Solution t(w)o a Problem

I have always believed in solving problems ‘but’ to do that the most fundamental requirement is to make the problem-solving mind a ‘conflict-free-zone’. This means that this particular person must not have a single problem of his own. A person finds himself in problem when his views are in contrast to others. Ego? Yes..!! So an egoistic person is not suitable to solve problems. Similarly, our society is divided into sections/groups. These groups/sections include institutions, religious, ethnic, class, caste, communities’ concentrations. These concentrations could be external as well as psychological. Each concentrated group if personified results in similar condition I mentioned above in context of individuals. In other words, first, these concentrated groups cannot exist in isolation, they are inter-dependent, just like we human beings are and second, these groups have to be conflict-free within their own boundaries to develop from inside and nurture external
environment in which it has to survive. Making one’s group ‘conflict-free’ suggests understanding the reason for its existence and the crux of its content.

Nurturing external environment refers to the maintenance of relationship each group shares with the entire whole. It means that if a group wants to survive and secure its people it has to be in amalgamation with the other groups. There are only two ways to survive. Either by arrogant and egoistic way, where the group tries to establish its priority over other groups, and second, by peaceful and understanding way, where negotiation and respecting each other are the
most important requirements.

Former leads to conflict and latter to peace. And where there is conflict there cannot be security or protection for the group members[D1] . How ironic is the fact that the motif of concentrated groups is to secure the lives and future of its thought and members- especially its women and children but
because of the fundamental fault in its very existence that its being egoistic, arrogant and narrow-minded make it fall from within. This internal miss-understanding of itself that they can survive is isolation leads to external disputes as well. This again results in distrust and dissonance.

Whereas understanding the fact that “just like my group other groups also have the right to survive and flourish” leads to a peaceful and harmonious society where there is no fear and therefore no protection from or for anyone is needed. So from individual to the societal level this key understanding is mandatory if an individual or a group wants to solve a particular or universal problem.
