Alternatively, we can say that, Yes we are. We often put blame on politicians rather than judging our souls. We bluntly indirectly encourage the corruption such as breaking the traffic rules, non-army personnel buying the branded things from the Army canteen etc. We should to genuinely follow each and every rules.

Now-a-days, all are flowing in the wave of fashion. We should to considered it as a fashion and be feel good to accomplished your duties. Celebrities should to set-up good examples so that crowds will also follow rules on behalf of them because we frequently copy our celebrities. If each and every law should be implemented effectively then there is no need to form new rules and no any issues of regarding corruption, crimes etc.

Corruption is one of the illegal thing which is done by all the people now a days. All people now a days makes corruption to innocent people in terms of money, wherever we go, there we should pay the money. In all the fields, there is money, without money, we can't get anything now a days. One thing I will explain that, corruption is done whenever we go for searching a job. It is common to all, but poor people can't give the money. So at last kindly requesting that, don't make corruption, especially to all officers.

I personally think that democracy is not the main reason of corruption. It is only we people who are supporting it from both end by giving and and taking bribe, so it think it would be better to stop blaming our system because we are the system, actually I want to say is that we all people are equal participant of corruption.

So, please I request to all of you don't blame our system and do your work sincerely whether you are a student, a politician or any government staff. I'm sure that corruption would automatically be disappeared one day. I actually want to mention one more thing "Rome was not built in a day". But you must start saying no to "BRIBE".

Our system is corrupted and we are the system. I personally considered us to be the only reason of our corrupted nation. It is widely spread in politics. The leaders we choose are public servants, so serving people is their duty and we the fools are giving bribes to do their duty.

So, to stop the corruption, we have to become intelligent and should stop giving and taking bribes.

HI, Friends.

Corruption is a personal choice of same perform or the government. We would not have any say in choosing our leaders. I really fell that corruption is the money what we pay for democracy. If we go for making birth certificate, residence certificate, caste certificate etc. Because if we really want this corruption is ended in our country totally from the root, then effort is require from the both side only. Then it can be possible.

It wouldn't be appropriate to think democracy lets corruption prevail easily. Indeed it has nothing to do with it. Corruption is a personal choice of some person or the government. It can exist even at the root level or among the underlings. The best thing people can do is be careful with the choice of leaders they make. They should run a check on the background of the leaders and see if they had any history under corrupt practices. We cannot be extremely sure all the time.

We can just be wise in the choice of the government we vote for. Had we been living under dictatorship or some other form of government, it would have been way more difficult for us to change it since we would not have any say in choosing our leaders. In my opinion, if a little corruption exists (sure it does everywhere) and it does not interfere with the proper functioning of the country, it can be overlooked but serious actions should be taken if it starts growing. As long as the government if for people, by people and of people, it is easy to curb and tone down corruption.

Not necessarily corruption can be in dictatorship also why there is any need for democracy to be corrupted. In democracy the corruption is hidden and less chances are there of being exposed and in dictatorship that will be direct. In both situation nothing can be done because both are being in power.

Hello friends, according to my point of view, today corruption in India is increases as much level sometime I really feel that corruption is the money which we pay for democracy. Today in every field, there is a corruption. If we go for making birth certificate, residence certificate, caste certificate etc, then without giving money no certificate make. If we go for making passport, then again without giving money it will not make. Even if we need a help of government for small work, then it can't be possible without giving money. And if a person not able to give money or not give money, then what happen? That person come again & again, but his/her work is not done.

Now the time is come to change this environment so that we feel proud that we live in Democratic country where every person has right to take benefit of their rights. I think to change this environment, there is a need to take step from both the government side as well as from our side. The government should make a strict law against corruption so that no one even think to take corrupt money and give them strict instruction. Also with the same there is also need to change our mindset that we can't give money to anyone for doing our work and if someone ask for money, then complaint it to police. Because if we really want this corruption is ended in our country totally from the root, then effort is require from the both sides and only then it can be possible.

Hi,

In my opinion, nowadays corruption is the major problem in India. This corruption is done mainly by bribe. If we want to get a date of birth certificate from the collector office we need to bribe them then only the work gets done. This is very sad because if the people cannot afford the money to bribe suffer. Therefore necessary steps should be taken by the government to reduce the corruption in India. Every citizen in India should be responsible for this problem.

