Effects and disasters of war:
The nature of war is destruction. It makes no difference what type of war it is, holy war, civil war, patriotic war, or be it the war of independence, all wars cause the damage to the balance of the society and its progress, creating social sense of disparity and deprivation.

If a war-torn society has to rebuild itself quickly, then human bonding can play a very important role in the acceptance of what has befallen and what must be done to redress the problems. Love for fellow beings and their sufferings and love for the cause of restoring the previous prosperity have always been a driving force behind the re-modulation of a society that has received blows of war. If people of violence stricken area are motivated, given good care and inspired rightly, they can recreate themselves again. They can reestablish their lost lives and drive away the harsh actions that disturbed their lives.
