As Such It Would Be Unthinkable To Treat Peace As A Condition Characterized Simply By Worldwide Absence Of Conflict/War. Peace Loving Nations Examines The Rich/Poor Divide, Globalization, Trade And Above All, Global Inequality Both In A Lighter And Serious Perspective. For Instance, Some Of The Questions Which Need An Answer Are: Is Peace Only The Absence Of War; Why Is It That Even Affluent Nations Live In So Much Of Insecurity; Why Mindless/Limitless Material Consumption/Consumerism Is A Scourge In Societies Of The World; Why Should Nations Continue Losing Their Children To Hunger And Malnutrition And The Importance Of Human Development To Achieve Dignity. Also, A Word On Climate Change And Global Warming. A New World Is Emerging. A World That Is Moving Towards Compassion. A World That Is Moving Towards Greater Tolerance. Towards Peace. There Is Now More Demand For Equality Than Ever Before. Under These Circumstances, It Becomes Necessary That We The 'Peace-Loving Nations' Of The World Should Facilitate The Achievement Of A More Egalitarian Global Order. This Is Only A Utopian Dream. As Someone Deeply Concerned With Alternative Issues And The Meaning Of Peace, It Is My Sincere Hope That My Dream Will One Day Become A Reality., About The Author:- Ms Nilanjana Sanyal Has A Bachelor Degree In Psychology From Ip College, Delhi University.