Hi Friends,

We are all living in a democracy country. Corruptions is a illegal activities done by a person for his personal gain. We would have to see when the corruption is make by the people. In our country they get something from government there are few official formalities and steps. That department related officers and politicians are used this in illegal activity like bribe. But we also involved in this, because we only paying bribe to them.

Everyone should think one thing, why we pay bribe to they do their duties. Even when the crowded in temples we can see this. Everyone should change themselves first to prevent corruption in our nation. We should work together to save our INDIA from corruption.

We can not simply say that democracy increases corruption. But it still affects our society upto certain extent. When a leader becomes corrupt and earns money by illegal means. People get influence by that and start doing the same thing.

Our elections gets most affected by corruption. Politicians spend money like water to manipulate people and turn their vote in favor of them. When people see this they also think that there's nothing wrong with it and it starts becoming a habit.

But we cannot completely blame democracy for corruption. There are also some honest politician who never take bribe and remain faithful to their job. We need to learn from these politician instead of the corrupt ones. Because at last we are responsible for what our society becomes.

Hello everyone,

This is Sumeet Pareek.

It is quite difficult to decide who is responsible for corruption. No country in this world is perfect, corruption is everywhere. According to me corruption has two forms, corruption at top level and corruption at lower level. But in India corruption at low level spoils the country economy.

Let me take an example of ration shop, it is true fact. We all know that people below poverty line gets ration from ration shops at lower cost but this is the point where corruption starts from. At these shops the shopkeeper sold the ration at cost usually more than the actual cost and these poor people do not aware about this. The first root cause of corruption is unawareness among-st poor people.

Hi friends,

Corruption is illegal activities done by a person for his/her personal gain. But democracy is not the cause for corruption. Democracy is the best form of governance. Its not just the government and officials who are responsible for corruption. We are equally responsible. When people are ready to do anything to get their things done at ease then how can we put the whole blame on government. Most people start blaming corruption and bribing when someone gets something done through bribing and we don't have that much money to pay. The fact is that if we had the money 90% people would have done the same. We really don't have to look high up to see corruption. Even in crowded temples we can see this. People paying more money so that they can avoid standing in the queue.

The alternative for democracy, dictatorship doesn't prevent corruption. Their the government is not in our control. A dictator can do anything he wish. In democracy we have the right to protest against this. Still we are not responding. We cannot blame democracy for that. It is true that in our country to get something done there are so many official formalities and steps. But that doesn't mean that we should bribe each and every official. Be the change that you want to see. Sitting idle thinking one person alone can't change the system won't help. We all are equally important for the state of our nation. We can work together to save our INDIA!

Corruption is one of major problem is being faced by our country. We always say government is responsible, neglecting the fact that it is started from our house, when we give extra money to children to complete our task. They become used to this manner and we have to paid for it in the form of corruption. So children must provide proper learning. Government also provide appropriate amenities to government people so that they also not accept compensation from people in the form of bribe.

Swati said: (Sun, Jul 6, 2014 05:46:53 PM)    
 
HI FRIENDS.

Its Swati. Today we will discuss about the topic "corruption is the price we pay for democracy".

In my point of view corruption is the price we pay for democracy as because corruption has been spreading over India like cancer. Most of the people are very much used to it and trying to make handsome money without any truthful effort. Corruption starts from home and we all are unable to find the dead end. For example if your 2 years old son crying then you think of the solution how to make him cheerful. In simple words your son is threatening you for bribe to stop crying which is the first step of corruption. As we all know DEMOCRACY stands for" by the people, of the people and for the people.

But now the meaning of DEMOCRACY has been totally changed and it is CORRUPTION is by the people, of the people and for the people. This is actually due to us but we are blaming the government.

As taking BRIBE is a crime like wise giving bribe is also a crime and both culprits are equally involved. Now corruption is spreading in each and every corner of our country like a dreadful disease. For instance in the field of EDUCATION Donation is a compulsion in every educational institutes. Is not it one type of bribe?when the child is entering in to his/her educational career at first he is being taught to bribe by giving donation. So how can he/she be a non corrupted citizen?And the another cause of corruption is considering I; ME and myself as whole world and forgetting our responsibility towards our country.

By this corruption most of the people in INDIA are under poverty and are not getting the basic needs like proper food, hygiene and shelter to live. It is one of the major factors that our country is not being included in the list of developed country.

