Though India is a democratic country, we still have to pay to get what is our right. Corruption is the base for each and every evil thing that happens in India. Nowadays, we see news full of corruption scandals by leaders of the country who are ruling the country. Common man is responsible for the corruption, because he has no options left to complete his work without giving bribe. Corruption will not end unless there is an awareness among the people regarding the bad consequences like hike in petrol prices,LPG, and other daily requirements which a common man has to pay for. I would like to conclude with a short story. Once an American, Australian and Indian minister went to GOD. American asked," When will corruption in our country end?" God said,"5 years." Australian asked,"When will corruption in our country end?" God said,"10 years." and finally when an Indian asked,"When will corruption in our country end?" God cried and said,"The world will end but the corruption in INDIA will never end." It is really a serious issue to think upon and take some necessary steps to avoid corruption make INDIA corruption free.

Hi friends, topic is corruption is a we pay for democracy. Corruption is not a new problem in indiaThese corrupts are looting our country for last sixty years. They are nothing but native invaders, thieves and criminals and the single largest threat to the national security. They are not Sahibs, they deserve boot of the masses. According to the standard of any civilized country they deserve at least rigorous life imprisonment. Read the sections below to know how mean they are. India is going through a state of complete anarchy. For every posted news here, there are 1000 similar incidents unreported in the media.

Corruption is not the price of Democracy. Not all the politician or officers are corrupted. But the thing is that we just have to judge who is corrupted and who is not. And don't think it is a tough task, we have to just see the background of the politician who will be our leader, and if we think that all is correct with him then vote for him and if there is something wrong then don't and see the others profile. Because we people only are the responsible for corruption cause we choose them without there past information and if we have all the knowledge about their past then it'll be easy to choose. I think this is a good method for at least decrease the corruption.

The word corruption means the destruction, ruining or the spoiling of a society or a nation. A corrupt society stops valuing integrity, virtue or moral principles. It changes for the worse. Such a society begins to decay and sets itself on the road to self destruction. Corruption is an age old phenomena. Selfishness and greed are the two main causes of corruption. Political corruption is the abuse of their powers by state officials for their unlawful private gain. Societies can fight corruption by letting the state know that they have had enough of it. The authorities move very quickly when the press or the television highlights instances of corruption. Education spreads political and social awareness and these are some factors that help curb the menace of corruption.

At first democracy means "of the people, by the people, for the people" but now it is changed into like this "of the corruption, by the corruption, for the corruption" means anyone who gives bribe to the officials/politicians change the democracy and use it as they like. Here we can't blame only politicians are responsible for the increase in corruption the same part goes for us too, because we are also pouring water for it to spread its roots all over. As one (Varun. Pillai) of the above said "drop drop can create a ocean" first we people has to change later we can blame politicians/others and fight against corruption. So that we can show "Democracy can overcome the corruption".

Against :. I think the current scenario is exactly the opposite of the topic in discussion. I doubt whether the two have any connection. Had we been democratic in the true sense, we would not have been living with evil as the case is. Corruption is rife because we gave birth to it, nurtured it and are now encouraging it to spread its roots everywhere. Democracy is one thing. It enables every citizen to stand up and speak for himself, think rationally and behave intellectually. It is that power which lies in the palms of grass roots irrespective of their caste, creed and religion. On the contrary, it is only Democracy that can uproot corruption if exercised tactfully. It can very well act as means to evade corruption. Corruption today is not prevailing due to democracy; rather such evils have been brought under spotlight because there is democracy. Corruption is prevalent due to vested interests of the leaders of this nation, and to a fault, their sub-ordinates too.

