Corruption in any form is a Tool for Destruction

Updated on September 22, 2016

Public rally against corruption

Can we remove Corruption?


The word corruption is something disreputable that we always come across in our day to day life, whether it reveals in politics or is seen in our regular jobs. Corruption exists in almost all the countries of the world. All of us need to take part in the movement to eradicate the corruption. Also, all of them need to be made the center of attraction before the society and the medium for their act of corruption. The question is that, we always come across this word, but is there any way out we can get rid of these termites that are eating up a country’s future and making it unhealthy?

Real victims of Corruption

We need to be helpful to the weaker section of the society who are the real victims of corruption. Do we really think that only going against the politicians and passing bills by the parliamentary committee of a democratic country or electing a correct ruler or a leader would lead its country and remove corruption from its root permanently?.

Kill the termite and chase the thieves of corruption

In my view, only electing a good leader or a ruler would not remove corruption as a whole from its root because they can show us the right path and in a big country that have its own huge and special problems, we cannot expect from the leaders heading the Govt., to reach every person and keep a watch on the measures taken to remove the termite called Corruption' from its Country, City, State or the World. But it is agreed by all that politicians and greedy business tycoons are the backbone of corruption world over.

Don't get rid of corruption in a shortcut

A country and its responsibilities do not only fall on the shoulders of the political leaders of that country because the country doesn't only belong to them but it is also a responsibility of all us. We should not only blame one person or a body of people, but should understand that if the corruption has become a part of higher level and a country is getting affected – its present, future, everything is in danger, then they are not solely responsible for all these things. If we want to remove the corruption from its root, we will have to work hard together towards this and first remove corruption from its root that is lying in our day-to-day life and within us. It is not possible for a single person to remove corruption as removing corruption has become so difficult because we all have adopted this as a habit in our daily life. For some reasons or the other, we adopt this method to do our desires, dream and to get rid of problems in a shortcut way. I can just make my friends count few examples at a go:

Count few examples of corruption

Ø When caught in a traffic jam and we are asked to show our driving license, we prefer usually to bribe the traffic officer or get rid of spending more time in arguing or settling up with him.

Ø When we must to get some work did from a person and we know that there is a difficulty in it, we prefer bribing such person(s) to get our work done very easily.

Ø We even in the name of donation do not stop bribing schools and some of them also entertain this practice in the name of donation when it's time for admissions of our children.
In a short, we bribe or follow corruption everywhere in our day-to-day life, so how can we say that the leaders or the political bodies are only responsible for corruption in a country?

Set an example for others

Giving chance to eligible people at work place and only following people whom we like is also a part of the corruption. Wherever we go, every second of our life we practice corruption, so going against only a particular group of people, doing hunger strikes will not help us until we become real enemies of corruption and each one of us starts thinking that we are the leaders of the country and our aim are to set an example for every other person. Being a part of corruption or not raising voice against it, is equal in every sense.

Charity begins at home

As it is always said that “Charity begins at home”, we should always understand that the fight corruption can only be fought with vigor and vitality to kill it from its root that is possible only when we all start a revolution and stop even supporting this kind of practice and activities at a very lower to a higher level. Rules and Regulations – disciplines and laws may be equal for all, supporting terror in any ways, selfish thinking may be stopped and a voice against wrong issues are the few first steps that may be taken up by any of us, every person, people and all our countrymen towards a healthy future.

Role of younger generation a must

At the end, the way to eradicate corruption is possible only when the society and young youths of today promise to themselves to contain it and bring a clean environment for the growth of the country and its people. If we all are united and the young generation is determined to rank the eradication of corruption from the country, it will benefit a common man and would lead the country to a new height as well.

Report for Bribe anonymously

While the young generation is out on the street supporting people who are fighting against corruption. Yet, many of them say it is okay to give a bribe and the rest of them do not agree to bribing If we go by figures, we are on the 'top ten'. The side effect of corruption is very adverse and severe The society will never feel normal or many of them may remain depressed, anxious or uncertain about the future of a State and Country. We need to change the way and take a firm stand to discontinue bribing completely and it will be perhaps the only way to change every body's life style..

Bad Habits

It is very easy to acquire bad habits like smoking, drinking, chewing of tobacco and many other bad things. People living in cool and cold climates and some in the hot climates take alcohol. As it is not a necessity, millions of people have given up these bad habits once for all. Things which may be very good when only done from time to time, tend to become very harmful when done too often and too much. Overall the effect of these bad habits is very bad as it damages the liver, weakens the mental powers and lessens the general energy of the body of a human being. Corruption in any form is similar to the bad habits which eats up the nation and is a tool for other destruction.

    As you know most of the communities (Bengali or Tamils) in this sub-continent are infected by 'Culture of Poverty(hopelessness)' syndrome, irrespective of class or economic strata, lives in pavement or apartment. Nobody is seriously ashamed of or regret the deep-rooted corruption, decaying general quality of life, worst Politico-Governance, bad work place, weak mother language, filth, continuous consumption of common social space (mental as well as physical, both). Do not ever look for any other positive alternative gesture/values to perform a real way of parenthood - deliberately stop giving birth to any child him/herself till the entire society improves up to the mark, co-parenting children those are born out of extreme poverty, instead. We are becoming parents only by self-procreation - mindlessly, blindfold (supported by some lame excuses), depriving the children's fundamental rights(of a decent & caring society, fearless & dignified living). We are being driven by the very animal instinct, pushing persons for a nasty living, indulging the entire community to go perish. If the Bengali people ever opt for a freedom from vicious cycle of poverty, need to involve in Production of Space(Henri Lefebvre), form a positive sentiment to overcome the inherent ‘hopeless’ mindset, definite application of human dignity, decent & fair Politics would certainly come up. – SB, 16/4, Girish Banerjee Lane, Howrah -711101.

    Working to change the government is very important. It is very hard, but it is the only way.

    One person (such as the president) can't make a difference. But the key to change in this world is the power to believe--that's everyone's problem. If everyone believes and comes together in the end, then great things can be achieved.

    Many think that world peace is unattainable; that's only because that they don't believe in it. One person affects another; people go throughout their lives hating and being hated by others, because when they get hurt, they learn to hate. In order to understand one another, we have to experience the same pain. We're all human beings in the end; why can't we learn to love and understand one another? We've all experienced the pain of being human. It seems people of today are too far gone to grasp that simple fact.
