Most of our IlRIUlllwl oomesa:s a result Conditioning is tha' psychologiesl processwhere.by we get used to speoIfic events, occurring in s:ssocIatJon With each other.

Mind Positively

hegfeatest philo.sopher ·01 al/ tlrne Aristotle has rightly sa/a, "We are WhalWe repeatedly do.

EJccellencsls not aft act, but a hab.it." We are 81/ b.orn to lead a .success(u/ Jives, .bul our ,co.ndmonlng leads ,us 10 fallure. We (lle bam to wIn bur are conditioned fo 10.S8. We often hear comments like "This person i'slu.cky, herouches dirt and ftturns to gold." or "He 15 unlucky •. no matter what h e touches, II tum 10 dfrt. "Believe it or not, Ihese comments am nor true of anyone,

/fyou ware 10 analyze thelivas of the luckyarrd unlucky IndMduBfs be.ing commented on, you'd find thaI the SUCC6{;sful person is doing som9- thing right/a each transaclftJn,end the failure Is repeating the same mIstake time and asain. Practice does not make perfeGl-onfy perfeGl pr'aGtice makes perfect. Pr:ar::lics makes perma· nent whatever you do repeatedly. Some peopla keep practicing thalr mistakes and they beccmfJ pe.rfeclln them. Their mislakes .becomeperfec! and 8.uloma.lfc.

Success Mirror. July 2010

what keeps us ontha tra.ck SlId habit ts what mak6S It automalfc:

The abflity 10 show coursge III the face of adversity; showself~(estraint in 'h.alsca 01 lamp la tlO.I1, choose happiness In tile face 01 hurt, show character In the lace of dBspalr and $88 opport.unify In the face of obslaclos are .8/1 valuable ttalts to pOSS8SS.. But Ih8se .trails db nol .sppear suddenly; Ihey ar8 the resull of ccnslant and cons:lste.nl Irainlng, both menlwand pMysicaJ. In Ihe face of adverslly, our .behsvfour, whethar posttive or negalive can only be what we hs'V'O pracliGed. When we practice negaliva fraits suCh as cowardice or dishonesty In smaJlevents., and nope /0 handle major 8vents in a posilive way, it won't happen because that's not what we ha.ve prar:IiGed.

If we permifoIJ/'Selves to tell a fie once, it lsa lot easier to do If a seco.nd and a third time until if becomes a habit. Remember, s.uccoss lies Inlha philosophy of sus lain and abstain. Sustain what needs 10 /)e dl)ne and abstain from what is dalrimen/al until this becomes heb/lual. HoneSty and Integrity ate the resull at both our belief system and pracUce. A person

who/shonest moslo! tMe lime gats caught fha first time he tells alia, ~hereas <I p.ef$Onwhl) is dishonest moslof the time gelS caught the nrst tim6 he tall the truth.

Someone once said, "Our

thoughts lead 10 .aclfons, 8Glions fead to habits, and habits form cIIaftlclet and character le'ads to desliny. We shOuld form 1M habit of thinking right. "

Most of ourbe.hav/our (X)mesas a result of conditioning. COndilloning is thepsychologlcaJ process whereby we get used to sp.ecific events, occurring in 8ssoctalion wlfh each other. The mas: famous example .01 conditioning Is Pavlcw's dogs. The Russian sclem/st PaVfollwou/d ring a bell each time he ted his do,gs. Of course., Ihedogs would sall'vsle al the sIght of their mea/. Pavfov did (hIS fat some timt;}. Thtm Pavlov rang the bell and dId nOl pro.duce the fOOd. TtJe dogs still saIivatad because they had been conditioned fo exp8CI the bef! with theIr food. Simllatly, we are all bein.g conditioned continuously by the environment end media,and we start behaving like robots. It is our re.spon$IblIity 10 co.ndil/on ourselv9$ in positive manner. Remember. good habits are hard 10 come .by but easy (0 live wilh .. Bad habits are easy 10 GQmetM hard rollve with.

