Corruption in India is one of the most menacing threats that our economy has been battling since our independence. At all levels of bureaucracy corruption has seemingly taken its toll and has corroding the structure of our nation. Be it private sector or public sector, Indian people have a tendency of misusing the public position or power and gain personal benefits. When evaluating the cause responsible for corruption, the number seems to be infinite. However the main reason is lack of implementation of the rules and laws and another reason is lack of transparency in bureaucracy and government processes.
Corruption is internalized in our culture, some people who are honest, they dont take bribes but happily willing to give bribes. The ones who are not so rich and are unable to bribe officials dont get their work done on time and their files collect dust in the offices. Corruption is one of the greatest evils that break the backbone of our society.
When I think about corruption, I think about me and you, I think about us and the society, and I also think about those corrupted persons, who are fighting for corrupting the corruption. Can we make our state corruption free? Can we really fight against us? Well like-wise thousands of questions are raised every day by you and me. When it comes to fighting this adversary, the first blood must be drawn by general public, if there are no individuals that pay bribe then the structure automatically resurrects again. The implementation of laws should be stricter and increased transparency must be brought into action. Moreover our state belongs to its youth. Unless our youth becomes vigilant corruption cant be unplugged from our society. One more important factor by which we can eradicate this advisory from the society they are the three key societal members they are the father, the mother and the teacher. If a country is to be corruption free and became a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel that there are these three key societal members who can make a difference.
Qissa-e-ghame hayat na pooch hum say Ghalib
Bas jee rahay hain samjh lo kamal kar rahay hain.
