We belong to a country whose history reverberates peace and non violence in its freedom fight movement. Well, it is to be admitted that the path to this liberation was not enveloped with peace alone. We had had sacrifice of many Martyrs whose names may not be carved in Golden letters. We always tend to follow the path of non violence to achieve our needs and demands. But most of the time it becomes non pragmatic. A peaceful demonstration hardly meets the target.

If we consider the case of our own country, we have had a lot of pressures and threats in our border in-spite of the peaceful alliance we keep with our neighbors. But nothing tend to change this trend. Our soldiers continue to become Martyrs.

I would say that the act violence should not trigger from our side, but when the situation demands us, we have no plans to retreat.

According to me, peace and non-violence are outdated topics because what happened earlier was if people or leaders cannot make higher authorities agree on any issue the leaders use peace protest for as long as possible but if we compare the situation in the present people want instant results there are many issues like mob lynching, honour killing etc in which people lose temper to such an extent which result in loss of life recently an incident happens in a place near to Ranchi. We need to help people who are suffering and being compassionate towards them will definitely bring back peace and non-violence. We cannot take law in our hands simply because opinion varies from people to people and using the internet sometimes misleading information is shared which leads to violence.

For me, Peace and non-violence are all about Respecting everyone use of peaceful means to bring changes.

Peace and non-violence will never be an outdated concept. They are important for the survival of mankind on earth.

We can take the example of Anna Hazare who took a strong stand for Lokpal bill through peace and non-violence.

The youth today knows his/her limits and they know that how to fight for their rights provided no one gets hurt. We know that there is much more than religion, we know that less we interfere in others life, more will be the peace in the society.

There is nothing in this world which can't be settled through talks. Doklam issue is the best example, where our PM settled the issue through talks to maintain peace and harmony between the countries.

Peace and nonviolence can never be outdated. By nonviolence situations only exacerbate. While people are disturbed and resort to violence they don't understand the harm they are causing to others. But after momentary anxiety people repent about what they have done. Peace talks are a way better solution to come to an agreement. Through peace and negotiation, people get to know each other's faults and good. But at times harsh steps needed to bring to books the perpetrators. Like terrorists. They can't be defeated by peace talk cause they don't understand the meaning of it. There needed strong military actions. But when and wherever peaceful talking can resolve a situation people must follow the path of it. Thank you.

Many of us, think that we need to have a Gandhian attitude to develop India.


Just think once more. Will this really be helpful? It's very difficult for us today to adopt this attitude when we always need fast results.

I ain't saying that we should go for violence but we just need to put our argument in a really really strong manner.

As you all know about the things happening in India. Also, you know our drawbacks. Just the thing we need to so is to keep our voice low and arguments high.

Peace & Non-Violence reminds us of NAM.

NAM is a group of people that are not formally aligned or against any major power bloc.

The question is not only whether it has any relevance or validity to India or any other countries post-cold war era of today but also if the policy has served the young nation as it was believed it would do in defending & promoting the national interest.

One of the unfortunate aspects of the foreign policy debate in our country has been that there has been no debate.

The argument was that we needed peace in the world to devote all our energies and resources to development work. It was India's role and duty to prevent from being sucked into the ideological war. The non-aligned community made an important contribution in arresting the deadly rivalry between capitalism and communism and thus saved India, and other non-aligned countries, from becoming pawns in the global game of the super powers.

On the whole, NAM did not bring any particular benefit, political or economic, to India. India does not need to belong to an amorphous group or give any label to its foreign policy to achieve its goals. We do not need to hanker after leadership. Leadership has to be recognised by the followers, it cannot be a self-appointed affair. India has to be a strong power, not to bully anyone but merely to defend itself against the hostile forces in the region. An economically strong India, which alone can become militarily strong, will earn respect and leadership.

Pragmatism, and not a profession to some outdated concept, must be the guiding principle of our diplomacy.

Peace and non-violence are never the outdated systems. Peace is all about our religion. KARUNA is the base of DHARMA said by Lord Krishna in Gita. Non-violence cannot get success.

These are movements which conducted by gurjar, jat etc another caste never get success because their movements were placed in the nonviolence. They fired everywhere & public suffered by their nonviolence.

So I think nonviolence cannot be a solution of any kind of situations.

Peace and non violence is a concept that has been overshadowed by violence in all forms of media and entertainment. Though I do believe this to contribute heavily to the violent and non morality mindset I see in our youth.

Hello guys.