As a responsible citizen I personelly doing my job as per law and informing my neigbours, friends and society members to do the same and at my level best. As rightly said drop drop can make or create a ocean But, politicians and beaurecrats are the criminals who do against of law and justice and practise missuse of power on entire nation. Small small thing like admisson, to get liciense, to get certificate from govt or private firm starts from lay man to educated, rich to poor and they should think and built change and also find out the people who do this malpractise and be treated like a criminal and govt should seize all the assests from the person. It should be telecasted live in the televison. I Think fear will be the last weapon to treat those people

which can stop the coward action in the nation. We want change the entire goverment. People should serve only once in a lifetime as a ruling political leader and all ministers should less then 45 years. See the prime minister of UK - david cameron, president of USA - barack obama. Change the system and change the name :- India is the corrupted and scam country. Every thing is not constant in the world expect the same.

No we cannot make democracy responsible for corruption, but yes democracy has became a major medium for democracy. In democracy all people have right to vote and many a times a member gets elected because he filled the pockets of many with cash and in return got the vote. But still demo is the best form of government. Taking the example of china, it is not necessary that corruption occurs in a democratic countries. So I think the point is clear that the form of govt a country posses is not to be blamed for corruption.

Corruption like anything else always has a giver as well as a taker side. The taker side is totally dependent on the giver side. So if the giver (public) does not provide the taker (politicians) with any opportunities to take bribe them there is very less scope for corruption to prevail. So the saying that corruption is the cost we pay for democracy cannot absolutely true.

We cannot blame democracy for corruption. If we do then we mean to say that end of democracy means end of corruption. Which cannot be justified. If there wouldn't have been democracy we would not have been able to progress the way we want. In China there is communist government but still there is corruption. SO we can't blame democracy for it. At end I would justify my point by saying that "corruption is not the price we pay for democracy" but "corruption is the price we pay for electing wrong candidate".

Corruption is like a chronic desease that eroding our country. Main challenge we are facing how to eradicate corruption form our country. We have understand the facts from where corruption arise. Our political, judicial as well as constitution is reponsible for corruption. Our judicial system is so liberal and complicated so that many people because of their money power managed to escape from alleged charges. In our political their are so many corrupt people who are working for their vested interest. People are unaware about their constitutional rights and just for shake of money and liquor peole chosse the wrong candidate.

As the saying goes "Everyone can stand to adversity, but to check a persons real character give him powers" a person may not be corrupt at the time he was elected what if after being elected and getting all the powers in hand he misuses it or you may say he becomes corrupt. It is not just not enough selecting the right candidate but also making sure that candidate does his work the way it has to be, so if you really want to stop corruption raise your voice every time you find corruption is taking place don't just watch and wa it for others to do something or just ignore whats happening. It is right of each and every individual to raise his voice whenever needed so please to do.

As quoted by Abraham Lincoln that democracy is the government for the people to the people and by the people, it is in simple words the government we deserve. In India corruption is prevalent in almost every sphere so when the politicians get a chance to cash in on the opportunity to make huge sums of money, be it through corrupted means, why would they miss it out? And it is the democracy that provides a liberty to almost anyone to choose, to reject, to oppose, it certainly gives the leaders a shelter to hind behind, because in the end it is the people who are responsible for those leaders, thanks democracy! and hence the result - corruption.

India is the largest democracy in the world. But sadly, it also lists in the top most corrupt countries in the world. But saying that corruption is the price we pay for democracy would be wrong. Democracy enables a citizen to exercise his rights freely. It enables one to take an active part in the socio economic policies of the country. It is only because of democracy that a person can vote for a person who he thinks is suitable for the post. But, unfortunately we are misusing "democracy". As in, we vote for any person just for the sake of giving the vote. And as such, most oft a wrong candidate wins. One more point I would like to put forth. The CM of a certain state in India has openly claimed that of course he resorts to corruption, all politicians do. He is still the CM of that state. This only shows that the people prefer to suffer in silence. Instead of taking action against him we are just not doing anything. This encourages people like "this cm" to indulge in corruption. We cannot blame democracy for having bringing us to this situation. It's only the people, you and I inclusive!