So now it is the time to wake up to stop this offensive deeds. We the people of this generation should try to eradicate the corruption which is spreading like communicable disease. So That corruption can be completely rooted out.

THANK YOU.

Corruption has now became a parasite that is sucking benefits or nutrients from hosts from poor to the rich. Its been practiced along the length and breadth of our country. Major cause of corruption is because our constitution, our law is inclined towards in support the corruption. I mean how can one formulate laws if the law constructors in the house of parliament are themselves corrupted. So, more transparency in the system can help in avoiding it. Our country needs good leaders that can help reforms the country's structure.

In a democracy, loss to national income is never viewed as a personal loss. But these losses effect many policies which eventually affect our personal lives.

In democracy a corrupt person can become a representative by the appeasement of the majority of the voters just before voting, or we can say he/she can buy their votes.

Democracy represents the people, but people cannot always be right just because they are more in no., they do commit mistakes.

Corruption is really eating away the labour of each indian, which they try to produce for not only themselves but for all other indians too. Where these efforts go? In the pocket of politicians, gov. Employees, corporate businessmen etc.

* To prevent corruption, awareness should be spread among all Indian through media advertisement, newspaper. Lack of awareness is the key reason behind corruption.

* Strict law and punishment may also prevent corruption.

* Transparency in governance may play a key role to eradicate corruption to a large extent.

* At last, one vote can change India in resolving the problem of corruption.

Hi everyone,

Like many of my friends said Democracy means of the people, for the people and by the people. But can we achieve the real meaning of democracy. The answer is no and one of the main reason behind it is corruption. According to me yes corruption is a price of democracy because we the people helps it passively or actively. So to curb this disease a big national effort is needed which is again I a slow process in a vast secular democratic country. Some steps:

1. Our responsibility : we have to be more responsible to elect a candidate and should give a chance to fresh youth blood because they can bring the change instead of the older ones.

2. Responsibility of Government : Govt should take a strict policies in the face of corruption and it should not be tolerated under any circumstances.

3. Responsibility of our teachers : Teachers should teach the essence of nationalism from grass root level because only nationalism can create a big national effort which can confront any kind of national diseases like corruption.

Corruption is the biggest predicament Indian people are suffering mostly in the world. But the question arises over here is who is really responsible for all these, isn't it we guys. We are the openers of the doors of corruption and the whole process starts from our childhood itself. Whenever our parents want us to do something for them like prestigious work they encourage us by promising to give something in return.

But they never realize that what it would resulted into. When that child grow up it's greediness increases as it gets whatever it wants through all means. So when he becomes a responsible person he tries to pay to get the work done. Changes come from within. We are the guys who are badly needed to our country. Look at the price trend of each and every product in india, everything seems costliest.

According to me,

Corruption is the major cause for every problems. Bribe begins in getting money for voting to a particular party. Everyone should know that voting is our duty. In a democratic country like India everyone should take a right decision to choose their leaders.

In Order to reduce corruption, punishment should be more severe. Our law should be modified that no corrupted people will escape from it. We all know the person, who was the main victim for 2g spectrum. He contested in the lok sabha elections 2014. How could it happen. We all know that he was the main aquiste. But our law and other things cannot able to give punishments quickly and he simply escapes from our law. So law should be modified and punishments should be more severe.

Corruption is the only thing which destroys the development of our country.

Corruption is any unfair means to get your work done. Corruption exists in almost in every sector. In small terms corruption exists in colleges where students pay to get marks. In big terms it exists in politics!

As we know, democracy means of the people, for the people and by the people. It is to help people leave the way they want. This liberty however can be misused. Hence a question here is "Is democracy resulting in corruption"?

For.

Democracy makes everyone a free bird. Some people especially the politicians make use of this in the wrong way.

Though it is unfair to say that because of Democracy, corruption is existent, however, the fact remains that democracy provides equality to everyone that results in people to have their own aims.

These aims may not always necessarily be for the country.

Democracy allows people to choose their leader. The leaders can thus easily buy votes!

Against.

Corruption is not a direct result of democracy. It can exist anyway. At the end of the day, it is an individual's decision to spread corruption or not.

When people are given a choice to their leader, they must think twice before doing so. If they accept bribe it is not democracy that can be blamed.

To summarizes, corruption in whole should be stopped. Whether it is a direct outcome of anything or not, it does not matter.

