CORRUPTION! CORRUPTION! CORRUPTION!
Not a single day passes without the news of corruption.
The country where global leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel, Lal Bahadur Shastri and Kamraj have taken birth and led a value-based life, is now facing the problem of corruption.
What does corruption actually means?
It means disregard for morality, integrity, character, and duty. It also means disregard for honor, right, and justice.
A corrupt person is the one who gives undue favor to someone in whom he has a personal interest or seeks material benefit from him. Thus those who genuinely deserve it as their right go deprived.
We can also say corruption is like AIDS. It spreads from one corrupt person to another. What can a common man or a single person do in such a situation? Nothing! But if all of us stand together and decide to put an end to this evil, the system can be improved.
The obvious consequences of corruption are in front of us. People lose their faith in the existing system, society disintegrates and the country becomes weak.
If we want a corruption free country then we need to root out corruption from its very depth. So that it may not raise its head up again. Though it seems very difficult to control corruption, it is not impossible. It is not only the responsibility of the government but ours too. We can eliminate corruption from the joint efforts of all Indians.
We must have a high principle to follow so that we may be role models for the coming generation. Let us take the pledge to create a society free from corruption. That will be our highest achievement as human beings.

BUT AN HONEST PERSON HAS VALUES”
