Corruption is Social Evil Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts

In its simplest sense, corruption may be defined as an act of bribery or misuse of public position or
power for the fulfillment of selfish motives or to gain personal gratifications. It has also been defined
as"Misuse of authority as a result of consideration of personal gain which need not be
In recent Centuries India has earned a place among the THREE most corrupt countries in the
world. Corruption in India is a consequence of the nexus between Bureaucracy, politics and
criminals. India is now no longer considered a soft state. It has now become a consideration state
where everything can be had for a consideration. Today, the number of ministers with an honest
image can be counted on fingers. At one time, bribe was paid for getting wrong things done but
now bribe is paid for getting right things done at right time.
It is well established that politicians are extremely corrupt the world over. In fact, people are
surprised to find an honest politician. These corrupt politicians go scot-free, unharmed and
unpunished. Leaders like Lal Bahadur Shastri or Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel are a rare breed
now who had very little bank balance at the time of death. The list of scams and scandals in the
country is endless. Now Recently Before Start 2010 Commen Wealth Games Corruption is playing
major role with commen wealth games. The Bofors payoff scandal of 1986 involved a total amount
of Rs 1750 crore in purchase of guns from a Swedish firm for the Army. The Cement scandal of
1982 involved the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, the Sugar Scandal of 1994 involved a Union
Minister of State for food, the Urea Scam and of course no one can forget Hawala Scandal of 1991,
the Coffin-gate, fodder scam in Bihar or the Stamp scandal which shocked not only the political
arena but the entire society.
Is it possible to contain corruption in our society? Corruption is a cancer, which every Indian must
strive to cure. Many new leaders when come into power declare their determination to eradicate
corruption but soon they themselves become corrupt and start amassing huge wealth.
There are many myths about corruption, which have to be exploded if we really want to combat it.
Some of these myths are: Corruption is a way of life and nothing can be done about it. Only people
from underdeveloped or developing countries are prone to corruption. We will have to guard
against all these crude fallacies while planning measures to fight corruption.
It is not possible to kill or remove the corruption by improving the Social-economic conditions of the
. Because we all know that the most of the people who are corrupted are not economically or
socially backward, surely they will be having a notable social status.
"Despite a decade of progress in establishing anti-corruption laws and regulations, these results
indicate that much remains to be done before we see meaningful improvements in the lives of the
world's poorest citizens."
The following steps should be considered to eradicate corruption:
Greedy business people and unscrupulous investors should stop bribing the political elites.Dont be
either at the receiving or at the bribing end. Political elites should stop putting their private gains
before the welfare of citizens and economic development of their regions. Government should
include a chapter in text books related to corruption and its desire consequences.
We are all need to stop talking about Corruption but we right now start ourself take the initiative and
be Brave ourself. Corruption is going to end only when people like us stand up and speak out.
If we do not take step forward to remove corruption from root, the word developing country will
always be attached with our country INDIA . So we the common man are solution for removing
corruption from our INDIA and hence we will be also helpful in making our country developed.
It is possible..todays generation is willing to change this system. And soon corruption is gone out
from India.Every person should have his own responsibility to avoid corruption
A strong youth movement in the country only can remove corruption and each student should
take a vow to begin this exercise courageously within the family-Former President Dr.A.P.J.Abdul