In my point of view, first of all the common people of India has to understand the power of democracy. Its the foremost power that every individual has. And nobody will going to stop you to use it for a right cause. Corruption cannot be removed in a day it will take years I suppose but there should a strong initiative for every individual.

But in todays scenario Indian people are considered as crabs if one tries to get out of the basket corruption the other crabs pull him back. Rather the pushing him out and following his path.

So I believe it not democracy for what we are paying corruption, it is our laziness, lust for more and more money, materialistics which all are degrading the power of democracy.

Hello friends,

In my view both the public and political leaders are responsible for spread of corruption in India. Because in this election time even the educated youth are also taking money from Parties because we are least bothered.

Mindset of people is like what will happen if we take money as they are offering. Unknowingly they are also indulging in corruption. How can we expect a corrupt free india?

Now a days the small government employees who are also not taking bribe previously are taking now. The reason is their mindset is like so many are taking crores of bribes, political leaders are doing so many scams, what will happen if we also take. This attitude should be changed.

As long as everyone is sincere to their own hearts we cannot drain away corruption from this country.

Hi friends!

I would like to share some information what I have in my mind regarding corruption.

Corruption plays a vital role to decline the economy of the nation as well as value of the nation. If the more people corrupted in the country then the problems also increases along with corruption. People in our country giving the bribes to do their works in quicker manner. They always try to manage the with bribe, but manage the things will not give the permanent solution, so we should in manner to solve the problem of corruption like 1) we should abide the rules & regulations of nation.

2) we should stop to giving the bribe, although the things may be delayed.

3) we should aware of the consequences of the corruption then it is easy to abolish the corruption from the society, at the same the we should conduct the awareness programs on corruption in rural areas then we remove the corruption problem at root level.

As we already know that corruption is spreading like a dreadful virus in india, there is a need among the people in changing themselves. The most important thing that people should do is that electing a proper politician, in solving the problems. Government should take initiative in this regard in providing good facilities, so that people will live freely, mainly basic needs should be provided. By properly implementing such features people mind set may change, so they refuse to give bribe. The bribe acceptors should be punished severely.

CORRUPTION: Its now spreading more than swine flu. Its more dangerous virus to spread all the people in the entire nation. The only MEDICINE for to reduce the corruption drug is to change the mindset of the people for their selfishness. Many of we think that corruption is main caused by the politicians and govern departments officers. But first corruption starts from our home only with a small child in our home/neighbours. The only method to reduce at least half of corruption is first to clean our home to avoid giving bribe to people for common utilises also. If we follow it in every home in the entire nation then there will be no corruption at least in future generation.

Corruption is the most problematic thing in our democracy. Its time for India to take drastic measures in order to curb corruption. Every citizen in India is caught under the web of corruption. The grievance address by common man are not properly taken under consideration. The rich people are violating the laws and escape punishment by bribing. The current system must be reformed and reorganized rather than changing the entire system.

Jan lokpall bill is an instrument to fight against corruption, when the bill is passed to main aspect will come into consideration.

1. It is an independent body which will work with the help of CBI and there will be no influence from people who are under the power.

2. There will be fast track system where the problems of the common man and the system will be resolved immediately.

So this is one of the measure to curb corruption and also India have to educate many people so that corruption can be avoided.

First the people mind set should be changed because they are fixed to give the money to the corrupted persons and doing their work quickly. Some of the corrupted officers also encourage corruption for earning money quickly. So the public should give the ZERO NOTES to the corrupted officers to reduce the corruption. ZERO NOTES are symbol for the anti corruption.

Today in our country corruption has become a type of virus which is nowadays getting spread in an individual like a viral infection. Almost all the people from 10-90% has corrupted. From children to youth, adult to senior citizens, they all get spoiled. In each and every step of our life we bribe.

In past we bribe for getting wrong things but today we bribe for getting right thing.

