And that is the problem, we have to start to respect each other to end the war. Because, war is the biggest ongoing problem we are facing. Human vs Human, we always talk about whether AI is going to take over or Aliens are going to abduct us, but what about the present problems, what about the war we are holding against each other? Well, I live in a Country where we are taught to Co-Exist with love, peace and harmony. And this is the message I want to convey to the world, that start to respect, learn to Co-exist.
