Peace is the mother of progress. Without peace a nation cannot make any progress. So peace is ever desirable. But now-a-days if there be no peace, the whole human race will be destroyed. Because modern war involves atom bomb and hydrogen bomb. So, war should always be avoided for world peace.
Horror of the modern war:
The ancient battles were confined between two opposite armies. They were limited within a field called battlefield. But the modern warfare is totally different. The fight is not confined in a field or within the armies. The war-aeroplanes destroy the civilians by dropping bombs from the sky. On the 6th August 1945 the allied army dropped a small atom bomb on a Japanese city Hirosima. The whole city was destroyed with a second. Not a single man could escape. Negasaki another city of Japan got the same fate on the 9th August 1945. These two bombs with the brightness of thousand suns performed their monstrous destruction. This opened the eyes of the whole world. The wise men counted that the human civilization would be ruined to the bit, if a war ever takes place. So, they are working hard to establish permanent peace in the world. Except some war-mongers, the whole world is in favour of peace.
The cold war:
Since the second world war was over, the world has been divided into two opposite camps- one under the leadership of Anglo-American block and another under the leadership of the then Soviet Republic. Recently France has tried to create another power-block under her own leader-ship. All these activities mean restlessness and race of armament. This was called cold war. Though there was no actual war there existed war-like condition such as army-mobilization, conscription, making of arms and the like. This might lead to war at any time. Since the disintegration of Russia, the cold war has declined.
Movement for world peace:
United Nations Organization is the out come of the desire of the world people. The organization is working for world peace by pursuation, conciliation, arbitration and by fighting against the culprit country in acute case. The Panchasila or the five points propounded by Jawaharlal Nehru has been accepted by many countries for world peace. The five points are (1) mutual respect for one another’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. (2) non-aggression, (3) non-interference in one another’s internal affairs for any reason of economic, political or ideological character, (4) equality and mutual benefit, (5) peaceful co-existence. India and the other non-aligned countries together have organized to peace-area.
World-peace is absolutely necessary. The public opinion of the world is in favour of lasting peace. None in the world approves of the military action of China in the border of India. it is hoped, world-peace will gain ground. Long live world peace.