One corrupt Customs Officer of Mumbai took twenty lakhs and allowed RDX to enter the city which caused the loss of hundreds of innocent lives and property worth thousands of crores was destroyed. If India is in todays pathetic condition, it is we the Citizens are totally and fully responsible. Because we ignore, least bothered about the happenings around us. We in our day to day life bribe the officials for getting our works done. We never resist and if we resist bribe giving, the civil society will not come to our rescue neither the politicians. Thus, our works will not be done. We will be victimized by the officials. If there is a strong machinery, like the citizen's charter, informing the pending status of our work and penalizing the officials for delay in getting the work and also by confiscating the properties of the corrupt government officials and our beloved politicians, giving harsh and rigorous punishments to corrupt people,

We can to a large extent wipe out corruption from the society. Unfortunately in our once Great country, every field is corrupt even the media. There are a very few people who do not bribe and not take bribes. Their count is marginal. When a person is crusading against corruption, we all must support him and pressurise the authorities. We must vote on the character and personal traits of a candidate rather than the party, region, religion and caste. We must understand that to vote a person belonging to our region, religion or the caste boomerangs on us if he is not worthy or honesty. Learn from Singapore, Japan, the Europe, the US. Where are they and where are we? India opened its eyes some thousands of years back. But today it is in deep dark. Because we are lazy, least bothered, cunning and dishonest along with jealousness and cruelty towards fellow Indians. If we do not change our mind set, then India will disappear from world map in next decade.

I completely disagree with the topic that corruption is the price which we pay for democracy. Firstly it is very important to understand what is democracy, We all know that democracy is for the people, of the people and by the people.

So, we can never blame the politics for that, because democracy itself has defined that we the people are responsible for it and only our initiative can help the country to reduce corruption. Each single step by us can bring a big change in the future generations. So, we people have the power to reduce the corruption.

Directly taking names of the politicians and the political parties or the bureaucrats is not apt. Now we have to understand where the problem lies in and what are the loopholes of such things. Taking the examples of the CWG scam, the 2G scam, the COALGATE scam, we always point out the people heading that project, but the common people working under such projects are somewhat knowing the truth of the incidents and do not not come up with some complaint or sort of, due to the fear of job security and life security.

Politicians and bureaucrats are the part of the common people, they do come from the side of the common people. The people selecting them are also the common ones. So bringing a change in ourselves and not blaming others would be the apt way to evacuate corruption out of our lives.

Hi friends,

As we all know that not only India but also whole world are facing a huge problem of corruption. I think corruption results of the bad mentality of a person to earning the money quickly.

Corruption is a resistance in the way of development of our country. For the corruption, the society itself is responsible because we society person elect the leaders which are representative of our society and we blame them for their malpractices, So we should wisely elect a person who can run government according to the people.

Corruption is the price for democracy. We (people) are electing the leader so can't blame leaders.

System is aligned and designed by the people, so people should blame us.

Since we are not bothered about our rights and an individual's selfishness and ease of work to be done is the cause of corruption.

TO abolish corruption, it will be a very long and slow process, since every individual should change their attitude. Thus our system will be cleaned by proper using of the people's rights.

So before blaming the system and others we will change our mind set.

Hi everybody,

The topic under discussion is 'corruption is the price we pay for democracy'.

In my opinion corruption is giving or taking money for the work done. The first thought in all set of minds the present government is reason for these things.

The examples are:

1. Paying donations to join in good institutions.

2. Paying to get VIP entries.

3. Paying more amount to tickets etc.

These are few reasons that our country is becoming more corrupted.

I want the change from the present generation onward and use the RTI acts to diminish the corruption.

Thank you.

Hello everyone. Corruption!. As soon as I utter this word, image of current governance system comes into our mind. But I ask who is sole responsible for this corruption? It is we people who are enjoying it at fullest & even teaches the same to society.

Right from the first day when we go to apply for admission in nursery class of our child to getting admission in a good college, we are ready to pay high bribes/donations. Forget all, Even in temples we are ready to pay Rs. 501 to get the VIP Entry Pass for Jal-Abhisheka and all. It is we people who supports corruption and helping it to nurture in our society.

"Corruption" after listing this word we always start blaming to our system, politicians. But I want to raise one thing that most of the parties do not include "GOOD GOVERNANCE" in their agenda or if they keep it, in the end they fail in proceeding "GOOD GOVERNANCE". Somehow we are responsible for that we do not try to change the system we always keep abusing the system. How many of us has filed RTI ever?

Hi friends,

As we know democracy means for the people, by the people and of the people.

I have been listening from my childhood. Nowadays children are learning this statement.

Without knowing the meaning of that. I think change must be from this stage itself. CORRUPTION means somewhat giving bribes to get our work done. Now even most of the educated persons are also supporting the corruption indirectly by giving the bribes.

