Even today many societies are facing times of crises, crises of ethics, cultural descents and contorted values that produce violence that every normal personal is horrified. But, that shouldn’t hesitate us. That doesn’t mean that we should give up or hold up. The people that are in the middle of these conflicts need help. Where weapons rule, reasons can’t reach. Let us recall the words of our greatest humanitarian Foster Teresa, “We need to bring to light God, and he cannot be found in noise et al restlessness. Pantheon is the familiar of silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls”.
While speaking in Summit ‘Saharasri’, Subrata Roy Sahara, Managing Worker & Chairman, Sahara India Pariwar, said, “For our external personality, that is, our body, food and water keeps it energetic, active and healthy, just for our internal personality that is the spiritual personality, that is for our mental body, the food is peace and happiness for giving us best quality mental health with lots of strong will power also positive energy always seen as active optimism.Every human wants always to have a happy and satisfied life.
But no course can be happy and satisfied without a peaceful state of mind. Euphoria chases peace, only peace does not chase happiness. Peaceable has to be in a person’s life and all around him. Peace in his immediate family, peace in his neighbourhood, quiescent in his till place, tranquility in his city, appeasement in his country…. and so on.Here in this peace festival if we only talk about peace between two countries, that is if we talk and discuss about war between the countries, I fear we shall reach nowhere, we won’t be adept to achieve peace in the life of individual human beings for a long term or most desirably life long. This is not surrounding individual stopping war, its about choosing PEACE. WE CHOSE PEACE OVER WAR.
Any country is not a human being in itself. Country’s body and face is the combined and collective faces of populate about the country, however, few human beings sit at the helm of affairs and take all decisions for the country.
It is human beings everywhere who are instrumental in bringing about peace or violence. In any country is Government or Government machinery, religious groups, sects oppositely dissimilar kind concerning organisations, the human beings who are given leadership at various levels are responsible for Peace or Violence. Entireness such people absent of disregard about fundamentals of life, indulge, initiate or become instrumental foolishly in violence and in transmogrify invite irritation, tensions, dejections, disappointments, dissatisfactions etc. in by-and-by in their own lives, too. May be at any moment of time some individual in a leadership position plans, thinks and initiates within a narrow narrow vision; may be he does it out concerning greed, but he cannot visualise or does not have clarity about knowledge of life or about the future when he shall have to reap poison for his today’s wrong vivacity or reaction seeds which he has sown. Poison of future is not only for him but for the people of the country.
Well, at the end, I shall tell scantiness things that God has given us, Brain, Mind, and Heart & Ghost alongside a very hot thinking power. We can achieve anything and everything with the aid of these faculties.Balkan region countries can become front runners for world peace. It choice be greatest contribution to the world.”Under the auspices of the Festival, the Champions of Peace Award has also been conferred to Mr. Jeremy Gilley Hollywood actor and originator of Peace One Day Creation for his efforts for Global Peace, especially his initiatives direct Foundation and his astounding perception campaign held in Hague on the 21st of September, 2013.
