Hi, This is Dhananjay.

As today topic is about, "Solution of corruption is a mirage till we catch top public figure".

I totally disagree with this statement. We can't say that corruption is here only because of top public figure & politicians. At each and every corner of India, we can see the live example of corruption.

Before pointing out to others, we should ask ourselves, that " Have I been a part of corruption "?

Knowingly or unknowingly, corruption is being encouraged. It can be restrained. We are the youth generation, we know the meaning of poverty, we know the value of food. Only we are the one who has the courage to weed out corruption.

For instance, if corruption is about politicians, then we were the persons who elected him. As a democratic country, we have the power to amend our mistake by using our democratic right. If its about top figure, then I will say, they are being appreciated by us. If we all will not support them, then we can break this word top - figure.

My main point is, everyone has to see the dream of a corruption free country. They have to believe that, it is possible. If each person will oppose some corruption activities which has been running around him/her, then we can imagine that, by unity, we can get a corruption free country.

"We have been taught that by unity we can do everything. ".

If we can recall our history, how we got independent? we can easily sense that A corruption free country is also possible.

The power of our country is " YOUTH ". By positive imagination & self-awareness, we can eradicate corruption.

Thank you.

Not only politicians and rich people are responsible for corruption in our country, common people are also equally responsible for the same. Everybody in this country wants the shortcut for every work to be done, nobody wants to wait for something and the easiest way to get your work done quickly is to give bribe to the person who is the official of the same.

We all have to come forward with the resolution of neither giving or taking the bribe nor appreciating these things in our country. The only way to getting rid of this is the determination. Everything is possible in this universe but that needs strong determination and resolutions.

Not only the politicians but we the common people are too responsible for corruption. We have become so lazy at everything that we always keep finding a shortcut for all things. For example, if you are late to work and break a signal and then traffic police catch you. In this case, 1st thing you will do is ask him how much money you want? Then recently during Ganesh Chaturthi when you are tired of standing in line you get the VIP tickets and encourage such people to make more money in the name of god. So the conclusion here is unless and until we change our thinking and stop doing these things till then the solution to corruption is just a mirage.

Every society is divided into sections :the poor, the middle class and the upper class as per the income is concerned. The degree of actions of the people depend on which class they are belonging. Corruption is very deeply rooted in the society ranging from very low to very high level. Curbing the people involved in low level corruption would not help much in the betterment of society unless we catch the bigger fishes. The top public figures involved in corruption are like the brain of corruption. Once the brain is destroyed, the body cannot survive. But if we are involved in destroying the fingers, hands, legs etc it can rebuild itself. Hence I completely agree that corruption is a mirage till we catch top public figure.

Many people think that the corruption will reduce if the punishment is given to those who are doing corruption. The corruption is caused due to both giver and taker.

The corruption will be reduced when the competitiveness by converting government departments to public limited or privatized.

If you see the history of the telephone department there was a lot of corruption in the department when it was the government department.

One has to wait for years to get the connection. Even after getting the connection employees were demanding money for giving the connection. Also, there were cases the employees taking bribes and the bills were reduced for the customers by stopping their meters.

After the entry of private operators and the conversion of telephone department to public limited company everything has changed without any punishment to any employee. Now the corruption has almost nil in the BSNL. If you see the corruption in a department 80% of the employees will be taking the bribes. But the anti-corruption department will be catching only 1% of the corrupted people. So this was it is very difficult to stop corruption. Every department which linked to the public money should be privatized and the competitiveness should be brought in the departments just like BSNL.

Then the corruption will be automatically come down.

We are whole and solely responsible for corruption. Because the major problem in India is if anyone helps us we will think to something for him, by this way corruption has been started, our minds started thinking like what we will get when we will help other, when we stop thinking the second option automatically corruption will get a decrease.

Everyone is talking how to eradicate corruption but none is actually working on it. Leaders they talk as if like after completing their speech in any meeting, they are going to take stringent actions against culprit but they do nothing. All their talking is only till their conference hall.

So what actually is needed to be done to make our country transparent and corruption free. First of all, deadline should be given to all political leaders and office bearers to show their income within a week and if they lag, tough actions should be taken against them. Let's not assume that only these people are involved in corruption, a traffic is also corrupt if he or she catches you violating traffic rules and then leaves you after taking some money. Those who are involved in manipulation of money are not only the one to be called as corrupt if someone is not doing his office duty on time, in spite of the scheduled time at 10 o'clock, if they are coming after two or three hours then this is also a sign of corruption.

There should be some independent body which should not be accountable to government, rather it should be accountable to all general people, should immediately be formed. There are news that several people transfer their money to someone else's account and deposit this large sum in Swiss bank their account should be properly checked and if found guilty all their money should be seized and used in public welfare programmes.

Strict actions should be taken especially against those bada babus working in government offices who never forward any of your bills without taking money. CCTV cameras should be installed everywhere, and they should also remain active 24-7 such that all activities of anyone can be checked if needed.

I think taking these measures we can reduce corruption level and make India great again.

Hi, Guys.

Corruption is a mirage or not are totally depends on us, not only politicians and rich people, common people like us also a reason.

For corruption for example if you want a birth certificate from the gov generally it takes one month but now we get within a few days it is possible by giving money to that particular officer So, first you should stop these type illegal activities automatically your neighbors and your friend are follows you defiantly.

No, Corruption is not a mirage until we catch a top public figure. Where there is a problem there is always a solution. It's upon us to realise that and take actions. Firstly, if corrupt people are bribe takers then we the bribe givers. One needs to change himself before seeking a change in a macro level. People who don't have patience and wants to get their jobs done anyhow is the first person responsible for corruption, those who take illegal money use their power to make extra money. If we as citizens are aware then corruption will definitely decrease. So in conclusion, I would say if not totally it partly depends on us. Thank you.

Corruption is a blackhead on our Indian society. Not only Ppliticians, powerful people, but somewhere we are responsible for this also. I totally agree that Solution of corruption is a mirage till we catch the public figure. To tackle this we should find the route of the corruption and the route is somewhere linked to top public figures.