The ethical values must be imbibed from childhood. Then we can see the change slowly in future. We should not blame the government. And even the government must take some initiatives to allow the people into politics with minimum qualification in education. So that the thoughts which are leading to corruption will be minimised in the system.

Finally, what I mean to say is the change must be from two sides. Thank u:-).

A Republic defined in the US Constitution, is an individual rule defined by individual Rights.

Hello friends, first of all I would like to explain what the corruption is- it is a manual activity which affects the other's right and produces a feeling of nuisance by any means. In the constitutional language restricting the freedom of others which should be inhibited.

In today's era we can see the abolish of this right of freedom in many scams, activity etc. But in my opinion democracy is not the cause because in real meaning democracy is FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND OF THE PEOPLE, that's why we have to blame ourselves for this disease.

We are democratic by constitution but are not democratic by mind unlike in UK, USA, where the peoples are democratic by mind also, in our country also, Kerala is on the way.

For this some initiatives should be started by the government, NGO's, local groups etc.

Some of the initiatives like RTI, RTE etc. Are very good initiatives, also we should implement a portion of social manners in our school level syllabus so that a slow but a positive reaction comes.

Good Morning friends. Today's topic is corruption is the price we pay for democracy. I don't agree with this let me explain, my view. I start with defining corruption in simple terms is dishonesty. Taking undue advantage of the authority by taking bribes. Dishonest, and disloyal conduct towards your work that leads to harm to the society. Democracy is the way of government ruling the country.

Democracy is of the people, by the people and for the people. Corruption is the word always used for government and that pretty not fair. Yes we agree many of the political leaders are corrupted but many of them are clean too. They are rather jus for the welfare of the country. Corruption is somewhere because of us. Lack of awareness, illiteracy, dishonesty and the kind of mindset to cheat people. So corruption is definitely not the price we pay for democracy infancy there are many more reasons behind it. Thank you.

Corruption is the result of mindset of people to give thing to get thing done on priority or misuse of power. We talk about leader that the are corrupt, bureaucrats are corrupt it is true but it is also true that we make able him to do these type of illegal work. Therefore now time has come that we have to come together and take step against corruption. We have to start from our home, to root out the corruption. We have to choose our best leader, & government Also take care of the fact that people should able to choose the best leader by protecting them from non socialistic reason. To stop the corruption government Should make stringent provision against it & should honour the step which is going to stop it or are ready to routed out it. That all.

I completely disagree with this "corruption is the price we pay for democracy".

We each at individual level promoting corruption, because everyone wants his own works to be done on priority not even in government office but in temple too. We always ready to pay bribe, to get work done as son as possible.

Now my friends we are livening in Republic country where our government work according to system and our government always trying to improve it, so it is the responsibility of each individual to Cooperate with the government and it is also a responsibility of us to follow the system.

Hello Everyone, It is good to see so may thoughts regarding the topic.

My take is, it is completely illogical that corruption is the price we are paying for democracy. Democracy is Independence, it is giving us all the right we have as a citizen of India. Democracy is a result of hard work and the hard ships all the great people like Bhagat Singh and others had faced. It is upto us that how we want to see and how we want to make this society. It is us who decides what should be done in which way, corruption is a like a disease which has been created by us. No body can't make any excuse that he never done anything which contribute to the current situation of corruption we have in our country. There is a need to correct ourself first, start it from yourself your family your relatives and so on. Gandhi ji has told us; be the change you want to see. So if we want to see and we want to have a corruption free society it should be our prime responsibility rather than blaming other.

Hi guys,

Corruption is a great and basic word can be heard any where. But the person who are talking about the corruption are himself corrupted. Every one now a days want to get their work quickly which results in the extra money charge called corruption. This sweat box of money make them greedy.

Today their are so many politician in our country they solve the problems of public in exchange of money either the work is legal or illegal.

In our country every one want to earn money, it doesn't mean from where it comes, but should come. Every one today corrupted.

But this is not only due to the taker of money but also due to the person who give money for their legal or illegal work.

So to make our country we must be free from this fact that we will not give any type of money to get our work easily and if the officer or social worker stress for money than complain it. There is a effective low for this dishonesty.

So make your self free from corruption and help in making India free from corruption.

That's all.

Hello Freinds!

Just as "Every coin has two sides", like that CORRUPTION also has two causes. We have to look and think on both the sides. "We cannot clap with one hand". Its just like that. We are not to blame our politicians alone. WE ARE TO BE BLAMED TOO. But people forget this unfortunately.

