Will a non violence revolution in help Indians in elimination of corruptions?
September 6, 2011 2:05am CST
Recent agitations of Shri.Anna Hazare and Shri.Ramdev highlighted the bitter and worse side of Indian law and order. Moreover I feel they should be appreciated as they have taken those initiate steps or come forward to fight against the corruptions that too through non violence. On the other side corruptions are still going on. But there is also seen that atleast some parts are cleaned. I had observed that in my State Kerala in India, corruption have been diluted into the blood of most of government departments especially the police departments that had also this virus had spread to most of the public, they feel it is a part of life which is unable to taken away. Anyhow I wished the situations to be changed to better soon. At times I feel should I blame others before making myself uncorrupted. But to be faithful once I had been forced to bribe a policeman. Moreover, 90% of people I know have engaged in corruptions directly or indirectly in that very few admit that.

Hello Sham, To be very frank, I don’t think a non violence revolution will save our country from corruption. If we want out country free from corruption, it will be possible only if every individual think about the same way. Yes, each and every individual is important. In that case we don’t want a person like Anna. Anna was on fast in this place where lots of people gathered around the ground where he did the fast. Actually people are happy to get a representative because all they are tired up with corrupted system. But the truth is the corruption will remove only when all Indians will decide to work for the removal of the same. I am not sure how long we take for that ‘beautiful day’. You said that you have given bribe (I can understand the situation), that is the plight of the common people in India. We don’t want to give it but unfortunately every one is forced to do it and that tendency should be changed. I wish Anna could open some people’s eyes, at least some…

Thanks for such valuable response, I feel as you noted it is absolutely right each individual should think of it and mostly here if reacted as an individual or group and that too if they are not strong I feel they would have to face a big mess. But if all these individual gather to fight for better side I am sure it would give a good result. But mostly it is seen someone strong enough is needed as a leader to lead them. Anyhow I too feel as as you noted about non violence it might be outdated. There were individual fights they mostly resulted in isolated fights against corruption they lacked support, there were police personals, government personals, politicians so on who fought against corruption but lastly they all were lacking support from people. I wished to see a better change....

These are exactly my thoughts too Sreekala. Yes. No amount of 'sermons on the mount' will have any effect if the individual stays put with their policies of doing what they are doing today about which one need not elaborate. It is the individual that can make or mar.

I don't think corruption can be eradicated completely by any means. Unless the mindset of the people changes it can't be corruption free country. Who is corrupt? The citizens-You and me. Who is in politics-the citizens. Who is taking or giving bribes -You and me, the citizens of India. When any case is highlighted we say person A is corrupt. Look deeper corruption can be removed only by changing the mindset of the people.

These movements are aimed at bringing a stricter law to deal with corruption. Only strong laws will not help in curbing corruption. The are needed but the corruption can be eliminated only when people stop bribing. We are the ones who bribe official whether taking admission in college or caught by policemen. So we , the people have to change ourselves and our attitude to curb the corruption. And about laws. How many laws are followed in India?????????

Hello, agitation and with passing any new bill elimination of corruption is not possible. You are right that corruption is diluted in the blood of government department. Situation is alike in whole India. Every government department is corrupt. But who are offering bribe and who accepting it. These are peoples of India. To eliminate corruption first we must be change overself
