It is easy to talk about positive thing, about keeping hope alive and about societal positive aspects when a person is living a healthy and peaceful life. Moreover such so called happy people will always be here to tell others how beautiful this world is. But how a person can understand any other person who is living a completely different life. When one is happy, he looks at things happily but how a happy and an unhappy person can feel, perceive and jugdge same thing in a same manner. When a person is depress, simply he is depress. It is a sheer non sense to advice him to cheer up and take interest in things the way he used to take. There is no exact reason of depression. Also, it can be the part of the life of any person any time. No one choose depression delibrately. When a person becomes depress, his mind simply stops functioning in a normal way. this is what depression is and yes it is real.
Different religions, different beliefs and different ways of life. However, the ultimate purpose of the creation of men is make them suffer from the day one till the last. If there is reality in heaven-hell concept. The world in which we live is surely a hell.
O God help all those we are tired of suffering. Help them to escape this space.
Heaven welcomes those who have suffered
United Nations was formed to bring peace and avoid war. It was hoped that world would not encounter any other major war. Efforts were made to ensure the implementation of Uno agenda. There are a few achivements of United Nations. However, the major conflicts of world are still pending to be resolved. If we talk about human rights, it will be realized that many people are suffering because of discriminatery policies of Uno for developed and developed countries. Had ther been active role of UNO, America would have not dared to invade Iraq. Moreover, after Arab spring, middle east trapped into a quagmie. Iraq, syria and yamen have lost their glory. People of these three countries are dying but UNO has failed to solve this issue. Moreover if we talk about right of self determination, we will realize that how palestinians,kurds and kashmiris are deprived of this right of theirs. Moreover, our world has seen many issues eg Rawanda genocide, serbian crisis, afghanistan war, vietnam war etc. Moreover, Rohingia crisis is another issue that shows how UNO has failed to bring peace in the world.
Though the case studies of Afghanistan war and vietnam war are different, there are so many similarities. Being super power, America aspires to maintain her hegemonic influence all over the world. It is not wrong to say that American involvement in vaitnam was due to her imperialistic ambitions. America fought a war that was not infact her own war. If we reminiscene vaitnam war, we will understand how people suffered just because of wrong policies of America. In 1950s Vietnam was under the influence of frances. At that time, insurgency was started, against the rule of france in vietnam, under the leadership of Ho chi, a resurgent of north vietnam. After this, ho chi eatablished his own government in north vietnam. He announced the establishment of his government that was recognized by china and USSR. Afterwards, u.s backed french based government in south vietnam. At this point, fight between north vietnam under the leadership of ho chi backed by china and USSR and south vietnam backed by france and America reached at its worst point. In the beginning, America backed France by providing military support but gradually she started sending troops to south vietnam. This fight was not free from violance and violation of human right. A lot of people were killed including children. American troops present on the soil of vietnam reached around 1.5 million. American remained there for 10 years and finally decided to withdraw by considering the ground realities. It was a right decision without any iota of doubt.
Afghanistan war-after 9/11
As almost everyone knows Aghanistan crisis was started after 9/11 attack. This crisis has become a never ending phenomenon. Immediately after attack on twin towers, America decided to send her troops to Afghanistan. Taliban government was toppled. American came with an ambition toeradicate the menace of terrorism and bring peace in the region. A coalition government was formed in Afghanistan. Now Afghan government backed by America and taliban not overtly backed by any country are fighting to win this war. Its been 18 years since the beginning of this war. Many American presidents during their election compaings came up with plan to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, it was never followed after becoming president. The number of American Military soldiers has reached around 100000, still no improvement is seen. America claimes that around 41 percent area is under the control of taliban whereas Taliban claimes the control of around 61 percent area of Afganistan. Afghan governemt cannot fight this war without involvement and help of USA. It is estimated that around 840 billion dollars has been spent on this war. It is a huge huge amount. Moreover, aound 2200 Americans have been killed. Being a deveoped country, America uses modern technology while taliban depends on selling of drugs and snatching weapons to fight this war.
A comparison between vietnam and Afghanistan war:
Vietnam was not American own war but she fought it directly. At that time, America Took a right decision to withdraw from vietnam by considering the fact that this war cannot be won. While In case of Afghanistan, American government do not have any clear long term policy. Their focus is just to win the war at any cost. It seems as if America wants to live here forever. Their focus is just on fighting. It must be realized that war is never a solution when it comes to bring peace in any region. Condering the hold of taliban in Afghanistan, it will be wrong to assume that America can bring peace in the region without consent and agreement of taliban. Infact America is undermining the ground realities thts why they never come with a long term agenda to solve this issue. Condering geopolitical objectives of America, it is considered that America want to stay here to maintain her influence and check the activities of China. But it must be realized that war is not a solution.

It is mostly considered that the regulation of pleasure principle determines the purpose of human life. There are different views regarding the functionality of these principles. Men feel happines when their needs are fulfilled. However, perpetual presence of hapiness erode the level of our pleasure and enjoyment. Instead we feel pleasure in a state where both happiness and unhapiness come after one another. The latter is easy to get as it can be obtained not only by our own self but also by world and other people. Unhapiness that cames from other people is more painful.
Hunting gave a theory that after cold war clash among countries with be on cultural lines. There are around seven major civilizations in the world. These seven are Muslim, Hindu, western, japanese, chinese,African and orthodox. Huntington further said that these civilization conflicts can be both at micro and macro level. Micro level conflict means conflict between communities and macro level conflict means conflict between countries of differnt civilizations. Many scholars do agree with there views of Hungting. However many disagree with him. To accept his theory, israel-palestine conflict is one of the best examples. Had this conflict happened between two countries of same civilization, this issue would have solved in a better way. But, owing to the fact that these two nations are from different civilizaions, this conflict has become a never ending phenomenon. Moreover the conflict between west and Islam can be seen in term of America-iran conflict.
Moreover, many people who do not agree with Hungting come up with the view that saudia Iran tussle is one the major conflicts of the world but this conflict is not between two different civilizaion. Personaly i do agree with this mentioned point of view.
Though Huntington gave an opinion based theory, it needs more clarity and evidence based justifications.
