ON WAR AND VIOLENCE

Gloom incubates carnal desires and they thrive in it. They give asylum to 'betting', 'perjury', drinking and duplicity. If once they are invited they ardently try for consolidating their position and paint their owner with indelible colours. Slowly he emerges a full-fledged, blood-thirsty despot with abnormal appetite that could likely swallow even the Himalayas at a single gulp. Murder and butchery appear naked everywhere, since that blood-hound becomes a dealer, as it were, in blood and flesh now onwards. He starts wading through pools of blood, strewn with mutilated heads and floating limbs. Of course, he reaches his goal unaffected, as he is stone-deaf to the agonized wails of the innocent. For, humanism touches him not, nor remorse dares meeting him. But he is not immune to 'Nemisis'. It approaches him at the right time and starts working against him. First, it calls for the accounts and compels him to submit the balance-sheet. A glance at it would throw a flood of light on his `liability' column which being out-grown its limits has encroached on the 'assets' column. The enormity of his liability and its dastardly composition strike him blind and capsizes him rudely.

Driven by utter despair, he releases the remaining satanic forces in reserve, against his adversaries to repair his broken future. Ironically they close him from all sides and take him captive, only to throw him into hell-fire for total consumption. Thus ends up the career of the over ambitious individual, who is not schooled in virtues, and consequently is at war with the world and nature. Why, with his own 'self' primarily. The war which he waged took its origin in his own self, which is ill disciplined and ill-formed. Hence the woe.