Corruption has spreads it tentacles in each and every field of life. I do agree with the point that corruption is the price we pay for democracy. Politicians have given birth to it and the people are feeding it, in simple words corruption was the gift given to us by the politicians and we have accepted it, today every one want the corruption free nation but no one is ready to take action against it, at one end we are free to do any thing in our country that is just and legal but at the other end we does only those thing which was demanded by the system. And now today corruption has taken a giant face and we people at one end curse it, makes debate over it, wright articles against it but at the other end never hesitate to participate in it. So first of all we need to change our self and take pledge as not to become a part of corruption in our life and as well not let others to become part of it. Jai hind.

According to me it is not a democracy which increase corruption but some corrupt officer in our country who makes the country as a corrupt nation we have been living in the democracy since our independence. How many cases of corruption you heard around 20 or 25 years ago? since last few years we are hearing only about scam. At that time we chose the people and now also we choose the people. And the results are in front of us. We ranked 87 in the corruption index. What about the country which

ranked in top 20. Their people also choosing their leader by voting. So it is not democracy who is responsible for corruption but some corrupt leader. And I think we should remove them not our system.

Corruption is the biggest trauma or you can say the biggest bug that is sucking our country badly. If the point comes out who is responsible for this"corruption is the price we pay for democracy or not". Democracy is our birth right that cannot be slandered at all as making out to be a cause of corruption. What can you expect by legalizing CORRUPTION. Sch statements only seems good in rhetoric. If we really bother ourself for this we must look into our sleeves. Everybody is equally responsible for the corruption. Be it a politician for doing so. Be it all of us ourselves.

In europe there is republican government There is also corruption. As compared to other countries. India is 87th rank in states of world's most corrupt states (china being 42 and united states 68.

Many of us Used to give Votes by seeing that to which parties our neighbour is giving Vote( Is to BJP,CONG or any other Stuffs) to.

Yehh... Privatization will put a check on corruption. More of it... it is a way of thinking of the employees who work in a Government or a private concern. But lets not blame the employees who do this unethical act of taking bribes / unwarranted considerations..!! It is bcuz such employees nurtured or groomed in the wrong ways. The whole responsibility comes on the governing/ controlling bodies. Controllers of Govt offices fail to influence ideologies of their employees on ethical lines like...creating a sense of sincere accountability and clean competition to achieve personal growth in professional life...!!! Employees see no scope of growth in their jobs so they behave like that... The scenario is totally different in private jobs..!!

Having heard all the above comments, my perception is that ""Privatization will lead to Less Corruption" keeping in view the present situation of the country. There is no doubt that the main motive of the companies is PROFIT but at the same time we shouldn't forget that India has achieved at a lot in the field of IT Industry. INDIA is well known for its economy and at the same time India is well known for the corruption in Govt offices too. So, privatization is a pride to our country. When people are getting more money and they know one simple funda"To earn more we have to work more" irrespective of "To earn more we have to take more (Bribe) ". These days in Privatization also, we are getting a lot of extra facilities so we need not to afraid that we will not get pensions and all. Moreover in private sectors one can change its taste ie if one wants to change a company he can, but in Govt sector one has to marry his job even though he doesn't love it. :).

In my point of view privatization leads to corruption only. For eg: privatization in educational sector they give quality of education, facilities, everything;but money their will be more. So all of us need quality in everything;so for quality we turn back to privatization and that may lead some parents to get bribe for getting quality of education for their children. So by developing the quality in everything means both government as well as private sector only corruption reduced to be better.

Now in such situation if a common man goes to a government office he has to bribe that person to get his job done. Because until and unless you bribe them they won't take you seriously. This is corruption which takes place at any level in the industry. In the private sector, employers are bound to strict rules and have to think twice before taking their work lightly. Here they don't have job security so they have to keep on giving their best performance. Also at each level in a private sector people have to answer their seniors and also have to maintain good name of their company which will restrict them from doing anything wrong, because it will indirectly affect themselves. So obviously privatization will lead to decrease in corruption.

