Description : The book is about a dream of mankind- the dream to live in "peacetime." After many conflicts and wars, in 1901 the humans initiated actions to materialize the dream. But unfortunately, the dream is still a dream after more than one hundred years. Time is nothing but realizing things in succession and is a condition and cause of conditions. Peace time is a mental phenomena and its measuring system is derived from functioning of solar system and cosmological units. The dream is to promulgate 28 days 13 months moon civil calendar which is a perfect, rational, uniform, regular and harmonious time calendar. This provides appropriate impulses to human minds for peaceful responses and to create a peace time culture. The book designs the Peace Calendar with names of 13 months of the year; each month promoting different moral values (as components of Peace) to mould the human minds towards "peacetime." The book also highlights the present problem of violence, terror and meltdowns in economic, social and environmental sectors in each of the 13 months. The UN is urged upon to take quick decision for fulfillment of the dream to save the humanity from large scale destruction and to switch over from the present "miserable time" to "peace time" by 2012-13, the cut off year for the beginning of holocaust in human civilization.
Description : What should military warriors do in peacetime?

The most important message of this book is that the order has by no means eliminated the need for armed forces.
