    Default The cancer of corruption in India

    Corruption is just like a cancer for a great Nation like India. As it grows, it pushes the nation towards destruction. What India need is chemotherapy in the form of a mass movement that will save our nation from this killer disease. We may have to lose our hair as a side effect but it will be a negligible side effect in our way to save the nation.

    The corrupt people (Including the Indian Politicians , Ministers and bureaucrats ) must be brought to book. But ironically, the police force responsible for maintaining law and order situation is one of the most corrupted ones. The Indian law and judiciary that is responsible for punishing the corrupted people is also not free from corruption charges. So, who will bell the cat ? Do we need a real life Hero as portrayed in the movie “Nayak”? The movie may be too dramatic. But it has the spirit to actuate every Indian to take a bold step.

    Strict laws to check Corruption in India is the need of the day.

    The persons who eat up public money must be punished. Another effective step will be to deny the right of opening bank accounts in Swiss banks or other foreign financial institutions. The corrupted persons will not be able to deposit their money earned by them in a corrupted way. It will reduce corruption in a radical way. Has our Government has the guts to formulate such laws?

    Default corruption is a root cause for every evil!

    It is needless to say that corruption is the root cause for every prevailing evil in India.. you see corruption every where these days from civil services to politicians and corporate world. To deal with this we all have to come togetehr and stand agaist it! But it happens that the more we say the less we do.. So it will be much better that we change ourselves rather than complaining about others regarding corruption..

    hey corruption is everywhere almost in every country. But what is happening is that everyones knows it but no ones is ready to accept.

    When you Drive a vehicle without a license in the western country? You would be penalised heavily or you even be dragged to jail?
    In India if you are driving without a license all you need to have is a 100 rs note orelse the phone number of someone who is working in the police department?

    indeed this vice has engrossed the country and needs to be taken care of very soon . the latest example being shashi tharoor who blatantly used his power to rake moolah from IPL . all such person must be sacked immediately and need to be taught a proper lesson .

    Default Rid India of corruption

    This is a debate that will rage on for a long time. I understand the sentiment when Indians react against foreigners (or NRIs like me!) criticizing the culture of corruption. While it is natural to shout "hypocrite" - every other country suffers from corruption in form or another - I do not believe this is the right response. India should not compare itself to the other nation's standards, they should create their own high standards. This is a crucial and exciting time for India, and ridding the country of corruption will expedite it's emergence as global player to be reckoned with.

    very true but the most shocking thing is that even Indian Army which is also corrupt I guess this is the most dangerous threat to India and its integrety

    Default Casteism is the cause of corruption in India

    I do believe Corruption is a cancer of Country, but this corruption has come out from the age old caste system of the country. In fact the caste system in itself emerged from the corruption among the people of the past. People were treated unequally in the past & that inequality was created by either force or by the crookedness of the landholders. These landholders still exist in the villages. Now they exist either as sarpanch or richer landholders of the past have converted themselves to Industrialist. Even if you go to the villages that force to maintain social order still exist. Ranveer sena is one such example.

    As a result money sent to villages for development is intercepted by these people & used to benefit their own people.

    Westernized life style is also increasing the thirst for money which is also a cause of corruption. Now everyone wants A/c & luxurious cars. Satisfaction in one's life has ended.

    Default We the people are responsible

    I don't think the caste system or the government has much to do with corruption. We are the Government. In my opinion, the greed, impatience and selfishness of people [us] is the main cause. Also, ignorance about the RTI Act is one major factor. We can easily fight corruption with RTI, but it's a sad thing that people want their jobs done in a quicker and easier way, irrespective of whether it affects our country or not. We are responsible and like Gandhiji said, we should be the change that we want to see in the world.

    Default Corruption - Ways to handle

    Agreed. Corruption is biggest problem in the country. Though corruption is prevalent in all fields, Political corruption is the king of all of them. Important thing is to understand that it can not be cured by a hard law or any thing. Root cause for this menace is:

    1. Disparities in the levels of awareness and knowledge in the country.
    2. Complicated nature of the rules and Laws

    To have a control on the political corruption should be foremost item in our agenda. This can be achieved mainly through:

    1. Increased participation of ordinary and decent people in politics, there by gradually knocking out the corrupt guys out of positions of power. Ordinary and decent people should infiltrate the political parties and break the strangle hold of corrupt elements on the parties. (Guys, frankly a political party can be as good as the people who man it)

    2. Local government empowerment will reduce the stakes for political corruption significantly and make the system really transparent and easy to understand for the common man.

    Regards,
    Weekend Politician
