To day at least for India corruption is the password, an oft-heard subject of discussions and conversations on all kinds of forums and platforms. The simple layman's definition of corruption is to get a job done in a wrong and unethical way.
The first thing that we should analyze is that why do we do any work in a wrong way? The answer to this is quite simple and obvious. We do a job in a wrong way because firstly the right way to do it is very cumbersome, elaborate and time consuming, and even then, the chance is that the job may still not be done.
Besides getting it done in the right way is not possible as, people are so used to wrong doing that, the person trying out the way to do it correctly will appear foolish. Moreover, doing a task in the right way has no advantages attached to it.
For these simple reasons, the right and honest method of doing work is long forgotten and corrupt practices have become the way of life.
When this is the simple reason for us to do wrong, why should anyone even try to do anything in the right way? When we work honestly, the result is that, either the work is not done or it gets delayed.
Besides there is no bonus or incentive for the honest. This, is why, when we study right versus wrong the latter always prevails, then why not all do the wrong and reap a harvest? This is exactly what has happened in India.
It is not that, there is no corruption elsewhere in the world, this is a worldwide phenomenon and even to some extent human, but, in India it flourishes more than anywhere else.
This is because since the wrong doers and corrupt people are never punished, they never seen to suffer, they are encouraged all the more to be more and more corrupt seeing them enjoying the fruits of corrupt practices, the others honest or not so corrupt are also encouraged to take the path of success - corruption.
In this way even the one time honest people join the bandwagon of the corrupt because they find greener pastures...
