Most of the developing countries are struck by the evil of corruption. This is holding back the progress of the country. These days it has become common and is being seen in every sector. Corruption is not just in our politics but it is rooted down deeply in every corner of every sector.
It is the biggest terror in all the developing countries. In developing countries corruption is one of the reasons for rich becoming richer and poor becoming poorer. From the ten rupees note which a clerk earns illegally to the thousand crore rupees which a businessman earns illegally is said to be corruption. And in my view, corruption starts with the common people itself. They are the ones who remain blind to it and encourage it. When there are givers, we find receivers. People just give money or anything with value just to move their work forward and just to get it done.
Wherever you go, you find someone or the other being corrupt. And the other main fact is that we who are against it, are supporting it directly or indirectly by some means. People just offer money to save time and the biggest problem is that no one likes to stand in queues for a long time. People these days are even getting the illegal work done by corrupting, and the people being corrupted know that it's wrong and against ethics but still remain blind because of their greed.
We could say that corruption has got rooted due to the ignorance of the people who just keep on blaming the system. There is no doubt that corruption cannot be removed without the initiative of the people, so we just can't simply blame the government for this.
Some people want to end the evil of corruption; some people are in favour of it. Unless we unite and stand on the same word to fight against it, even we would be trapped by this evil. Once trapped, it will definitely be very difficult for the person to escape from it.
Finally, I would like to say change must start from home itself.
"CHANGE YOURSELF TO CHANGE THE SYSTEM"
"RAISE your VOICE AGAINST CORRUPTION."