Privatization will lead to decrease in Corruption But then the private Companies will only concentrate on the area where profit is maximum .But Govt. Company provide services also where there is not much profit. For eg. Civil Hospitals are in villages also ,but if that department is privatized then the private Company will not concentrate on each village.

Privatization can result into less corruption as there are transparency at different levels of hierarchy, but keeping one thing sure that greed of owner of organisation does not come into picture. Owner of an organisation want to run the organisation for their own profits, they are least concerned with the social benefits until or unless they are forced by the government. In government sector social benefits are at the higher priority by legislation etc. But actually not followed as it should be. Many a times people don't perform their duties honestly, job assurety is of-course plus point of government sector but this make them treating it forgranted. In my point of view some strict policies and management should be enforced in a government sector some what like private sectors so as chances of corruption can be reduced.

Privatization completly will not reduce the corruption rather it would lead over the corruption.Because in greedy of money the owner of any organisation will perform his duty on their own way.He dont think about any rules and regulations.Every person working in the orgation will depend on the owner and he will be able to remove any worker without any difficulty in anytime.Thus this is a major drawback of privatization of any company that there is no any security of job in private sector.But on the other hand there is a security of job in government job.Government pay their worker even after they are not able to do their work.Demerits in government job are that the worker did not perform their duty.So a strict rules should be applied for these things and this can be happens only it is taken under private sector.So it is better to handle any orgationation by both private and goernment for their well performance and reduction of corruption.

Privatization is certain sectors is inevitable as government agencies are not too efficient and plagued by various scam and scandals. But privatizing all and every sector can backfire for our economy as well as the human development index. After all the bottomline of all companies is maximizing PROFIT. Dominance of a company in a sector can result in its wielding a lot of power which can result in no regulation of prices of commodities and services as well as compromise on quality and quantity. In government run institutions corruption is at various levels but in private companies corruption would be at the highest level. In my opinion there isn't any difference. Thus privatization would result in a small section of society using the society as a medium to mint money rather than fulfilling its needs.

Indeed privatization will reduce corruption to certain extent again if and only if the regualtory bodies controlling it are orthodox. We make thousands of rules but what is the use if it is not followed. It all depends on the mentality of people which doesnt only come through education but through good practice and culture along with strict laws. For eg:"two people are walking on road, eating bananas and peeling out its skin and throwing on the way, despite of taking a look on the Dustbin borad just lying nearby. After doing this they say hey this is not America so don't bother just relax". What does that mean people are taking things granted because they are not dealt with strict laws. If the same happens in America, those two will be heavily penalized by traffic police in form of fine or imprisonment. "If the crowd is enough conscious and literate this scenerio won't ocur at all. Use the dustbin when it has ben provided to you. So, both people (first) as well as goverment (second) has to change in their way else we should stay hopeless that's it. This just a small example.

Pension. 2. Retirement benefits. 3. Other perquisites. 4. Job security. Would not be available in privatization.

According to me, privatization is not so important. Because For example, Private companies as well as government companies gives the security but in some private companies if the employees are working, then they get salary until they are working in that firm. One thing is that they get high salary compare to government jobs and they are promote to a best position. But as we compare to government jobs then there we get pensions which we get after we are retired. And that is the main advantage where we feel secure when we are in our old age. So according to me I don't think that it is important that we should have only privatization but only is the thing that people should satisfied and they should get right jobs according to their capabilities.

Yes, according to me privatisation will lead to less corruption because if a sector is get privatised then it will compete with other sectors and try to be better. And if a person employed in private sector were caught in any offence will be immediately dismissed, so a employee have fear of that and this curb him to do offence. But on the other side in a government sector if a employee were caught in any offense then it take so many time to dismiss him. And a employee in pvt. Sector try to improve thier efficiency for getting promotion in thier field. As we can see as an example of mumbai airport (privatised) remains clean but if you see kolkata airport (govt. ) is not well maintained as mumbai airport.

