You cannot hate a stranger. Negative thoughts are absence of positive thoughts and hatred is only with drawl of love. The very fact you only ‘hate’ someone you loved once it is easy to bring the love back and remove the hatred.
The best period to remove the hatred is the first six months of the year called Uttarayana and in that time the best period is 8 days prior to holi and in mythology the period is called as Holasthak.
In Hindu mythology it has been said that it takes 4 days ( chautha) or 13 days ( tervi) to let go attachments; 18 interactions to let go any doubt (18 chapters of Bhagavad Gita), 9 days for mind body and soul purification (Navratri) and eight days for removing hatred ( Holasthak).
Once decided one should approach the aggrieved person and try to patch up. It is possible that the aggrieved person my hit back initially as he or she may not be ready for the patch up. Go on trying till you achieve the success and as per experience, science and mythology it may take on an average eight attempts to do the dame.
