India Against Corruption

No matter who you are or what you do, everyone in India has heard about Anna Hazare.  Team Anna Hazare, has been protesting at ramlila maidan (in New Delhi) against the Government and is trying to push the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Over the years, Corruption in India has grown by leaps and bounds.  Everywhere there is some or the other form of corruption.  From getting a motor driving license to getting admission in a school/college, we i.e. the common man has to face corruption at all levels.

At bigger levels there is bigger corruption.  Indian politicians have found a way to exploit the system in the way they want it.  May it be, organizing Common Wealth Games or building roads, corruption is everywhere.

Corruption has made our nation handicapped.  Team Anna hopes that by implementing the Jan Lokpal Bill we can curb the corruption at high level by 60-65%.  I certainly hope that it gets implemented.

But what about us?  

At times, in many situations, we feel helpless against the system.  To get around it, we ourselves fuel the corruption.  Its high time that we change ourselves.  How many times we have given 100 Rs to the traffic cop and not taken a receipt?  I am sure most of us have done this, I certainly have done it.

Corruption is a two way process, person who is taking money is corrupt and person who is giving money is also corrupt.  We common man have to make sure that from now on, we will never every fuel corruption ourselves.  If we can do that, corruption can be reduced even further.  This is the first step!

Team Anna is taking great pains to push the Jan Lokapl Bill, the least we could do is change ourselves and stop fueling corruption.

In my entire life span, I have never seen India as united as it's today!  People of India want to get rid of corruption. 

A few days back, if we asked who he/she was, they would say they are Hindu, Muslim, Christian etc. but today we are all Indians!  Indians who want a change!  We have forgotten our petty differences and have reunited.  It feels like a nation with 1 Billion+ people, aiming for one thing i.e. get rid of corruption!
My only message to government is, you better pay attention to our demands, else wait and perish!

There are very few times when we get to be part of history, in India today is that day!  Lets support Team Anna in this historic movement to remove corruption from our country! 

Charity begins at home, lets take a oath today that we will not fuel corruption in any way!  No more bribes!

Lets do whatever we could to support this movement in whatever way we could!  Jai Hind!


  1. Shabbash mere sher !! Go India ... Let us support Deep and each Indian who thinks in this fashion ..

  2. Deep,
    I think u have heard the song of Neil young, HEART OF GOLD, finally i think we have found the 'Heart of Gold'. Really its a historic moment, at one time, I became hopeless of the political will of our leaders. But Anna made it through. Its time celebrate. God grant him thousand years, so that he can lead us through every such fights.

  3. Hi deep I am against corruption like all fellow indians.
    Read my article and comment if you like it. Its for all fellow indians.

  4. Most of the communities in the entire Indian sub-continent(such as Bengali) succumbed in ‘Culture of Poverty'(Oscar Lewis), irrespective of class or economic strata, lives in pavement or apartment. Nobody is genuinely regret ed or ashamed of the deep-rooted corruption, decaying general quality of life, worst Politico-admin system, bad work place, weak mother language, continuous consumption of common social space (mental as well as physical, both). We are becoming fathers & mothers only by self-procreation, mindlessly & blindfold(supported by some lame excuses). 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 children those are born out of ignorance, extreme poverty. It seems that 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, involve themselves in ‘Production of (social) Space’ (Henri Lefebvre), initiate a movement by heart, an intense attachment with the society at large is very much required - one different pathway has to create, decent & rich Politics will definitely come up. – Siddhartha Bandyopadhyay, 16/4, Girish Banerjee Lane, Howrah-711101.

  5. I am working at isro.indian space research organization.People getting around 60k per month just because they are working as scientist in space app. center.Specifically talking about software section,many of these guys dont even know what is html c c++...etc getting 60k.Then how work is done??? They hire contract persons make a them 10 to 20k and get their workdone.If work is done credit is their and if late or failure fault is of the contract person...They are really blessed by indian govt. and still there are 1000 and lakhs of talented unemployed...peoples also take money under the chair.... so can anna restrict the corruption which is so deep routed... obviously not until god helps..
