Fighting for the Peace

Since time immortal all those who fought said they are Fighting for the Peace. Indian mythology is full of stories be it Sri Ram fighting Ravana or Sri Krishna with Kaurava they all said to have fought for the peace.

The same statement was given by President Obama while speaking on the occasion of accepting the Noble prize of Peace  in OSLO,Norway on 10th December 2009.President also quoted his two ideals  Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King  by saying that it is always not  possible to  follow the principles of non violence and therefore violence becomes a necessary evil to bring peace. The  video of speech delivered on this occassion is available at

Though, I am not qualified to comment on the statement but my observation has been that when Mrs. Gandhi instigated a fight with Pakistan in 1971 which gave birth to    Bangladesh or under her leadership  the first atomic test was performed   the argument remains the same .Even after 25 years , in 1998 When India performed the second atomic test ,for Peace America did put all kind of sanctions against India and not  agreeing with the  arguments made by then Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Bajpai for the reasons best known to them.

I am therefore compelled to understand that all fights are for peace only, beacuse after fight of any magnitude ( at least one of the fighter will be no more) there can only be peace .This surely means that if you  work for  non violence as practised  by Gandhi ji ,it shall bring some peace but ultimately there shall be violence as happened after partition of India .But if you fight for peace there shall be peace .

President Obama has understood this well and therefore despite being a hard follower of two non violence angels Mahatma Gandhi and Martin L King whose photo is always carried by him and has hanged it on wall too,he had courage to say that it is not possible to follow their principles always. So follow it as per convince of follow up.The day Noble for peace was announced by the committee ,the fight over the decision started the very same day, some said it was too early,while other expressed it as a premature decision but as it always happens after a fight there is peace therefore fight over the decision also brought peace to support President OBAMA to continue his "FIGHT FOR THE PEACE"

I am thankful to the Nobel prize committee for opening the eyes of the people who till now were practicing non violence for peace.I have also understood the reason for saying "  समरथ को नहीं दोस गुसाईं " by Poet Tulsi Das some 400 years ago possibly ,he knew that what ever shall be said by the powerful person or nation only  that shall become an ideal to follow.

Dear Ajay,
Thanks for fighting with the Peace.
It is in the very nature of a human being to resolve crucial issues or conflicting matters through means of fight or war.
it means nature wants us to follow her dictates.
God bless us with internal Peace and give us strength to fight for PEACE.
