The millennium old world civilization has come across a plethora of clashes among different communities. Protective mechanisms in order to prevent those conflicts and clashes are scarce enough which ultimately led to heavy casualties across different phases of world society.There were a great amount of philosophers and statesman who tried to prevent these clashes.But still it persists. In the contemporary world, super national organisations and regional organisations to a large extent plays a quintessential role in order establish conflict less world.However the human community is suffering a lot due to the scour ages of war.War starts not in the battlefield, but it starts from the minds of the people stated by UNESCO.Individuals and their emancipation is the need of the hour in the contemporary world order. Individuals and nation states conflicts with one another on the bases viz., religion, ethnic, colour, and caste so on so forth.These bases are known for its sentimental composition which provokes the fellow humans to contradict with each other.Eastern philosophers and western bolsters various remedial steps in order to have ideal global order.Gandhism in India played pivotal role in shaping India and as well as Indians.Likewise each and every country has its own great social philosophers who fought for ideal order of human living.
