Gone are those days when people sustained in a 'World of Equipoise and Equanimity.It becomes a matter of unsurmountability to locate an exclusive mortal who remain unexposed to the influence of the pernicious vices exhibited in the apron of society. This piece of work presents about the evil which dominates today's world and the role of youngsters to build a principled society.

The primeval society,as assumed by us,consented the people to live for others(in the society) and by living for the cause of others,they lived for themselves.Everything was in common to them and this rendered them with all the fruits of the world,though we trace the vestiges of a feudal society. The Second World War, which,brought about an 'upheaval of the society',in turn,preceded the downfall of the mighty nations of the world which had previously enforced their ordinance over the petty nations. It was a tremendous revival. And in our country too, the 347 years of 'mortifying slavery' under the supremacy of an exotic realm was exterminated due to the incessant rebellion of our fighters who were persuaded by Mahatma Gandhi, Bala Gangadhar Tilak, Subash Chandra Bose and many other patriots. This resulted in 'The Independence' of our country and also laid the foundation for a civilisation which would stand by its own interests. And Gandhi was one who dreamt of a 'CORRUPTION FREE INDIA'. Its quite unnatural to think if Gandhi had got no notion of the cancerous disease of corruption which would become the very threat for the healthy function of the domain within decades. He gave or lived not in a 'corruption-free India' but an India of lesser corruption which has turned,now to be a 'Country Pested with Corruption'.

Meanwhile, Corruption is 'the deviation from the ideal. It involves not only bribery and embezzlement,as many of us assume but it embraces a larger ground...It is a global phenomenon and it is omnipresent.It has progressively increased and is now rampant in our society. By being able to define what something is,then we can understand how to prevent it. That is not same as suggesting that we ignore corruption. It is the opposite. Blandly labelling something as corruption is

meaningless. For example, we cannot cure cancer unless we know what type of cancer it is.
"The challenge is to distinguish between Systematic and Individual Corruption, Petty and Grand Corruption, Moral and Legal Corruption, Rumours and Reality of Corruption"-Dr.Elaine Byrne. Corruption,on the contrary,is not only a matter of self-interest but it is widely schematized as one of the basic norms which make the Government proceed in its mundane course without being circumscribed as a breach.It does not affect one's own predisposition,but it draws a larger circle involving 'The Bourgeoise community and also inseparably The Proletariat or working class'

One cannot purely proclaim that he sustains without being afflicted by the very issue of corruption.Right from the fodder that we consume to survive,the commodities we use and every other entities get immersed in the mud of corruption and then we get 'em. Bribery is the major social evil which crushes the concept of 'Democracy'.Our jurisdiction restricts bribery and one who gets and gives bribe are being vehemently punished. However, this practise is not yet completely subdued. Political Corruption is another evil which inverts the fate of our lives. The only elucidation can be the awakening of today's modern youth... The notion of a vibrant and rational youth should be considered from the birth of the individuals...The Family constitutes a 'small institution'. It...
