Essay on “Science and Peace” Complete Essay for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

Science and Peace

“There is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so.” – (Shakespeare)

Science is power. It is to be mastered by us ‘Science is bad’, it is wrong. Like every powerful thing, it has the dark and bright side. If it is used in constructive side  , it will help us in removing superstition, in making the world one and in removing diseases. If we use science in destructive way, it can turn the world into ashes. The atomic war will end our whole world. There will be chaos.

Who can deny the uses of science? Science has revolutionized the life in every field of life such as travel transport, communication, recreation, agriculture, industry, medicine , trade and commerce. Electricity is working wonders. Atom is a great source of power. ‘Science has improved the circumstances of man, not the man himself’ (wing field). It is clear that Man is bad because of misuse of Science. The war weapons were made. Here science did not compel to make them. It was our greed and madness for power that urged us to make destructive weapons because we want to finish each other.

Now wars are results of our economic policy. We want to sell our large scale production into other lands. Others also do the same.

Science  has    given quick means of transport and communication. They help us in wining wars more quickly. Hence no long war is possible. Railways, steam ships and aeroplanes make it easy to send troops and food supplies to distant places in a short time. Thus the enemy is promptly checked.

The means of communication such as telegraph, telephone and wireless play a great part in checking war. The speedy means of communication help  the administrators in brining in the critical and violent situation under control.

Atomic energy can be used for establishing peace in the world. Atomic weapons and Hydrogen bombs can check the war activates. Millions of men are killed in war. The fear of loss of life and property can put a check upon those courtiers which life war. So they think several times before declaring a war.

The means of recreation can be used for establishing peace in the world. The horrible scenes of war, the miserable conditions of people after war and the scenes of destruction can be depicted on the screen. So the people can take some lessons from it. The after effects of war can be broadcasted from the radio. All these things can make man to determine not to wage war.

However, there have been two great attempts for maintaining peace in the world. After First World War the League of National was set up with  a view to check war and ensure peace in the world. But it failed in achieving its objects. After Second World War U.N.O. was set up. But how far it would be successful we have yet to see.

Fear is the cause of war. This international fear should be removed. The war is a curse and has to be avoided. It is only possible when the good of each individual is brought out to the fore. We do not suffer split atom but from split mind. Wars are the result of feeling present in Mind. It is in the mind of man that war is first fought, then on field. When the sense of brotherhood passes away from mind and when we forget kindness, goodness and fellowship, we enter into wars. So we are responsible for wars, not science. It is the mentality or thinking of man that is in need of proper direction – ‘War can never bring everlasting peace.”