Today the real meaning of peace is not really understood properly. When you ask what peace means to a school-going guy like me, he would say "when there are no wars". An office-going man would say "when there is violence". But what do "peace" and "non-violence" really mean? There is no real 'definition' for these words, just like there isn't for a pen or a country. But it really 'means' a lot.

I understand 'peace' as when everyone is cool from the mind, can think clearly and understand and respect others. So basically, peace doesn't just mean "when there are no wars" or "when there is violence". Then what is non-violence?

Violence is generally accepted as when there is unrest or disturbance, which leads to directly and (mostly) physically harming someone or some people. So non-violence is when a disturbance rises, you handle it 'peacefully' and not 'violently'.

Coming to the main question : are these terms outdated? The obvious answer is NO, they aren't. These thing apply to humanity as a whole and are definitely very, very important and ever-essential for our very survival. If there is violence, all life is bound to disappear. More importantly, there have to be 'feelings' and 'sympathy for others'.

So, these aren't just words that have become history like/and Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. They continue to be here forever and are ever-modern. How is one even supposed to exist without these?

Peace And Violence are the terms we are used to hear since childhood, but do we really know what their real meaning is. No absolutely not. We just know that peace and violence are the terms related to wars, or else Mahatma Gandhi time.

Peace is having different a meaning now, peace means calmness and tranquility, a person who is calm, unbiased can really understand the meaning of peace. Hot headed people like violence and to them everything can be overcome by violence. So according to me peace can be there when a person clear his or her head and think properly with every aspect to form his/her opinions, then only peace can overcome the huge term 'VIOLENCE'.

Well, according to me Nonviolence and peace are weapons that are powerful enough to combat with the most dangerous forms of Power and Destruction.

Words in my opinion are an inexhaustible source of magic that can heal injuries. Words have such a powerful impact that leaves a long lasting impression. Injuries caused by war or duels that may crop up in certain nasty circumstances are guaranteed to heal with the passage of time.

However, words have the ability to strike a person's mind directly and are not easily forgotten. While in some cases instead of words we might need actions to be performed, as for example when people are tortured by terrorists and are trapped in the net of their barbarity words won't lead to a fruitful outcome. You might end up causing lots of innocent lives getting nipped in the bud. In those cases, we need stringent actions to be performed. Hence the fact that word and actions when combined together and handled in a proper way, can work wonders.

Definition : Nonviolence is the personal practice of being harmless to self and others under every condition. It comes from the belief that hurting people, animals or the environment is unnecessary to achieve an outcome and refers to a general philosophy of abstention from violence based on moral, religious or spiritual principles.


1. A big example where non-violence was easily applicable, Muzaffarnagar riots. A muslim youngster teasing a Hindu Jaat girl. This issue could have been resolved by filing an FIR against the youngster and getting him penalized. Instead he was murder and one thing led to another and eventuating into inter-communal violence. Over 1000 people died, 2500 injured and around 50,000 displaced.

2. Non-Violence is applicable to every contentious issue provided the people are ready to amicably resolve it.

3. Violence and vandalizing does not bring about any result rather aggravates the situation further.

The widespread destruction in due course eventually costs huge to the bearer.

4. Many sensitive inter-religious issues can be contained peacefully without use of violence which is better for both the people and the environment.

Peace and non violence were never the main tools of war in the very past. We specially found its implementation in Indian freedom struggle, all because of the efforts Mahatma Gandhi. If we read through the pages of Indian freedom struggle we will realize the power of non violence. Today nothing can be said with stress if peace and non violence are outdated concepts or not, because we find wars and destruction everywhere. Again there are still groups of people who trust in non violence and the profit of sorting out disagreements through peaceful negotiations. Young minds have become aggressive. But it is because they find the people around them adopting violent means to get there things done. Its like-One rotten apple in a basket, can ruin all the other apples present in the basket.

But again it depends on what do we trust -whether the destructing violent means or on ideals and principles of peace and non violence.

Hello friends!. This is Manthan and I have just completed my 12th. According to me peace and non violence can never be outdated but violence also can never be eradicated. Because in today world, there some things which can be solved only by non violent and peaceful means but sometimes the person or community with whom you are treating may not believe in the same concepts and so at those time you have to use violent means instead of peace and nonviolence.

So one cannot only stick to peace and non violent concept instead everyone should react according to the situation as nobles and ideals may sometime don't work as you have thought. Many of my friends here gave the example of Gandhiji but no one seen the blood shedded because of that, so our approach to the problems depends on the nature of problems. So my conclusion is peace and non violence are not outdated but also not the must do concept.

