There is an article in IBNLive Blog which asks an important question. What is corrupt act and what is not? Where should we draw the line.
Corruption is closely related to rules and transparency. You put a wrong rule and remove transparency, every one will do that corrupt act without even thinking. You create a system where it is impossible to do the right act, or doing right act takes lot of time or money, then people will go and doing it wrong way.
So the Govt should find all these places with the following properties.. and make it steps to address them carefully.
- No transparency of anything.
- Right way is 100 times difficult than way.
- Is it basic fundamental right?(passport, gas, ticket)
- More than 30% do it in wrong way.
If a country is less corrupt then it has the following things in place, and because of them the corruption is less.
- Judiciary is fast and laws are strict
- There is no need for any corrupt act for 90% of daily needs of a person.
- Transparency is very high.
- Govt does not involve in business.
- Police does not need to listen to Politician.
Out of all this only Transparency is enough to remove every thing. Make every act transparent. Now see who will pay bribes, or who will take.
Try Try Try even if you fail again and again. I really believe in that. If we stop just because we have failed before, we will never be able to anything. So even after my previous attempt to do some thing for Loksatta Party have failed, I am trying to do some thing again this time.
My new initiative is to maintain a website(unbiased) for record keeping in politics. Yes it is for “RECORD KEEPING”. I want to record daily activities of political leaders, what they do, what they say in a organized searchable, comparable way.
As I belong to IT industry, I want to contribute to the political world in this way.
The task is too big, very difficult, but not impossible. It is not possible to do it by one person. I need help from every person who can help me. So check the website(what ever you see now is done in <8 hours). If you think you can help me, contact me. Or even if you want to help me, but don’t know if you can or not, then also send me a message.
I think I have known enough history to understand what humans did to each other over last 3000 years. Seen enough war movies to understand the feelings of people who are involved in killing or get killed.
From the beginning I have a doubt, why do we always blame the leadership for what a country and its people did to other country and its people? There are lot of instances in our 3000 years of history where a country attacked other country and killed people in other country without any regard to human life. There are instances when one race thinks they are supreme than others and started killing all other people(in millions).
In those cases, who is wrong? Country is nothing but people and who is running it. One person can not do anything to any other country. He/She has to do it through people.
People still exist, and if we think we have not changed, then those instances can occur again and again. If we think people have changed, I would like to see one real proof of it. I have not seen it yet.
How long it will take for one particular set of people start believing that they are superior race compared to others?
