To commemorate International Day of Peace with Right to Peace as the theme of the 2014 more than an annual ritual, we need to stop war of words and blame game which disturb the peace of mind individually and collectively around the world including Korea and India.

Peace mean absence of violence and war of all kinds anywhere and everywhere which calls for preventive measures more than curative including peace education.
