Nowadays corruption is spread everywhere. Unfortunately, in our country it has become a part of life. It has entered the roots of the Indian society. Corruption, nepotism and dishonesty have tarnished every fabric of our social life. The law of the country is too weak to deal with the corrupt elements with an iron hand. Everybody feels helpless in such a state of affairs. It is prevailing at all levels — economic, social, administrative, moral and spiritual. During the past few years the images of the country have been defaced beyond redemption. One cannot get his official work done, unless he pays a fat sum in addition to the official fee. Persons found guilty should be punished severely, so that no one can dare do so afterwards. People of strong character should be employed. Ministers and senior officials must set noble examples of an honest living free from corruption, nepotism and bribery. The government must launch a vigorous campaign against this social evil. Once corruption, nepotism and bribery in high places could be uprooted, soon the evil of the corruption will be uprooted from the entire society. And country will become corruption-free.
