THE WAR- A Positive Outlook Towards The War

Since childhood, I have read a sentence and it always helps me to understand everything that every coin has two sides like good, bad, right and wrong, so if there is war then it can not be the only definition of evil There will also be a good part of the war. And after reading the book of Krishna and why he taught Arjuna to fight, how can anyone God teach to fight someone, he can do all things perfect and peaceful without the war, but why did he not do it? ? So surely there will be some hidden and excellent teaching or doctrine which became clear after reading this book and it is great and it has completely explained to me why war is important. There is a most important rule of nature The way we all know is “change.” There should be changes everywhere and with everything in the rules, policies and with the peoples or thoughts.

The entire structure of our life is held together by the conflict, survival of its opposites –and war is a part of the suffering , tension that is life. And those who think that war is totally harmful and destructive are wrong; their vision is fragmentary, myopic. If we try to understand the course of development that man and his civilization have followed, we will realize that war plays the largest share in its growth. All of man’s modern affluence, backed by scientific inventions and high technology –indeed all his achievements –basically owe their existence to war. In fact, war creates such a state of tension in the mind of man and presents such challenges, that our dormant energies are shaken to their roots and, as a result, they awaken and act. We can afford to be lazy and lethargic in times of peace, but moments of war are quite different.

War provokes our dynamism. Confronted with extraordinary challenges, our sleeping energies have to awaken and assert themselves. That is why, during a war, we function as extraordinary people; we simply cease to be the ordinary people that we are. Confronted with the challenge of war, man’s brain begins to function at its highest level and capacity. In times of war man’s intelligence takes a great leap forward, one it would ordinarily take centuries to make. Many people think that if Krishna had prevented the war of Mahabharata, India would have attained to great affluence, she would have touched high peaks of growth and greatness. But the truth is just the opposite. If we had had a few more people of Krishna’s caliber and had fought more wars like the Mahabharata, we would have been at the pinnacle of our growth today.

About five thousand years have passed since the Mahabharata, and for these five thousand years we have not fought a single major war. The wars we have had since then were baby wars in comparison with that epic war of the Kurukshetra. They have been quite petty and insignificant. Indeed it would be wrong to even call them wars, they were petty fights and skirmishes. Had we only fought some major wars we would be the richest and most advanced country on this planet today. But our present state of affairs is just the opposite: we are at the bottom of the ladder. The countries that fought great wars are at the pinnacle of development and prosperity today. At the end of the First World War people thought Germany was destroyed, debilitated for good. But in just twenty years, in the Second World War, Germany emerged as an infinitely more powerful country than the Germany of the First World War. No one could have even dreamed this country could fight another war after she was so badly beaten in the first. Seemingly, there was no possibility for Germany to go to war for hundreds of years. But just in twenty years time the miracle happened, and Germany emerged as a giant world power. Why? –because with will and vigor this country utilized the energies released by the First World War. With the conclusion of the Second World War it seemed that there might be no more wars in the world. But, so soon, the powers that fought it are ready for a much deadlier and dreadful war than the last. And the two countries –Germany and Japan –that suffered the worst destruction and defeat in the last war have emerged, amazingly, as two of the most affluent countries in the world. Who can say, after visiting today’s Japan, that only twenty years ago atom bombs fell on this country? Of course, after visiting present-day India, one could say that this country has been subjected to recurring atomic bombardments. One look at our wretched state can make one think that, down the ages, we have been through unending destruction brought about by war after war. The Mahabharata is not responsible for India’s degradation and misery. The long line of teachers that came in the shadow of that war were all against war, and they used the Mahabharata to further their anti-war stance. Pointing to that great war they said, “What a terrible war! What appalling violence! No, no more of such wars! No more of such bloodshed!” It was unfortunate we failed to produce a line of people of the caliber of Krishna and also failed to fight more Mahabharatas.

We do not say that we have to fight every day but all things should be the limit and I know that India is a very peaceful country, we have never attacked the first on any other country. We always help and support others, Many of India’s soldiers die in the peace mission of the world, but today whatever is happening with India, through Pakistan, it is actually worst, especially because of Pakistan in Kashmir. There is a lot of suffering, at this time we are going through big unrest and loss. Every day we are losing our soldiers and most important our peace, we have been living for so long And avoiding the war because we never want to hurt others, but when we are hurt due to the avoidance of war and disturbance creating due to saving peace so now we have to change the policy of not fighting war and to make full peace There is a big need to fight the big war which is against the wrong that teach us in our scriptures and the Krishna in Geeta.
