The unfortunate actuality in India is that iniquity often captains moral principles. An opacity has developed in India over time. Even as a country suffering from the whips of colonialism, some Indians were, in the past, known for their unparalleled obsequiousness. Corruption is not just limited to bribery; it is one of the most culpable sins which is widely prevalent in India today. In fact, it characterizes a lascivious self-indulgence of the most abominable of the human race.
Indubitably, one cannot escape from the fact that corruption is a pre-existing notion in the Indian society. India has espied the origin and evolution of uncanny classifications in a society, prejudices and of course, a period of brutality. The plebeian desire might just be for everything, a plain folk might imagine his pecuniary difficulties and of course, the affluent might want more of power and money. A hierarchy of the deep-rooted abuses of lack of democratic tradition and individual rights, making every Indian feel insecure about his social, economic and political conditions is undeniably, a probable cause for corruption. When people hook themselves to misconceptions, stereotypes and there is absence of freedom coupled with narrow mindedness which fails to separate the metropolitan from the provincial, one knows what to expect. A bureaucratized socialism in India has exterminated the legal, economic and blossoming democratic ideas laid down by the Europeans. Traditional systems forming an immature civilization spoiled the virtue of equality. It was this very classification of a citizenry which failed to mark its evolution and instead, resorted to self-harm and started turning backwards. The power given to the higher sections of society has driven the common people to follow the rotten ways. A lack of sensibility in a certain section of the society has made them think if committing crimes as a way to achieve. The egotistic Indian and the downtrodden Indian might be different but it is the very absence of judgement and the invincible iniquity in both that makes them intersect, and that's the origin of corruption.
There is a lack of sensibility in deciding upon the pious and impious. There are black drops which drool upon our social and political systems. These black spots flood pages and reports each day. But it is the painful truth- the very own conception that lingers in the minds of every Indian has to be eradicated. It is a contagious ill, damaging our own inner self in the same way in which, it helps to escape from our quandaries.
