अहिंसा in India– A dream Bapuji cherished till his life was ended by हिंसा. I don’t know what is more ironic than that. India, throughout it’s history, has never been a land of peace, atleast going by what I’ve read. Even our great scriptures have disastrous wars mentioned in them, detailing them in great depth.
To overcome this, we’ve come up with the best possible solutions. India is the land where Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism and Buddhism originated. These religions preached the importance of peace from their core. But even after 30,000 years of civilisation, people don’t get it. It has started to feel like we won’t get it in the future as well.
Because, according to science, we’ve learnt one thing for sure. Reaction won’t happen spontaneously, until it increases the entropy of the universe. More entropy means more chaos. If chaos doesn’t increase, the world wouldn’t move forward. It’s foolish to create moral systems to contain this chaos.
So, to sum it up, India is neither a land of अहिंसा, nor it ever was. But, we can just try and hope to get there somehow….!!
