To raise awareness that when states invest in arms, they invest in the annihilation of human beings, and government budgets would be better spent on education, health, housing, and human rights.

 I want to participate to be able to add my voice to World March for Peace and Nonviolence and have this life-changing experience to take a stand for Peace. I want to ask world citizens all over to take this stand and help raise consciousness of people for Peace so that the coming generations live in a world without wars and complete nonviolence of all kinds.

I am motivated to join this World March and if chosen, will be learning Spanish and Italian to be able to converse with people with whom I will be travelling and meeting across nations. This will be a once in a lifetime experience as it will not only enhance my perception of the world but I will have great satisfaction in being able to devote my time to a cause that I believe will lead to a better world situation.

I have been working with the Humanist Movement in India – Mumbai, since 12 years and have participated in various activities of Personal Change and Social Change. I have been a part of and conducted several retreats as well as been a part of several local campaigns and even worked for the Humanist Party.

I hope this effort can stimulate the diffusion of the non-violent approach to problems, particularly in those countries where the differences among the people are dramatic.

 I feel this is a way to unite people from all over the world in this common goal of choosing peaceful solutions instead of conflict to solve our many national and international challanges. There is a growing conciousness that humanity desires to change the dangerous path we are on. I believe in Gandhi’s words “be the change you wish to see in the world” and this World Peace March is part of that change.

 Dimostrare il valore della parola “pace”, della necessita’ di porre fine alle guerre nel mondo e perche’ sono convinto che vivere in un mondo senza guerre ampia le possibilita’ di ridurre le incomprensioni, motiva il dialogo e gli scambi interculturali e facilita la nascita di relazioni umane, sociali, culturali ed economiche sconfiggendo le crisi e superando le barriere delle diversita’. Personalmente desidererei tutto questo e per testimoniarlo la presidenza del comitato mondiale dei giochi mondiali della pace mi ha affidato (nella persona di monsieur yves angelloz) mi ha affidato un compito di rappresentanza istituzionale da rendere pubblica nel corso della marcia mondiale e durante gli eventi previsti per ogni tappa. Il comune di monopoli (prov. Di bari) che finanzia la mia partecipazione intende fortemente di potersi fregiare del titolo di citta’ della pace e della non violenza e di contribuire, per quanto puo’ essere possibile, a rendere maggiormente evidenti questi valori e questo messaggio in ogni luogo in cui potra’ farlo. Personalmente, infine posso solo concludere dicendo che sacrifichero’ con il mio impegno e il mio contributo personale a favore del gruppo base… Molto volentieri…Sia il mio lavoro, sia la mia famiglia, sia la mia stessa persona per il raggiungingimento degli scopi della marcia mondiale.