To resolve matters, one must have a clear mind. If a meeting aimed at solving an issue is held, and we approach it with a hot headed attitude, obviously the expected results cannot be attained. Human beings have the ability to think and reason with others. I believe that a peaceful mind is necessary for one to reach a sensible conclusion, one that is not cluttered or affected by thoughts of violence. Decisions taken under the influence may solve an issue temporarily but it may lead to greater problems in the future. A decision taken after careful contemplation and logical reasoning will surely have a positive impact. But there are people in this world, who are too stubborn to reason, or to sit down at a table and discuss matters peacefully, I would suggest the path of peace to them, but if that doesn't work, I bet a strong hand is what it takes to bring such people to understand. Let me quote, "An eye for an eye, makes the whole world blind", So, I don't believe that non violence can always bring a solution to a problem, but as my friends said above, if you can't deal it with any other way, this is the way you have to choose.

There are things situations where we have to fight where we have to be violent and it is not at all wrong if we are fighting for something good. If these terrorist are attacking us we must attack them too, here peace and violence fails.

If the other community or country is violent then we have to be violent. Even if you are talking about our country past that because of "only" Gandhi ji and his non violence and peace activities we got independence. I am sorry whosoever stated this was not exactly correct. Our revolutionaries who shed their blood for us for our country not Gandhi ji. They were the people who never died but sacrificed their life for us. They were the real heroes behind our independence. At the end I must contribute that peace and non violence can't work everywhere we have to be violent for the violent terms.

Peace and Non-violence can never be outdated concepts. In the past, Mahatama Gandhi ended the rule of Britishers over India by strictly non-violent means. And even in the current scenario, recently, Anna Hazare had set such a great example in front of the world by fighting the corruption disease in a non-violent and peaceful way, in which he succeeded. Hence, no doubt Peace and non-violence are Result-oriented tools. A Simple Boycott to a guilty person or organization can make him/it feel its guilt, there would be a change in its soul, which any war can never bring.

Although in some situations, we can raise our hands along with our voice. But that should be in a self-defence. There is a clean difference between Self-Defence and Violence. People must understand that if someone is trying to hit us with anything, we can reply him on the spot by giving him the taste of his own medicine, but the first hand must not be raised by us. Our Constitution also states that we can be violent in case of a self-defence action, it is in our human rights.

Peace and non-violence are definitely not outdated concepts. Like some people here have mentioned, you just need to look at the example of Mahatma Gandhi who won us independence from a mighty Empire through truth and non-violence. Also see how the peaceful Jasmine Revolution in the Arab World has relieved the people of Egypt and Tunisia (and probably more to follow) of corrupt and autocratic leaders.

It depends on the situation also. Like Sugu mentioned, we cannot deal with terrorists entering our country in a peaceful way. They must be dealt with ruthlessly. And in a democratic country like India, problems can be solved peacefully. If you are disillusioned with the government and the standard of life, you need not take to arms like the Naxalites. Instead, you can help some of the people suffering like how Dr. Binayak Sen the great human rights activist helped the tribals.

I vehemently believe that peace and non-violence uphold the spirit of mankind in the truest sense. Man was never meant to be violent. It is unfortunate that the scenario has changed drastically. We are all stuck in the rat race and have tendencies to outplay others by employing shallow means. One must understand that there is a thin line between violence and aggression. It is high time that non-violent men and women raise their voice against violence through peaceful demonstrations and buttress and propagate the concept of peace. Fighting for your rights is not violence provided you don't hurt anyone in the process intentionally. Wars has never done good to mankind if one views the world as one entity. It is true that wars have eliminated or destroyed certain evils in the world. But at what cost? At the cost of lives of innocent and ingenuous men and women being devastated?Is that justified?There are always more peaceful ways to combat terrorism and violence I. E through dialogues and better intelligence etc. Therefore, to conclude I believe that peace and non-violence will never ever be out-dated concepts-rather they are essential for the survival of mankind as a whole.

Peace and non violence can never become outdated, they are the tools through which one can put forward his righteous demands, violence increase the misery of lives. If violence is taken course in each sphere of life, the political stability of the world is bound to detoriorate.

yes,i do agree with u friends as the concept deals with both ends that is positive and negative its our responsibility to judge things according to the situation present i.e,at times violence gives us many unanswered questions,but to ease the pain of the situation we should go by peace and as citizen of country its our responsibility to spread peace and harmony in the country that's what i feel.

Formerly there were leaders who preached us peace n non voilence, but with advancement and awareness everyone is fighting for their own rights. today we have platform where we can fight for our rights. Young minds are more aggressive and excited. They fight and struggle for watever they deserve to recieve.So its not wrong to say that peace and non violence are outdated concepts.