More than 50% people today are paying bribes to public officials!

So how can the government alone be made responsible for this?

In every nook and corner of our nation we see corruption. Be it schools, Colleges, Offices, Government Offices, Hospitals and where not. The beginning of corruption starts from our house itself. From childhood itself children are given bribes. For example, if you want them to study then you promise them to give them the things they like. Is this not one kind of bribe? The next time the child him/her self will demand something from you and threaten you that if you will fulfill their wish they will not study. This is indirectly bribing is it not?

You want your ward to get good marks give bribes. You want your work to be done without any interference of law, give bribe. When will this stop?

The politicians spend crores of rupees on elections. They PURCHASE voters for them to win. Has anyone ever thought 'Where did they get so much money from?'. I am sure no one has.

India has around US $1.5 trillion in Swiss Banks and India tops in it!

India has more black money invested in Swiss Banks than any other country in the world!

Aren't these numbers huge? Yes, they are. Whose money is this? Its ours.

We live in democratic country. Democracy FOR the people, BY the people and OFF the people. We have the right to know where the money that we pay as tax go. But we don't even bother to ask.

This is the reason why so many people today are unemployed, stay on footpaths, don't have enough food to eat and no clothes to wear. Is this our superpower India 2020?

If we start giving bribes we surely will be able to bring down the corruption rate by 50%. Vote for the appropriate candidate.

Of course this will not happen in a night. It will take time. But its high time we start thinking about this. Its time we have to come together and unitedly fight against corruption. If everyone will think like this then who has the power to come and stop us? Awareness has to be created among today's youth who are the leaders of tomorrow.

Thank You.

If this topic is in contrast with democracy in India then I don't think democracy is left in India. Democracy means a government of the People, for the People, by the People. But nowadays politicians are not selected by giving votes they select themselves by 'buying' the votes, certain people really don't know about giving votes during elections they know this is earning time as any politician will come and give them money or something and they become happy they don't even know what is democracy. And when these type of politicians come into power, you can see what is happening from last 4 years.

About corruption, this is not the new term (as many said corruption means getting their work done by unfair means) people in old days (may from the days humanity exists) this thing was done but that time it was not harming anyone a lot (there were very less people then) but nowadays in a country like India with such huge population and of-course with democracy, everyone cannot fulfill his needs he has to take wrong ways, this results in corruption. But I don't think democracy has to do with it as there are lots of democratic countries in the world with less corruption India ranks at 95 (More the number more corrupt the country is) in the corruption perception. So we can realize there are lots of countries which are having less corruption while having a DEMOCRACY!

First of all we have to see the meaning of corruption. The corruption is nothing but the giving a thing (money or anything) for getting a work from others quickly.

As soon as the britisher leaved our country, some other dictators are formed in our country. They made corruption. But now each and every human being is corrupting upto his maximum extent. Corruption is one of the major common disease of the many countries. The country with corruption are the countries which are always the control of the other people.

The corruption is mainly coming from the people who are lazy and elite. At first, the lazy peoples and elite people are corrupted the society for their wealth. Then gradually peoples started to corrupt the society. But now we cannot do anything in the society without corruption. Instead of other feeling (National, Welfare of society) the corruption is the thing which is running as the blood in the people of the major countries.

So each everyone should try to became a corruptless.

Corruption is like a cholestral in the vessels of blood system (Society). It gradually decreases the size of the vessels and leads to heart attack (Social welfare).

So try to be a social man.

Corruption is the result of an ill mindset, a result of people's desire to fulfill their unjustified ambitions using unethical methods. Corruption can be found in any form of government-socialistic, democratic, communal or autocratic. So corruption is not the result of a system but of the people running the system. Hence I cannot buy this argument that corruption is the price we pay for democracy.

Corruption is in our blood, politicians can't be blamed on a whole for corruption. Right from we start our day we promote corruption for example, suppose if we are late on our way to college/office we are ready to pay rickshaw-wala a peny more. So we, ourself should stop this corruption right from us then make people understand.

Though corruption is teeming in a democratic state, it is not entirely correct to state that corruption is integral to democracy. India is a republic democratic, but angled towards democracy.

