so powerful that you want it to get fulfilled or sometimes experience it or still alternatively. You love to have that pleasing effect of your desire getting fulfilled, but sometimes, it’s not possible or even necessary that all of these get fulfilled. You manage to get only a few things done. So, for items that are not possible, simply imagining them pleases me. Just imagining things- what I wish for or what I long for as if they are happening or existing makes me happy. In my opinion, imagining things is very forceful and effective, and it pleases me so that even sometimes, witnessing things occurring in real life cannot. In a few instances, I cannot equate the joy of imagination with something else’s fun. To me, feeling pleased is being happy, both physically and mentally. And on this same note, the creativity of things fits right for me. It is spiritual. It is intoxicating. Most importantly, it boosts the feel-good hormones inside my body.


I hope that I can control my anger whenever I meet a hypocritical person. I hope that parents, especially in our culture, show maturity when fighting in front of their children. I also always expect that I can do better in everything I do because this is my main inspiration. Last but not least, I hope that imagination of things continues to please me because it is the easiest and the most feasible way to make you happy in seconds! Well, at least for me, it works in copious amounts.
