I am a Textile Technocrat having done my Diploma in Textile in Textile Technology a 3 and 1/2 year course in Govt SKSJTI Bangalore.

Any Govt Office 99% are Corrupt.

Any corruption is National and monitered by all the persons.

Why is that we can't stop corruption.?

Because we are in a hurry.

Why are we in a hurry.?

That's our way of life and nature.

Nowhere you will see a 'Q' except when police is present.

How come police can stop corruption by making people stand in 'Q'.?

No they take money and let you go from other closed gate or something.

So police men are corrupt.?

Oh yes few are in jail with the same persons they caught snatching a gold chain from a lady talking on her cell phone or waiting for a Bus.

This is pea nuts compared to Rs.35,00,000 Crore Black Money parked in Tax free countries maintained by corrupt world leaders including a ver powerful country.

How can we stop corruption.

Simple stop printing Rs.1,000 and Rs.500 Notes and ask people to surrender with in a time frame.You may recover the same amount as that which is kept in Tax Free Countries.

How does that help.?

Now its easy to carry Rs.1,00,000 in a pocket with Rs.1,000 notes.If its Rs 100 its impossible to carry in your pocket with a bulge.

To keep Rs.10,000 crore you need a godown.That is the money that is stacked in all our political bosses and powerful beaurucrats.Not to mention Swamiji's and Math Heads.They have not only Indian currency but that of many.

So what can we do to stop corruption.

When they are caught HANG THEM IN PUBLIC.

See the drop,take a Test Drive in Bangalore any Govt Office.

      Nearly all the communities in India (such as Bengali), are succumbed in 'Culture of Poverty'(a theory introduced by an American anthropologist Oscar Lewis), irrespective of class or economic strata, lives in pavement or apartment. Nobody is at all ashamed of the deep-rooted corruption, decaying general quality of life, worst Politico-administrative system, weak mother language, continuous absorption of common space (mental as well as physical, both). We are becoming parents (mindlessly) only by blindfold self-procreation, simply depriving their (the children) fundamental rights of a decent, caring society, fearless & dignified living. Do not ever look for any other positive alternative behaviour (values) to perform human way of parenthood, i.e. deliberately co-parenting of those children those are born out of ignorance, real poverty. All of us are being driven only by the very animal instinct. If the Bengali people ever be able to bring that genuine freedom (from vicious cycle of 'poverty') in their own life/attitude, start/involve themselves in 'Production of Space’(Henri Lefebvre), at least, initiate a movement, by heart, decent Politics will definitely come up.

      Though provoking hub sir. As per me corruption can be curtailed and completely weed out only when we all as an individual stop encouraging this menace which is proving to be a major bottleneck of your growing economy.......... KHILANA _PILANA BAND... really liked the advertisement of TATA TEA.... hope it will help is spreading the message.

      Hi! Skgrao

      Oh! I agree with you completely about corruption etc. Your article and comments assess quite well hopeless mud visible in our country every where. We do need a complete overhaul of our style of management, governance etc. Not just corruption horribly visible as you describe, also we are just lost in useless fights, abuse hollow slogans and what not.

      My only uncomfortable feeling was about calling it our culture. That you also agree is not a right attitude.

      Actually this state of affairs is mainly because we have democracy but in the name of democracy it has become quite a bit feudal rule. This feudal rule is being spread in the name hollow slogans like socialism, secularism etc. (with no intention to do any thing about it). Almost all politicalparties are ruled by some kind feudal one person or family rules. Even parties which have cadre based management like Communists or BJP people do not leave chair at all once they get into. Except for BJP where person in chair has to leave after a period of 1-2 years in all other parties top people remain the same (even in BJP very sr. people rule quite a bit). It does not matter what ideology parties follow and whether it is north south east or west, the pattern is same-look at Congress, SP, BSP, DMK, AIDMK, parties in Andhra, CPM, CPI, Lalu's party Nitish's party, Pawar party Bal Thakarey's family's parties, do they not all have the same pattern, rule by one top guy, no proper constitution to elect representative, no mechanism to change people in top positions in 2-3 years smoothly.

      In past Congress was also not like this nor were older versions of socialist, BJP etc. Our political system is continuously degrading. The feudal lords ruling these parties are least interested in welfare of people. They are only interested in keeping intact their feudal rule.

      Added to this is nexus between politicians, these feudal managers, feudal families managing Media/press, Criminals and some of top business people. No wonder we are in mess.

      But way to get out of it is, not to get lost in these abusive fights being spread by these top feudal lords. That is what they want the country to be lost in, so that they can rule. (If we continue with this- just look at what happens in Pakistan, that will be our future).

      Over all despite this mess I am not so pessimistic about things. In the same mess we also have people like Kalam. We also have business people/groups like Tata, Ambani, Narayan Murthy, Azim Premji, Bajaj etc. who have built up big institutions and bring fresh air with their very reasonable comments.

      We have to keep focus on changing our economy and business style so that family of every working person has a minimal life-style (it has to include food, housing, road, telephone, education, sanitation in-fra-structure etc.). As I mentioned other countries with much less resources have done it long back. We have to build institutions like RBI, SEBI, Telecom authorities etc. so that decisions are taken by a group in proper management ways (still there may be mistakes but they may get reduced and exposed with a group acting instead of being dictated in feudal manner).

      If silent majority which includes people like you and me builds up drive to not get lost as mentioned above and keep focus on this goal, it can be done with in decade. Let us hope it does happen.

