INITIATION OF COOPERATION BEGINS FROM OUR HOME (FAMILY)
From the beginning of the existence of civilization, humans have learned about the benefit of togetherness. At that time, it was for protection from the wild animals and unpredictable elements of nature. Then with the advent of fire, the man protected himself from wild animals by creating fear of fire in the animals. Subsequently, he domesticated the animals and also came to know as to how to subsist with the elements of nature too. The survival of the fittest was the Mantra at that time. But thereafter, with further discoveries and inventions man evolved, new institutions like families and communities came into existence. Thus a need was felt for mutual cooperation in the spirit of interdependence and cooperation.
A Song of Ascents. Of David. Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!
This cooperation starts from family as a unit where all the members get their respective cooperation in order that the purpose of family succeeds which is procreation, learning the right mores of behavior, value system, cultural mores, members cooperate with each other for subsistence and also importantly to transform the family traditions to younger generations. All the members of the family interact with each other for the spread of culture, maintaining social order, upkeep of human values in order to maintain the spirit of cohesion and cooperation. All these traits integrate all members for a common cause or purpose. All these are learned in the family itself.
How best we can keep going in the family as a unit is known to everybody. It is on the basis of give and take. In the family some earn, some perform domestic jobs and others, being in old age. have to be looked after. It is on the basis of cooperation and adjustment with each other. From the evolution of humans, man has been cooperating with each other because no family, no society or community could survive and flourish without the cooperation of each other.
IN FAMILY LIFE ANY MEMBER COULD MAKE DIFFERENCE
In our neighborhood, I happened to meet a couple, who has a son of about three years old. The couple informed me that there used to be arguments between them previously but lately it is not happening. When asked about the reason. The answer baffled me altogether. They gleefully informed me that the reason for not having hot talk or arguments is due to their son. Whenever there is a hot talk, their son just intervenes and cries loudly till until they stopped. Now, there are almost no arguments between them and there are harmony and understanding between the couple.
COOPERATION AMONGST THE MEMBERS OF THE SOCIETY
After family life, there comes the community or social life, which is the conglomeration of families with different religions, castes, people speaking different languages but they just integrate for a common a cause. They maintain cooperation in order to get things done. The neighborhood is one such important constituent of a community. It is well said, we can change our blood relation but we cannot ever change our neighbors. They stand by us in thick and thin. Whenever something untoward happens, it is our neighbors only who would provide us assistance and then our relations could be reached.
Society is the voluntary association or company or organized group of individuals working for a common interest, beliefs and serving their common cause. These social groups get organized and build bridges between different groups by way of interaction with each other. An individual’s performance is recognized and respected in the society in which he/she lives.
In the society, one gets cooperation from others for a common purpose. Then society chooses their representatives who formulate laws which work for the protection of the citizenry from those who do not obey the laws of the land and are inimical also ensures the protection of borders from the foreign intrusions.
SPIRIT OF COOPERATION REMOVES CONFUSION AND CONFRONTATION
When we work in a spirit of cooperation, we do not have cut-throat competition among the members of the society. This also removes or burns the desires and we perform our Karmic deeds with the total detachment which is in sync with the Bhagwad Gita ‘action without attaching with the fruits of our action’.
