Corruption is rampant in all over India be it in the government administration, private organisations or public. It is present at all levels economic, social and administrative.
In governmental administration the people in power are least interested in the interest of citizens as a whole. The news of various scandals has become very common. Everyone starting from the clerk to the higher authorities of the company is involved in corruption directly or indirectly.
For example – In India bribes have become the easiest way to get the work done. People offer bribe to the clerk to meet the officials. Parents bribe the principal to get their child admitted in good school. Youth bribe the people in power to get job. People also bribe the pandit or the authority in temple so that they are allowed to visit the temple before than the others do.
During the election we see political parties offering various things like money, food, alcohol to the citizens to collect their vote and to win the election. It also includes violence murder and kidnapping.
Mixture in edible materials or the other things are also a form of corruption. The edible things that we buy today are not pure. It is leading us to various diseases. Mixture in spices, stones in cereals, black stone in black pepper are some common example. Shopkeepers use these tricks for their economical benefit.
Corruption has become a part of our life in each and every step we see that somehow we are involved in it. Corruption is making our country weak.
It is not that only the government is responsible for corruption but we citizens are equally accountable for it. We need to come together and look for the loopholes; respect the rules and regulation which govern us, have patience and also need to demand for the transparency in the governance.
