  • How can the mentally susceptible soldiers protect people ? Since the soldiers are not doing spiritual practice, they are not aware how to overcome adverse situations and remain stable. They resort to such extreme steps.
  • A major drawback of modern education is that it does not have a concrete solution to prevent suicides. There is a dire need for Indians to start performing spiritual practice.
