Corruption in India

India has the dubious distinction of being one of the ten top corrupt countries of the world. The malaise is top deep and wide to be eradicated so much so that common people have become despondent to the point of apathy. India has become a country of scams, scandals, corruption, graft, and gratification. Today it is the eighth-most corrupt country and if the situation is allowed to drift and go further out of control, it mats soon ascends higher ranks of corruption and dishonesty. What an honors to and distinction in the 50th year of our independence, when we are celebrating the golden jubilee! Bribery, gratification, illegal donations, kickbacks, etc. are now the order of the day. They have become endemic, part, and parcel of our life. Go to any department, ministry, office,school⅗, college, police station law court, authority, hospital, mortuary, cremation ground, or any other place of work you can think of, you will find corruption ubiquitous.


Even accident victims are not spared. People involved in train or place accidents are robbed and plundered in very tragic and helpless conditions even by those who are supposed, to be honest, helping, and defender of the law and order. Can there be more degrading situations than this? Sometimes it looks as if the situation has reached the point of no return but then the inner conscience says" no and urges to fight it out as did color prime minister I.K Gujral in his independence address to the nation on 15th August 1997 from the ramparts of the red fort. The prime minister has given a clarion to end this menace of corruption. Like him, all other honest Indian citizens, officials, and workers hang their heads with shame. None should be spared, not even the highest. There should be transparency in decision making and implementation of policies. There should be one window clearance in big and vital contracts and licenses. The right to information should find a place among fundamental rights. Nepotism, red-tapism, favoritism, etc. should be dealt with an iron hand. The public should be aroused against the corrupt so that the people in the authority do not become a law into themselves and hold the country to ransom by their corrupt, selfish, and narrow-minded practices. This is the only way to have a responsive government and clean leadership.