      Dear soumyasrajan,

      Yes you may be right in your view working in a research Institute.

      True there is no corruption in such organization such as yours.

      Agreed we have to stop using such phrases as I have done.

      Today the country is under 2P,politicians and police.

      Today if at least 80% are of these 2 P's are honest our country can boast of least corrupt country.

      I need not say much but I have seen much.

      I was with Late Mr.V.P.Singh and other trade union leaders in a conference at Delhi,one of the national union leader requested Mr.V.P.Singh to nationalize the Industry which was under his labour control fully.Mr.V.P.Singh told him please get me one good honest efficient man who can run your Industry I will do it and you must never see me again.He kept mum.

      Govt Controlled world's largest group of textile mill is now eating Tax Payers money.They are unable to make even a car seat belt,which doesn't need a space scientist to make.They import synthetic turf for CWG which can be made in our country.

      Govt controlled world famous Mysore Silk Mills is working to less than 33% machine utilization and the reason they can't control labour.While a private mill of similar capacity is run at 98% with nil wastage.

      The Govt Controlled world's famous Mysore Sandle soap factory is run at 20% capasity,reason no sandle wood in any of the forest in the state.They run with sandle wood from Tamil Nadu.The entire state forest is wiped out of this gold wood but not tamil nadu.

      Go see BEML Mysore the house keeping you will blessed by god if you come out after taking a cup of good drinking water.

      You can write I can write,we both can talk but will it improve our country.

      Our nation is run by a Prime Minister who is not bothered with people's misary our food minister is playing with cricketers who fix matches.Our Finance Minister is Industry owned.

      MP'S salary gets instentaneously.

      People's direct tax benifits postponed till effective from 2012.

      Moists kills Ministers are discussing.

      This is worst than or greater than that of corruption.

      Why Gold prices are high.Smugglers keep politicians happy.

      Why Minister plans to visit other countries so often.

      Are we at least having foot paths and good roads.

      I am not a negative thinker but am a neautral thinker.

      Thanks for your time.I know you are honest many of my friends worked and retired from research Institute.Many from Private Industries.I worked in all I have seen all.

      Thanks for your comments.

      Hi! skgrao

      You have raised a question which concerns all of us. There is surely a lot of corruption in our country but I am not so sure to associate with our culture - how right it is? In fact I feel quite other way.

      I work in a government research institute where there are more than 200 scientists. It has been almost 40 years but I have never heard any of them ever been accused of corruption. Not just that, almost all scientist work late in the evening or on week ends regularly and there is no over time in our institute. I have never heard any body demanding any overtime. Administrative people do not come late or on weekends, but they do not need to also.

      For me that is the culture of our country. This is not the only example, for some time I was chairman of a small semi-commercial organization full of very young engineers. There also I saw the same dedication.

      Some of these ideas that corruption is our culture etc. are introduced by our politicians, media/press people, economy managers- semi-intellectuals who have ruled all these 50-60 years (specially congress and leftist who ruled most of this period). They have popularized slogans like socialism, nationalism, inferior culture bimaru states, communalism, secualrism etc. to hide their mismanagement and to keep intact their feudal structure. We have democracy. But almost all of our parties even leftists have very little cadre based management. A person who gets chair keeps it for all his life. Our country is among the richest ones, much richer than UK, Europe, Japan etc. (I once wrote a hub about it ) . We are among richest countries even without that money you mention in the above comment. But this type of mismanagement and feudal rules has made our people poor.

      I have always felt average person in India (it does not matter which part you look around) are hard working, honest, accommodating and friendly. I can compare also because I must have lived in at least 20 different countries.

      The above work culture in our institute is partly because facilities in our institute are just a little better than average government place in India.

      If we use our resources properly and build up culture of providing a minimal life style to every working person, there will be not much reason to be corrupt for an average person (big people are often corrupt everywhere). Models of other countries USA, Europe, Japan, Singapore suggest the same. While there is no example so far of the proposition that even when average population has enough it is corrupt.

      We will become actually quite a developed country with in decade if we leave out this opium of getting into useless fights and such useless slogans of corruption culture, Bimaru states, communal, pseudo secular etc. and work towards this goal of provding a minimal life style to every one as a business and administration culture.

      (Should we fight poverty first, or, should we fight corruption first) -There are no firsts.We have to fight both.It is a war with no choices left.

      If you equate stealing with corruption than you want both I presume,India has Rs.35,00,000 lakh crore stolen money in Tax Free countries.If we get it we will be the richest country in the world.

      Corruption is bad for a country and its people. People are willing to be corrupt because in the past they tasted poverty and now they have fear that in old age, and their children, can taste the same bitter poverty if they do not steal now for a rainy day. The people who are stealing a lot of money are the decision makers in a country and will never make laws that are against them.

      People can fight corruption but to finish corruption once started is not easy.

      Corruption and accountability has a multiplier effect. If a government officer in one country steals one vehicle every year, and another government officer in another country does not steal, in five years, the officer who did not steal will be having 5 vehicles whilst the one who stole will be having no vehicles. Vehicles can be taken as tools for production. The officer with vehicles will have tools for production and his people and country will prosper. The officer who does not have vehicles will have no tools for production and his people and country will just be paying him a salary when he is not doing any work for them because he has no tools. The multiplier effect of corruption is too big that it reduces the citizens into beggars in just a short period of about ten years.

      Should we fight poverty first, or, should we fight corruption first?
