Hi Virginia,

Thanks for the acceptance of my friend's request. Hope you are well.

My NGO ( is working on training and empowerment of rural/tribal women and I am in process of designing a curriculum on 'peace education' as one of its training modules.

May I solicit your help in this regard? Looking forward to your response.

best regards,

Yogesh Jadhav

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our indian culture and traditional.
we created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for a genuine reason or a false reasons for any reason.but this the time to realize that we are one and we naturally interconnected with each other ,which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of breaths the source is same ,without any discrimination,religion, boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable ,respectable .we should follow the nature's rule ,non violence .peace ,god has given us a human life not for destruction but for look after the wellbeing of all living life.
