My ideas to repress corruption
Corruption is a virus swiftly reaching the roots. It's a menace which has entrapped almost all sections of the society. From the peon till the CEO, everyone shares a slice of the cake.
Eradicating this menace is a tough but possible task. I believe technological advancement is the best way to curb corruption. Five years back, all government data was to be registered in paper files and folders. Ten years from now, everything would be memory cards and chips. So, if all administrative policies will be formulated, adopted and implemented via computer systems, it will be very difficult for a crook to cheat.
One can enter bogus data in paper, but it's hard to fool the computer machine.
Unlike others, this is not a utopian idea. Technology has modified man's way of living. If we notice recent changes, we will find that schemes like e-governance have brought tremendous improvement.
Right to Information Act is another great strength that the common man has access to. Public awareness about this act can make a big difference. Now people have the weapon to get their government works done without paying any bribery. This act has benefited several awakened citizens of India who got their pending works done by availing the provisions of the act.
As the saying goes, 'Every drop makes an ocean'. Similarly, if every Indian keeps an eye on himself/herself, revolution can be brought. Value Education plays a prominent role here. If the person is a man of principles, he/she can control the temptation to be allured by money. There is no denial in the fact that money is power but then power shouldn't subdue our values. This is easier said than done but control over senses can make it happen.
If our leaders turn to be highly qualified and intellectually supreme like those in USA, no one can stop us from becoming one of the most uncorrupt nations. As education makes a person wise and there is less possibility for a wise man to turn corrupt.
Most of the multi-crore scams are led by political leaders. So, if basic qualification like graduation becomes mandatory for citizens to contest elections, making India corruption free wouldn't be a difficult task.
These were some of the random ideas to eradicate the menace of corruption. However, if seen specifically, there are numerous other ways to rid every sector of the society of this evil as no area is free from the greedy nature of humans!