Yes of course privatisation is needed to curb the corruption because the private companies believe in performance more than anything. The PSU's really lack in performance because a lot of people (state, union authorities n finally the politicians) can

interfere with the working and these people are not at all worried about performance, on the other hand private companies are controlled by a handful of highly skilled people which will never let down the company name at any cost so privatisation is unavoidable.

Along with our former telecom minister A raja who is a government authority, there are many private companies executives who has been charged. Corruption is 2 way process.

on concept of making money and maximum profitisation. They don't mind the MONEY is coming in which way either by bribe or by any other illegal way. Moreover a person working with private organisation may also be envolved with corruption because if MONEY or any other facility will come as BRIBE to any one then, it is only the loyality and honesty of that person whether he should accept it or not,there it doesn't matter whether the person is Private employee or Govt. employee.........

Group Discussion on Corruption and Development

The Student Discussion

The group discussion took place on the afternoon of the 4th of September and was presided over by Dr. Raka Arya. The discussion was initiated by our President, Ayush Sharma who began by saying that corruption in India has come to a forefront in the light of the Commonwealth Games scandal which makes it an international affair. He mentioned that in the United Nations Convention on Corruption, which India has signed but not ratified yet, there are many provisions which are not in conformity with our legal system. Thus, we find it hard to create a nexus between the two. For instance, the definition of public servant in the convention is much wider than how we use it. Also, there is no action against a corrupt civil servant after his retirement. He further said that we have been unable to internalize many such concepts which have been laid down in the UN convention.

Our Vice-President asked if anybody could point out exactly when Corruption began. The unanimous opinion was that it has existed since time immemorial and in many forms such as embezzlement, bribery, misappropriation of public funds etc. Students pointed out that there

were three root causes that have led to the rampant spread of corruption - (a) Lack of Awareness - Can we do something? (b) Cynicism - Will anything change even if we try? (c) Acceptance - This is how the system works and this is the easiest way out. This led to the general conclusion that we have internalized the concept of corruption.

It was opined by the students that awareness should be specially at the grass root levels. Not only about the rights and recourses but also as to what are the benefits of raising their voice. Further, it was stressed that there needs to be an increase in the empowerment of people. Most people turn to dishonest means for the sake of convenience. The government must ensure that people get all there services in a timely and adequate manner.

The discussion next turned towards whether Corruption was directly proportional to Development. Some students opined that with the increase in Development, the scope for Corruption increases, however, others maintained the view, that it is only the increase in development which can actually curb the menace of corruption. The example of the US was quoted which was opposed by a student quoting a report of the year 1998 stating that the level of corruption in the US when it came to arms deals was very high. A student also pointed out that Corruption affects development to and one of the biggest hindrances that India faces is the widespread corruption, that is why despite continuous economic growth, India fails to find its place in the list of developed nations.

It was further commented that economic disparity plays a pivotal role in the increase of corruption. A two-sided effort needs to be made, where the citizens are more assertive of their rights and the Government is more accountable, open and transparent. Increase in Egovernance was suggested. It was pointed out that the Central Vigilance Commission is merely an advisory body and what we need today is a stringent and effective implementation of laws. This led the discussion to whether the pioneer of justice - our judiciary itself is free from corruption. The fact that Dinakaran, J. has not been suspended, merely transfered seems to be a proof of the same.

This discussion was concluded by saying that our mindsets need to be changed and more powerful measures need to be suggested in order to deal with corruption on a large scale.

Comments of Dr. Arya

Whereas she felt that the discussion was interesting, she pointed out that a number of things were missing from it. She felt that there was a need to discuss more about Ombudsman, the Right to Information Act and the provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act. The public money is given for a particular objective and if it is not used for that purpose then that is where corruption begins. She further stated that the fundamentals of good governance were Accountability and Transparency. There must be regular declaration of where and how the public funds are used in an annual report or a half-yearly statement. Parties affected by such use have the right to be

constantly informed of how these funds are being used. Vested interests for misuse of these funds may range from getting money, status or position. First and foremost we need to identify such an objective. She differentiated between need and greed. Corruption arises from the need to accumulate wealth. As far as the CWG situation is concerned, she said it was not possible that the head of the ruling party is not aware. They must be held accountable. There is a need to examine the laws related to corruption, whether they are strong, effective and viable enough. This, she said, would be done in the next group discussion.

hi my name is jinesh..... if u take my say on this, it is not mandatory ..... this depends on the person himself and his qualities like temperament... and patience.