How do we get oondiUoned ? An example would solve Ihis problem. How does an elephanl get ccn.d;!loned to slay in o.ne pJaca,. lied with awsak 'ope and a stake. when itcou/(J easily up.rootthe stake and movewhe.rever II wants? In fact, When tIleelephanr was .baby, It had been lied l;Iy asfrong chain to 8 slrongtte9. The baby is nol used to being tied, so it keeps tugging and pulling Ihe dlain, all {nvain: A day comes when it realizes Ihal t(Jgglng and pulling willno.t help. It .sl.opsand stands sill!. Now, ills cotlditlOnoo. And when the b.aby elephant becomes the mighty full grown elep.hanl; il Is fled a weak rope and a small $.Iake, .beIng conditioned, it doesnol go anywhere.

This condilioning is dee,ply

ImplBnted In one's Subconscious mind. The subconsc.lous mind can work lor us or against us. II does not care what we plant If weplani good seeds, we will have a good hSflles!, o.!heIWlse. wewfJlhave8wil(} g_rowth of weeds. In o.rder to suooeed, we need to gel goodharvesl.

In 1817,. the: US and the UK signed an agreement. for darnllltarization, of the regions. 01 Great La.ke and Lake Chapman. The Agreement was sig.ned by the then US foreign minist~er 'Richardi Rush and Ihe British Minister f.or WashinglonSir Charles Bagot, hence tt was termed Rush· Bagol. Trealy.

Issues in NuclearProliferaUon

Proliferation 01 nuclear weapons andlhe penchant of deve.loping nudear capabflilles have been a ma!or challenge across the world since 1945. On occasions, It has also contributed to the changing power equalions. Albell, the Nuclear Non·Proli· feration Treaiy(NPT). 1968 recog· nlses lila US, RUSSia. China,Britain and France as tile nuclear weapon states" In taet, about 13 countries have so far successfully developed fhe CQ,pab.iltly of enrich men I 01 uranium. In the lasl. couple of decades. the regions flk;e Soulh Asia, Southeast .Asia. West Asia etc, have become nuclea.r OashpoinlS.

In Ihe 1980s the conoopt of mlnlmum ,credible deterrence came 10 the fate which also contributed 10 proll-

feralicmof nuclear weapons. A general perception was developec:l thaJil was due 10 Ihisminimumdelerrence which had pre v enteda direciconlllcl betwee.n lhe SU.per·powers during the Cold War period. A peninenl question remains is Ihal w1"lo is responsible for such a proliferation. A number ofiXI'i· lieal sclemists "ke S8;gon and Waltz ha .... e opinedlhal mostly the protifereUon has been horizontal, that Is to say thai mosttylhe P5 nanons have been engaged In nuclear proliferation. However,it wouJdbe ,apposite to ,say that the enUre global stale system has contrlouted to II. As the concept 01 mlnlmum credible deterrence provides a sense of security par1icularly to new and emerging ,nal'ions, they desperately tried 10 developlhis ca,pability, however, withlhe approach 01 'no-fiml use'.

Otl1er ,contributing factors, inter alia, Include availability 01 nuclear technoloqlas and skilled 'manpower and domes1ic poli1ical policies. During Ihe Cold War period, a general nonon was Ihat no'. only for security, nuclear weapons are also required for lmprovIng the intematlonat reputatlon of a country .. 01 tare, nuclear proliferation and fncreasinglygrowing greed of acquiring nuclear capabilities have led 10 the growth 01 nuclearlerrorism 100. A number et teeorlst 'organizations may acquire such weapons which would pose serlousthreals 10 Ihe erulre inlernallonal security syslem. The apprehension was also highlighted In the recenUyconcluded Nuclear Security Summil at Washing,· Ion (April 12-13, 2D10) which aimed' 10 ensure thai nuclear weapons and weapon·grade male rials were put under lock and key 10 prevenl terrorists gelling them. According, 10 estimates, al:lOull-6 million kilograms of Highly Enriched 'Uranium (HEU) and about 5,00,.000 kilograms 01 Plul.onium are stock-piled presently across the world at different tocaitons, II takes only abo 1.11 25 kilograms HEU or B kiiograrnsPlulonlum 10 make a crude nuclear bomb.

