    Only, we the citizen of India can eradicate the corruption to a large extent or even completely( in ideal condition). Like the ad of Tata Tea'Jaago Re' we should stop giving bribe even for small matter though at times it is not possible practically, but still we should inculcate the habit of not giving bribe will reduce the corruption to certain extent. By electing good leaders from our constituency and educating general public about corruptions are the other measures to stop corruption from our country.
    I don't know why people at such high level go for such illegal ways of earning, since they are already availing all the facilities. Nobody will take the money with them after death nor their family members can use it as they have to hide those money everytime.
    Rather if those money are utilised in better ways then they themselves will get benefited from it. For example,a luxury house if situated in a remote area with no infrastructure facility will have no use. Because for every basic amenities one has to go far places to avail those facilities.

    The most alarming issue is corruption. How to remove this is million dollar question. We have to first go through causes and historic background as well as experience in other countries. Corruption can be uprooted by removing the causes that encourage people to indulge in this.

    Corruption is universal and dates back to ancient times. We find mention of 'bribe' even in Kautilya's arthashastra. This was called 'utkoch'. Kautilya gave many suggestions for preventing corruption.

    Man is selfish by nature. He has also the power to transfer wealth to his sons and daughters by will and to inherit from forefathers. The instinct for serving own and family's financial interests provides motive for corrupt practices.

    Man is a social animal but individualism and family orientation guide him more. Hence, an individual attempts to serve his own and his family's narrow interests little bothering about nation and society as a whole.

    Thus selfishness,family orientation and individualism are the causes behind corruption. We need to bring about spirit of nationalism, patriotism and social consciousness. Social consciousness and patriotism must replace individualism and narrow family orientation. There is an old Sanskrit shloka that says- One should forgo self for family, family for village and village for nation. But now, people are always ready to forgo everything for self and family.

    Do the people favor corruption. There are double standards. Everyone wants honesty and fair practice. But with an exception. All should be honest except him and his family. even a dishonest tax evader wants honest employee. This double standard is also responsible for corruption. Here I am reminded of a story. Once there was famine. The king was advised that if the pool is filled with milk, the sky will be covered with rain clouds. The king ordered that everyone should pour one glass of milk in the pool. But no body wanted to waste his personal milk by pouring in the pool. everyone hoped that the pool will be filled with milk. Everyone though that others would pour a glass of milk and hence he could pour only water. Thus next day, the pool was filled with water only. The same is about honest today. Everyone expects that others will be honest and so he may afford to be dishonest. The result is that entire nation is seriously diseased with menace of corruption.

    How to remove the corruption. It is misunderstood that religion and saints can play any part. Personal greed is the cause of corruption. Religion does not curb greed. Rather people are 'bribed' by the saints and religion with promise of 'apsaras', 'hoors', 'somras' all good things and luxury in the afterlife. Who will wait for afterlife pleasure. why not enjoy this life itself.

    It is necessary to impart good moral education clearly explaining the structure of society and the need for honest behavior. It should be clear beyond doubt that corruption does nobody good. One may gain by getting bribe or undue benefit but he has also to pay bribe to others. One may sell theater tickets in black but then he will also have to buy railway ticket in black. Corruption is a double edged sword.

    Besides best education and moral orientation, there will always be some who will not mend their way. The penal system must be harsh on corruption. The punishment for corruption must be harshest. This is more heinous than murder and rape. Like China, there should be death penalty for corruption.

    Corruption comes from the individual mind and spreads like a storm.So each one has to take a decission that I will not bribe or will not accept bribe.Also the politicians are to be strictly handled if a corruption is proved against them.

    It is true that corruption like any thing else begins with thought. But why such thought comes. The reason is selfishness, individualism and family orientation. These need be replaced with patriotic feelings and nationalism. A truly patriotic person will not bribe. Strict punishment is also necessary for corrupt act. Presently, corruption is at a big level and almost everyone is involved. So, there is need for a big political, social and cultural movement to change people's mind set.

    corruption can be eradicated by government being strict. It should take action on the people who are corrupted. The corrupted people should be punished severely, so that the remaining people can be corrupted.

    This is better said than done. The Government consists of corrupt ministers and bureaucrats. How and against whom they can be strict. The corrupt have power and authority. Corruption is way of life. who will punish whom?

    Individualism and blind family love is cause of corruption. Replace individualism and family love with nationalism or patriotism. This needs a change in mindset that needs total cultural revolutionary campaign. As short term measure, strict disciplinary action is also needed. There should be death penalty for corruption.