Corruption is definitely not "necessary" for success in any sphere. It is only something which is easy. Since it is easy, many weak-minded, lazy, or cowardly individuals fall prey to its temptation. Although such immoral or illegal behaviour may lead to immediate short-term gains, in the long run it only leads to the downfall of the individual. Not only that, if corruption becomes widespread, it eats into the fabric of the society or the environment in which it operates. Thus, widespread corruption in every field will not lead to success but, on the contrary, will guarantee failure, chaos, pain, and suffering for the society as a whole.

So, that means you support 99% of the politicians who misuse their political power for their petty vested interests at the cost of the people of our country. You support those corrupt officials who tamper with evidence and help criminals get away after committing heinous crimes like murder and rape. You support cheap individuals who aldulterate food and cheat the common man at the cost of his health. You support nepotism and not merit or hard-work. You support thousands of such individuals who get a fake MBBS degree and play with the lives of innocent people. You support such people who open unlawful private educational institutions and cheat poor people after sucking out the little money that they have. These small examples are just the tip of the iceberg. When you are making a strong statement like that, I suggest you to please give it a little more thought. When you say that you believe that curruption is necessary, you are spitting on the laws of the country; you are undermining the value of ethics; and you are missing the big picture altogether. Just imagine if most people on earth were corrupt (thinking that corruption was necessary)? What would happen? Anarchy and

utter chaos. This is because no one would do his task or duty as he is supposed to do it. No one will be able to trust anyone anymore. Nobody will be responsible anymore. Our society is still functioning essentially because most people on earth are still responsible and good. The day this gets reversed, our human society will crumble to pieces. Think about it.

Hello sowmya, I think you are strongly protesting my statement. You cannot name any person as a corrupted person without knowing about an uncorrupted person.Gandhiji is great because of britishes only.If there was no british person you might not here the name of gandhiji. In a movie one person will be named as hero because he will be fighting against the evil(corruption).In one word, what is the meaning of success?............Reaching the goal or destiny against all odds.So that odd is necessary for you to be named as a successful person.In this topic that odd is Corruption.

It seems, you have misunderstood the topic. The topic here means: is it necessary to use illegal or immoral ways in every or any sphere to climb the ladder of success?

i strongly not in favour of corruption used as a ladder to get succes in life b'coz if d person is not honest towards his/her work than success does not mean it.......

I would never agree to that say... Anything is possible by anyone...Success never depends on anything else other than the individual's ability...Corruption can never aid mankind in anyway to pluck the fruits of success... The only way and the best way to eradicate corruption is to instill tonnes and tonnes of moral values and to make them aware of the significance of hardwork...

Its not whether u are corrupt or not, its how much and whether u show it or not... cos i m sure that everybody in this world is corrupt in one way or the other... Be it buying tickets in black, or giving a 50 Rs note to a policeman to avoid ur licence being taken away or anything else...

