Life has been described as the ‘Supreme Self’ and it pervades and exists in every human being. The ancient sages have described the objectives of human existence in the world as Dharma (Righteousness), Artha (Money) , Kama (Desire) and Moksh (Salvation). Through the ways of Jnyana (Knowledge), Bhakti (Devotion) and Karma (Action) they reach the stage of salvation. The whole human existence revolves around those four objectives and three ways and all other principles of Science, Society and Business are abstract of this. 
Existence of human being in the society is based on law of nature. Nurtured by Environment, driven by the firm Desire to Survive, to live with dignity and happiness. The key drivers are Necessity, Beliefs, Happiness and Dignity. Survival can be sometimes in isolation, but for security, both physical and emotional, human beings have to live together.  For happiness, they have to share the emotions, joys and feelings, they need recognition of the fellow colleagues for their uniqueness. The whole leadership concept revolves around Survival, Human Dignity and Happiness. 

The key to discipline in the Society in Indian communities, aware or unaware of the rules, regulations, aware or unaware of the punishment system, the key drivers of the society are 
Spiritual Practices binds them with ethics, Dos and Don’ts. 
Strong relationship and trust developed among the people which binds them to the social institutionalized system, developed and practiced by them. 
The traditional knowledge transferred from generations helps them to remain grounded and work hard for their survival.
The System of jurisprudence they follow, according them is the law of nature, the belief system they live and grow. 

This country is not affected much by the pandemic, it is because of its community structure and conscious citizenship behaviour of its people. The families built up as an individual institutions follow common principles but sympathetic for others sufferings and empathetic for others knowledge, aspirations and dreams and feels for all.

    Respected Madam, the article is wonderful, connecting themes from myths to current issues is simply a great initiative. Sometime, I wonder how you could able to write such excellent articles with so much perfectness in any issues not from the same profession. It's a learning example for all of us. Thank you very much and wish many more to come from you in future to create an awareness addressing societal issues with compassion.

    Excellent explanation on the power of community. The tradition that passes from generations helps every individual some way or other. Representation is praiseworthy.

    The author explained the beauties of living together peacefully in the society. The element that links them together is at the core, and is the essence of the group. In the field of Public Health, we see community as a group of folks that are at risk of being infected or affected by certain types of diseases based on their demographic, social and economic status during these pandemic days. A community is a familiar thread used to bring people together to advocate and support each other in the fight to overcome these threats, which is the need of the hour. As human beings, we need a sense of belonging, and that sense of belonging is what connects us to the many relationships we develop.
