Corruption in India (Part 4)

November 26th, 2009 · 11 Comments

India needs to be made free of corruption before it can become developed. But  the entire existing Indian governance ecosystem will prevent this from happening.

Seen from the outside, it is quite clear that no honest business person will ever make it the top and be able to clean up the system. There are too many vested interests for that to happen.

The change has to come from within the political system. Someone needs to rise and be supported by the masses. That person has to make only one promise – to ensure a clean government – and all the development that should have happened in six decades but did not will happen in five years. That’s how much money is there in the system.

It is not going to be easy because the other politicians, whose livelihood depends on their being in power, will not allow such a person to rise to the top. This is where we need to come in. We, the People, need to say enough is enough. And we need some among us to help drive this change. Are we there yet? No way. Because we have learnt to somehow manage to survive in this corrupt system.

 Continued tomorrow.

    Hi Rajesh,

    I hope your intention is not to point to Rahul Gandhi as that man.

    Since times of Great Jawahar Lal Nehru, Amethi in UP has been the seat of power for gandhi family.

    I would like to mention that As of 2001 India census, Amethi had a population of 12,808 with an average literacy rate of 59%, lower than the national average of 59.5%;
    with 59% of the males and 41% of females literate. 17% of the population is under 6 years
    of age.

    One can very well imagine if gandhi family could not turn their seat f power into 100% literacy, forced or otherwise, there is nothing revolutionary in store for nation after Rahul Gandhi or Priyanka Gandhi become prime minister.

    I hope I am not playing a spoiler here at the climax.

    Kind Regards,

    I have one basic question “where is the money going which the govt has recovered by raiding all the corrupted persons???”

    How many of us have a brief to the point answer for the above question.

    If the right person is able to get the transparency for the recovered money then surely we will be on the right track towards a developed country.

    Corruption is all-pervasive and cannot be eradicated completely and irrevocably. It exists everywhere in every stratum of society. However, most people associate corruption with the government, police, legal system and other entities that are somehow related to the control and allocation of public resources.