So far as the US approach towards nuclear pr'oliletallon, and nuclear terrorism rscencemec, II includeslhree keyelemenlS. FirSt, the US seeks 10 bolster Ihe nuclear ncn-prollteratlae regime and its center-piece, the 'NPT,. by reversing Ihenuclear ambitions 01 North Korea and tran, strengthening International Atomlc energy Agency (iAEA) sale' guards and:enlorcing compliance >vilh them.

New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START)

A major landmatk in the direcli<)n 01 arms control was Ihe STAHT I signed between Ihe US and Russia in 1991, (II expired in December 1991). In taet, tne Treaty was originally eonceived belweenthe US and the erstwhile Soviei Union in 1981 but unfor1unately ilcould not be enforced. Following this, the US launched its Strategic Delence Inil1allve Programme in 1983 which led 10 increasing Ihe pace 01 nuclear proliferation. Finally. alte( Ihe dismantling 01 the Soviet Union the ;Russia. as Its successor sgned the trealy wi'h Ihe US in 1991. In January 1993, thetwe nauons signed STAAT ;U but. il also could not be brought into loree .. As the US wilhdrewfrom Ihe Anti-8amslic MiSSile (ABM) Trealy, Russia also withdrew from ST.ART II. Th.e Obama admlnlstrallon alter Us commitment lowardsmaking the world ffee lrom nuclear weapons agreed with Russia 10 new START which was signed l1na,lIyon April 8,20,10. The new pact

stipulates. Ihal the number of nuclear warheads Is 10 be reduced 1.0 1550 on each side. while the number 01 deployed andnon·dep1oyed delivery vehicles must not exceed 800 on each side. Thelrealy which is valid for 8. ,period 01 len years sa.ys thai strategic offensive weapons will not be used on Ihe leftitory 01 any third counlry. Although diss.greemenlsslill remain between Russia and Ihe US over missile shield plans, it is expected Ihallhe new treaty will bring nelY level ·01 cooperatIon In the areas 01 nuclear disarmament and arms control. IHowever, II would be advisable lithe two work logeth.er for creating a global missile defence system. The two countries have agreed 10 contlnua dialogues to resolV,e eonflicts on missile defence. The pact certainly reflects new positive trends in lhe US'Russia relatkms advancing 'bila:t.eral cceperatlon to a new level. Another Imporlanlleature altha deal is thai Ihe two ccunntes have a~reed 10 decommission some 01 their InlEH Co.nlinental, Ballislic Missiles (ICBM) and to converi them to space la.unch vehiCles.

One day, the Dog could no lon.ger resist the aloma 01 the rlee and somehow managed to sneak InlO IheElephanl.'sshed,. He atethe grains of sweet rice Ihal leH Irom the Elephanrsmouth. He I'lked thence so much, that he started gojngthe~e daily to eallhe rice', For days, the huge Elephant dldn'\ noilee Ihe small dog; as he was busy enjoying Ihe delicious food.

The Minister roplied.,·Elephanl. keeper has Inlormed me thai a stranger took him away and he deesn't know his whereabouts". The Killg asked, "How can we br.ing back my elephanl's fl'.lend and make him happy again l' The Min.is!er sugges.ted, -Your Malesty, make adeclaralion Ihal whoever has Ihe dog fha.! used 10 live al the royal Elephant's shed will be penal1zed", The King did Ihe same andlhe man who had taken Ihe dog, InSlanUy turned him loose when he heard'he prOClamalion.

As soon as he was Ireed" Ihe Dog ran back as last as he could 10

theElephanf's Shed, TheElephanl was so delighted to see the Dog Ihal he picked his friend up with his trunk and swung him back and lo.rth, The Dog wagged his fail, while Ihe Eleph ani 's eyes spaflded with happiness • The King was content to see 'he elephant happy once again and rewarded the Minister for his wise j,udgment.
