What is the Jai Jagat?

Jai Jagat means: Victory to All. No one is a winner and no one is a loser. It refers to a common human destiny. For that, people have to peacefully coexist with themselves and other living beings on this planet, recognizing that co-existence is the very condition for human survival “The planet for all people and All people for the planet”gives meaning to the ‘what is Jai Jagat’.

What if it rains?
