International Peace Day 2021

International Day of Peace aka World Peace Day is observed every year on September 21 to strengthen peace across nations by observing 24 hours of non-violence and ceasefire.

The United Nations first observed World Peace Day in 1981 while the date to celebrate the day was eventually changed to September 21 in 2002.

The day is also a reminder for the people of all nations to think about universal peace.

The definition of peace is commonly associated with non-violence but it actually goes beyond efforts taken by people to make the world a better place.

The Nobel Peace Prize is the most well-known award given internationally to the people who have contributed to bring peace across the nations.

Over the years, many have worked towards bringing peace through different means.

On the occasion of World Peace Day, here is a look back at Indians who won Nobel Peace Prize. 

Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa, an Indian nun born in Macedonia, had won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her work with the poor and downtrodden, especially in Calcutta. Despite cashing the prize money, she donated it to the poor.

The award was given for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress in the world, which also constitute a threat to peace according to the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

She founded the religious congregation, Missionaries of Charity, in Calcutta in 1950 and worked with it till her death in 1997 in the same city.

Dalai Lama

Dalai Lama had won Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, ten years after Mother Teresa. The Dalai Lama was born in Tibet’s Taktser but has been a resident of India since his exile in 1959. He arrived in Mussoorie first, before making Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh his home. The world has acknowledged his efforts to bring Tibetan free from China through non-violence.

Kailash Satyarthi

In 2014, Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian social reformer won the Nobel Peace Prize along with Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai, for his efforts to protect children from child labour and help them get an education.

Over 41 years, he has been involved in various initiatives, starting with the Bachpan Bachao Andolan in 1980, which works towards building a child-free society by providing free education.

Notably, Mahatma Gandhi was nominated five times for this award in 1937, 1938, 1939, 1947 and 1948 but did not receive it till the end.

Rameshwaram Cafe blast: Karnataka Home Minister reveals how police inputs helped NIA arrest accused

The blast at the cafe occurred during lunch hour on March 1 at around 1 pm, which left 10 people injured

Published

Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara said on Saturday that inquiry teams were attempting to determine whether the two suspects in the Rameshwaram cafe blast who were detained by the NIA had any connections to other terrorist groups. He also praised the state police for their contributions, some of which resulted in their arrest. Meanwhile, the suspects have been placed in 10-day police custody on remand.

The Karnataka police and the NIA have both performed incredibly well. In the beginning, they obtained all of the CCTV footage and monitored one of the accused, which helped in their arrest, he said.

The minister disclosed how the NIA was able to arrest the accused, which was possible because of a tip from the police.

He said the police shared very good inputs with the NIA, like the cap the accused was wearing, which was purchased from Chennai, and the telephone number he had given in the shop.

According to G Parameshwara, the services were also looking for connections between them and other crimes related to terrorism. He said that they might be attempting to flee from West Bengal to Bangladesh, where they were apprehended by the NIA.

He said the team is investigating the real motive behind the blast and their involvement with other terror outfits (ISIS), as these two (accused) are supposed to be involved in the earlier Shivamogga blast and kept running for three to four days ahead of getting arrested in this case, Parameshwara stated.

Since they were apprehended in West Bengal, a state that shares a border with Bangladesh, it’s possible that they wanted to leave the country. However, currently, they don’t have any precise information on this. He continued, They will discover in due course if there is someone assisting from that side (Bangladesh).

Meanwhile, the blast at the cafe occurred during lunch hour on March 1 at around 1 pm, which left 10 people injured. On March 3, the NIA took over the case from the police and announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for any information regarding the two accused.