Everyone is corrupt, its only a matter of how much and whether u show it or not... At times, lot of people even dont realise it... cos its normal for them and they think its not corruption... Using a reference to get a job is also corruption in its own way... hence i wud say that u cannot measure whether u succeeded with or without corruption as there is no definite definition of corruption... its person specific... Take for eg our politicians, they are all corrupt but some of them show it and some dont... I personally like Laloo Yadav even when we all know he is corrupt... Cos he works hard and produces result... All we want is results, whether they come thru corruption or not is secondary... Success is success... Be it with corruption or without, unless and until u are not harming a person its all a fair game as everyone plays it and no one is non corrupt... -Mayur

In my opinion its not the corruption that helps someone in rising , it is the hard work and luck that matters but u can say that it give a small lift

towards progress but when u see that u are getting good results u become habitual of this. But had u ever thought this thing that are u able to answer ur inner voice that whatever u are doing is right or wrong? since we know that corruption is main disease that had infected punjab to a great extent . so in my opinion as far as possible corrupt decsions in everyday life itself should be avoided as far as possible.........

as every coin has two sides....having a corruption to achieve a ladder of success may be fair smetimes.....dont u think soumya? I even personally think that there is hardly any person who has has been wrkin without ne corruption....... talkin abt gandhiji....i accept that he was amongst the person who gave us freedom ....but did u ever imagine that if he wouldnt have followed life without corruption there would hve been no indo pak seperation.....!

Make yourself clean and dont get indulged in any corruption, neither give any oppurtunity to others from your side to get into corruption and a day will come when everyone will think like this and there will be no corruption. Most important thing is dont wait for others to be honest, start from yourself. Namita Jha Editor ISC Aamchi Mumbai

Very well said Namita, we always wait for others to be honest and dont see at ourself, first we should clean ourself and then point a finger towards other if we will do so, then I dont think we will need to point finger at any one.

yes namita you are right honesty should start from within preaching what one practices will be more accepted than a mere advice a living example will help to bring about changes .today corruption has become a way of life there are still few people who stick on to honesty and anti corruption the ones who do corruption need not be really bad ones on the contrray they may be doing it just because everyone esle is doing it these can be changed by live examples and constant motivation lets stride to make india anti corruption country. start now.!

well corruption i agree is a problem which india today but then who isnt facing this problem. its just that in other country they take a more sophisticated "avtaar"(look). but saying that i cant shy away from the fact that india remains one of the most corrupt countries of the world.

one way to reduce can be first by instilling fear of the law in the minds of government servants so that they think twice before asking for bribe. for this the investigation agency have to pull up their socks as the conviction rate for corruption cases is pretty low. and then their salaries should be increased so that they can make their ends meet.

Corruption.? well it has spread throughout India to all nooks and corners... Either we give bribe or we accept..Corruption can only be eliminated when we stop giving bribes. But it is very difficult nowadays... All the officials in high posts got used to bribes.. They ask money for doing their job.. For which they are paid by the government itself... So lending bribery must be stopped then only corruption can be reduced.... Obviously it can be reduced , but cannot be removed completely. Vijay.G

It is really hard to stop corruption as it has deeprooted in the society.Many solutions have been provided by a lot of experts but nothing has really worked.So many films have been made on this topic. Almost every film has showed a way out some of them being worthful but nothing worthwhile has happened.So according to me it's not possible to eliminate corruption. Regards,

Really its a very healthy topic to discuss but very unhealthy to country. In all departments from smaller groups to bigger groups this corruption is main thing

nowadays. It has become a vital part of all of our life. Main reason is we want to make things easy and without any effort. Only way is every individual should understand their humanity and perform their duty than to look for shortcuts to bring up. Or else a true INDIAN as in the film only can stop all this.

Its not that much simple to stop corruption friends. First we should not give any bribe to others and should make our friends also to do the same and we should fight against those who gets bribe.If you are not giving why should he get the Money and Every body's account should be like visible if we want we can check the account of every body the Money should be transferred through card only. Then no body can cheat others.

Namita said very well, start from urself and one day it will really vanish. Its an individual who has to first take the step. Rather than to think and opt other ways to stop courruption its an indvidual who can avoid curruption and make aware to other peoples too reagrding this. One should always think that "All well that ends well".

