Indian philosophical thought have offered us numerous paths, ideas and thoughts on how to deal with our existence, with other humans and other species, with the structures that govern our lives and our environment. These interaction are essentially guided by the principles of conflict management and resolution. Human life and endeavors are fundamentally conflictual. India that has inherited one of the most diverse societies, has to deal with more multifaceted issues than other societies.
