There is no religion in Nature as nature itself is a religion of calm, quietness, peace and harmony. Though Hobbes has said that 'nature is red in tooth and claw' suggesting the violence therein. But that violence is not researched and planned and above all not prescribed. Whereas in our society various religions have prescribed certain rules, have described in certain manners and have handed over a planner to the womenfolk. But an objective and detached observation makes us realize that a religion which denies an individual to realize her/his full potential as a human being is only man-made and there is no Godliness in it. Why god created nature ahead of us? To make us behold and learn from it how to create our own humane society based on harmonious and just the relationship. This book is a humble attempt to reveal somewhere and somehow our cankerous vision has failed to interpret it.
