Jan Lokpal Bill

Posted in Uncategorized by K P Ramachandran on October 2, 2011

The Jan Lokpal bill is supposed to be the answer to India’s massive,endemic corruption. But , unless we understand the root cause of this malady, we cannot root out this from Indian society. Corruption in India is a cultural aspect. It is everywhere. Indians tolerate corrupt individuals rather than correcting them. Why Indians are corrupt ? Primarily this is in our culture. We bribe God for favors. One minister gifted Gold and diamond Crown worth 45 crores to Lord Balaji. Another person gifted Gold equal to his weight to Lord of Guruvayoor. Even people of other religions also gift valuables to God for personal gains. Indian culture accommodates such transactions morally. Even in Indian history we can see the foreign invaders bribe some small kings to capture other territories. Hence it is evident that this bribe culture was prevalent in India for centuries. If we sincerely wants to eradicate this dangerous trend, we have to teach the general public first. They have to be taught to be honest and straight forward . This is the first step towards the successful implementation of this Lokpal bill. Only  honest and upright citizens can make our country a clean corrupt free nation.
