The humanity witnessed, during the 20th century, events and catastrophes unprecedented at any other time. It pushed entire living beings on planet earth to the threshold of annihilation. The boundless hopes and expectations given to the humanity by advancement of science and technology were blown up by human greed beyond belief. On the other hand, violence, destruction, population explosion, ever increasing gap between haves and haves not, environment degradation, civilisational conflict etc. are threatening the very existence of living beings. The modern science and technology does not offer any effective recourse to these challenges. In a global scenario such as this, to stick to a firm righteous way of life appears to me the greatest achievement of an individual life.
