Corruption–no remedy in sight:


Talking volumes on corruption has no end. Talking continues, and so does corruption. People, the media, say every one, groans and grumbles taking a deep sigh of agony with utter chagrin on that count, but there is nothing happening, rather the situation is going from bad to worse. When Anna Hazare launched his movement against corruption first at Ramlila Grounds and later at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi, there appeared some ray of hope, but it was just short lived. Every thing almost collapsed thereafter. A failure of this type was indicated by me in one of my posts on the subject earlier titled as Anna Hazare’s movement and the doubts so expressed by me came true when Anna Hazare first tried to switch over to politics by forming a party for the purpose followed by his retraction. Anna’s team as a whole is confused and there is a large scale internal strife going on amongst its members with the result that the total movement is just bordering a collapse. The tussle between Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdeo over claiming supremacy on the movement was also the reason behind the entire struggle dwindling to zero point. Baba Ramdeo launched a parallel movement against black money parked in foreign country banks claiming its restoration to India, besides corruption. This was to show his strength on which front he succeeded to some extent, but result wise this too proved barren with people in general remaining only disillusioned and disappointed. Problem with Baba Ramdeo is that he is too ambitious a saint for supremacy and also too much in a hurry. The stubborn governmental machinery is all out to chase him to the last as a matter of revenge for the reason that he took cudgels to expose them on different counts one after the other.

The political parties without any exception are the ones who wouldn’t do any thing unless it directly serves their own interest. Many of them prefer to be called as messiahs of socialism, and if their own interest is involved, they have no hesitation in prescribing that if a cow can get pregnant, why not a bull too. Chances of recovery from this hell sort of a situation are only bleak unless some thing like a miracle occurs.

    socialism by sri Neelkanth ji ” if their own interest is involved, they have no hesitation in prescribing that if a cow can get pregnant, why a bull too”.

  2. When I first came to this country I was appalled at the apathy of the middle class towards corruption. Most jarring are the poorly constructed roads everywhere. I asked my husband why is there nobody complaining about the wastage of taxes they paid the government. He said first if you complain it’s pointless nobody will listen, second you might get into trouble so better keep quite. Although my husband is one person who doesn’t mince words to let someone know when something is not okay or not done properly but most people are afraid. Third he said since the country had been very poor before, now that things are better most people are happy just to protect their own interest. So I was quite glad about people joining protest initiated by Anna Hazare. My husband was skeptical about the sincerity of the protestors but I thought any protest that can caught the attention of the government is better than nothing at all. But as you said the political ambition of people involved doused the enthusiasm of the protestors. Every movement always becomes a platform of someone’s else political ambition eventually turning worse than their predecessors.

  3. SIR, YOUR OBSERVATIONS IN THE BLOG HAVE ITSELF ANSWERED THAT WHY THERE IS NO REMEDY FROM CORRUPTION IN OUR COUNTRY. THE VOLUME OF CORRUPTION IS SO RAMPANT AND AND IS SO DEEPLY ROOTED THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY BY WHICH IT CAN BE CHECKED IF NOT ERADICATED SPECIALLY, AS VERY RIGHTLY POINTED OUT BY YOU, ALL POLITICAL PARTIES ARE THEMSELVES INVOLVED IN DEEP CORRUPTION. ONLY GOD CAN SAVE US FROM CORRUPTION AND CORRUPT LEADERS OF OUR COUNTRY.
