The world observed on 2nd October the International Day of Non-violence. What does a life of non-violence mean to you? How can we transform to-day's disturbed and agitated society to a peaceful one? Why do many people to-day seek to adopt the means of violence in their daily life?

Hi naraya, I believe October 2nd is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, and that is who I always think about when someone speaks of non- violence. I still hope for a world without war, a world of peace and I expect it to come someday. Blessings.

I think that people get mad too easily. Everyone is paranoid about who is after them and who they can trust. There is a lot of anger in layers that keep coming back. Alternatives can be made, people can be aware of using their intelligence and not intimidation.