As for the comparison with America, the nation is an evolved one. And I think with the increase in transparency demands by the next generations, India is evolving. Democracy plays a role of little significance in terms of corruption when the nation is 'evolved'.

We are all part of Democracy and hence to stop corruption we should start from ourself, laws and regulations should be more strict regarding corrupt people. They should be heavily penalized for their deeds. Also School must give lesson to student and encourage them to do all the their activities transparently, so that atleast our future generation (and leaders too) will not be corrupt.

I am putting a small example over here like if we compare our country with america, america is not having the corruption word in their dictionary, Because their thinking and way to manage their whole country is totally different as compare to our country. The political leaders of our nations are totally corrupt, but america is having up class thinking. They know better than us that, how to fulfill the demands which are necessary for the people who all are living over there. America has recently tested one missile I don't know the name of that missile but I heard that by this missile america can destroy the land of 9, ooo to 1o, ooo km, India copied the same thing we all might have heard about 'agni 5'by this missile we can destroy any thing on the wide range of 5000 km to 5500 km. So my point is why can't we copied the same rules and regulations which all are america's government applying to maintain their strong political and economical background.

We talk about democracy and corruption but many of us are just too tired even to vote. We prefer to promote corruption when we have to get our work done. We fail to stand by those who raise voice against corruption. We just want to win an argument but loose even our self esteem to corrupt system. We are the promoters. There is fragmentation within us, what we say, what we think and what we do. What have we actually done, on individual basis, on ground level, to strengthen democracy and reduce corruption?

I am totally agreed with the term that corruption is the thing which we are paying for democracy. If we step forward and make our will strong against all those evil happenings, I am sure one day or the other our country will also be changed and this will be soon if we are together. For this, first we have to change ourselves by making OUR ACTIONS TO SPEAK WHICH WE THINK.

Corruption is involved in each and every aspect in our country and in this fast track world we find corruption as the easiest way to get our work done. It starts with the individual. Democracy is not responsible for corruption. Democracy is to the people, by the people and for the people. We have the right to vote, we elect our political leaders, so one must have a subtle mind while choosing the leader. Also, people should come forward and have guts to raise voice against anything wrong done rather than going with whatsoever is happening.

Corruption does become a road block in the process of national development if the policy makers are not patriotic or not trained in development processes or not interested in national development and get away fooling citizens. However it is not necessary that corruption is the price we pay for democracy. A few months back, I read a book " 5 Years Guarantee : How to make India Richer " published by Manas Publications, New Delhi. The book is basically in the domain of developmental economics and public policy and suggests a very novel process for quick national development and poverty removal.

In this process of developemnt and employment generation, the concept explains secondary or inconsequential role of money. That makes corruption not affecting too much on the daily lives of the citizens. The book has even a chapter on corruption. If such a system for development is followed, in that case, domestic corruption (associated only within the national boundary) has no major impact. But corruption encompassing beyond the national boundary may have both short term and long term consequences for the nation. Take for example foreign direct investment (FDI) in multi-retail.

It's colour is definitely marred by corruption at the highest levels. And once implemented, it will affect and drastically impact the Indian citizens leading to long term unemployment, higher consumer prices and threat to the national security. Just take one recent example of the story of apples in India. The Indian apples are diificult to purchase (not seen) , big retails and now even smaller retail shops keep only Australian or Fuzi or Chinese apples at much much hiher prices and unprecedanted rate of the price rise still happening.

Democracy is not responsible for corruption, first we have to change ourself if anybody is asking for bribe then we should complain to police if police is not reacting then go to media which is most powerful medium to protest.

We all know that corruption is a Legal offense. And its like a fatal disease. But we can't say that only our government is responsible for corruption even we all are also involved in it. And we also enhance it as much as a politician. And I consider that its our misunderstanding that we blame our government. Our government is not corrupt but their people are corrupt. And they take undue advantage of their entrusted power.

We know that India is a world's no. One democratic country. Not because of their politicians but because of their people. So first of all we need to improve ourselves.

According to me. Corruption is a dishonestly and illegal activity done by an individual but it doesn't mean that it is a price we pay for democracy. Being a Democracy we have a lot of rights and way to remove this social evil from our honorable country INDIA. Democracy is a only mean by which we can demolish corrupted people from our country.

For corruption we all our responsible for sure. But it is also true that we are only one who can remove it to. This independence is only provided by this democracy. Being democratic we can ruin this incurable disease from INDIA.
