Q.

Corruption in India is at its peak. Some miracle should happen to clean our entire system. Mainly leaders are responsible for it. Rules are made to remove corruption but they are not implemented properly. Rules are made and closed in the files. When law makers are law breakers, who will take action against the corruption? Lack of intense public outcry and the absence of strong public forum to oppose corruption allow it to reign over people. The old ideal of morality, service and honesty has become history now. What measures would you suggest to stop this menace?

Corruption is a common occurrence in India; it is as common as it is in many other developing nations. Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index indicates that India ranks 84 among 180 countries. The corruption, however, is on the decline is evident from the fact that in 2002 the index was 2.7; in 2008 it has risen to 3.4. Especially in Indian politics and bureaucracy, the roots of corruption are deeper than what it appears to be.

A study across eleven public services has revealed that Kerala is the least corrupt state in all these services. Himachal Pradesh is less corrupt. In Gujarat, services such as education, judiciary and land administration ranks as more corrupt compared to other states. However, in other services, Gujarat ranked better.

Though it is not possible to root out corruption; yet it can be trimmed and kept within the tolerable limits. Right to information act is one provision to take care of corruption. It is necessary to vest more powers in Vig ...more

There is a saying " Evil breed evil". A corrupt one manages to breed 100 corrupt ones. Now take for the example of Tamilnadu, where before 1966 corruption is almost negligible, it ranks among the most corruption prevailed state in India.You have to shell out your money to obtain a ration card,F.I.R ,birth certificate, death certificate etc etc. The reason being the corruptness of the two major political parties DMK and ADMK. They are now entered into a war to bribe the voters. the voters finding that there is no alternate force there to them accept and vote for the candidate who gives more. It is in rumour that one party is planning to spent Rs 2000/00 per vote in the ensuing assembly election in 2011 and optimistic to win 200 out of the 234 seats in the making. They are giving free color Tvs free autos, free gas,free electricity, Alcohol shops are ran by the government. How to curb such nonsenses? First we have to vote against people with corrupt,criminal and immoral records. It is mo ...more

Let people facing criminal charges be debarred from contesting the elections. Political parties giving tickets to persons of doubtful integrity be rejected outrightly.

People needs to shed the layers of traditions which makes the loose common sense. If every tradittional values allows to earn money then why not familly planning which is the main reason behind colossal population growth. Nothing can be done on this front to avert human cruelity on their own species. Peoples mind has no sapce for love and care, It just think over his own comfort. Old saying is resonating and ready to repeate its action of abolition kaliyug. How can one see a small bare kid on road begging for bread and butter, but have to see doing nothing.

Instead of loud talks and preaching notions..one should ponder over the facts as to why we have been degarded to such an extent. Unless we practise morality and ethical values in our day to day chores..and do not get lured away with petty motives and interests.. this menace can not be curbed..and present time irony is this that every one keeps his eyes blindfolded as far as his unetical ways and practices are concerned..and simultaneously makes a hue and cry over other people's behaviour.
In present society.. people have accepted it as their part of life and manage to live with it.( and also love it..at times ).and unfortunately , today..that .man is only non-corrupt..who doesnt get the opportunity to become so.

Dear Sumati Gayaki,
Good morning.
It is The Corruption, Indias great weakness, responsible for wide economic disparity and facilitates black money and anti social activities. It eats away vast economic resources that could be otherwise socially employed for nation building.
**THE CORRUPTION, is Nations invisible enemy no.1. **

Many use a position of trust for dishonest gain. World Bank describes that abuse of public power for private gains is corruption. In fact it is a multi-faceted evil, which gradually kills a system. A basic conflict between the ethos and system has weakened the Indian people. The feudal outlook of the ruling class has polluted the peoples mindset, which judge the status of an individual on his capability to flout the law to favour them. The constitutional right to govern the state has been taken for granted as a right to corruption. It is so much so that corruption has almost become an accepted reality and a way of life in Indian society and resulted into m ...more