Its really tough to stop corruption in a country with huge population like india. I agree with Namita that first we should be clean and then let others also follow the same. But if that is the case then if suppose there is any government application of our's to be processed which actually takes 1 week for processing then it takes atleast 3 months without corruption. Hence its not single individual but the system should change. Here i dont want to discourage someone who really wanting to follow certain guidelines to stop corruption. But ultimate thing is that corruption in india is at its peak stage, some miracle should

happen to clean our entire system. First change should come up in the politics and the entire government sector then only we can achieve this. For this to happen India should encourage young leaders to be p[art of politics, where in its never going to happen because we all know the reasons.

Amarender, its a group of indviduals who makes the system, an indvidual can stop corruption at his/her level first, then he/she can advice and guide other indviduals to stop corruption which are a part of the system, just see if all indviduals of a system are not into corruption then how can be a system corrupted, so if a system is not corrupted then govt. will also not be corrupted. This thing can take time to stop corruption in India but if it happens truly then definately the level of corruption will be less one day.

People like us can only stop the corruption in India. In india corruption is the big problem behind India. Nobody are able to solve this problem .I think that plitician are the main source of this problem .In india every sector suffer from this demone corruption.But only educated people can stop corruption because they know the situation or loss of country due to this problem.

We are after a butterfly trying to grasp it. And we are also trying to pursue a dream which is GLOBALLY absurd. No matter what? One's wants keeps on increasing and people are never satisfied with what they have. Somebody great adages, "Be satisfied with what you have and be contend for what you are". But people knows no bounds. nothing has limitation. So rich gets richer and poor, remains poor. Even If stopping corruption seems an absurd obsession for humans to focus on then why not leave the work all to MACHINES? Why not start robots or zoom cameras over the desk? Globalization starts right from your door, There are millions of 'YOURS', I mean it starts

from our own home, The smallest community of the world. Parents should configure the child as it all depends upon NNN-Nutrition, Nurture and Nursing. Corruption should be discussed regularly at Nation's Decision making Meetings. The rules should keep on changing for best(Let it not be preservative and conservative). As corruption is also very lethargic, Government should allow free access to for all people to raise their murmur into shouts. Government should initiate services like 911(Emergencies) to allow people to directly give the names of the corrupter and Govt. should make sure that it gets updated to people as well through media-The magic multipliers. AND ABOVE ALL, THE ROLE COMES TO EDUCATED PEOPLE. THEY CAN ONLY ABRIDGE THE ENDS TO THE PROBLEM. IT'S ALL IN THE HANDS OF LITERATE POPULATION TO MAKE A TOPIC CONTROVERSIAL AND GLOBALIZED. LET US SEE INDIA GO WITH THE RIGHT PATH. ALWAYS REMEMBER THE POEM "WHERE THE MIND IS WITHOUT FEAR', It was a poem for all the generations to come. It teaches us to love and worship the country and the people and it has bountiful of of advices blaring. Let us hear our voice grow from community to society and to the country and see the world nodding it's head in rapport. AMEN!!!

In order to stop corruption in India,youth should a step forward and try to work together.Youth,due to their large population and abundant energy can effectively fight corruption. We always talk about the corrupted system,politicians and the people who are contributing in rusting the iron of nation's strength,but we ourselves don't want to take action.Youth should enter politics and enforce their ideas in stopping the various forms of corruption. More than the people who are corrupting the nation,it's the people who are doing nothing and just watching the game are responsible for increasing corruption.It's always said,the one who tolerates wrong things is equally liable to punishment as the one who is doing the wrong things. If youth of the country decide firmly,they can change the way the nation thinks.They can change the way in which the problems have been dealt till date. Thus,youth can contribute a lot in fighting against corruption.

Corruption is a more generic word where it describes as the flaw in the system. It is very challenging task if you are aiming to eliminate corruption from the system. But of course as a youth force we can affect it and can make it more reasonable eliminated whereas my view is 100% removal might seem impossible. More and more youth can join politics and lead the nation in a developing face. There must be a rationale in every field to have abetter tomorrow where you can rarely find corruption. Let's hope and act for it! Madhusudan G S
