Zero Corruption?
by Ananya S Guha Bookmark and Share
 

Now it is a helicopter scam. The skeletons from the cupboard are being unravelled. This should have been done earlier even as warning bells were sounded. Now that  the Italian government has ordered a probe, the Indian government has followed suit. But why didn't it pay heed to it earlier when names were even sounded? Why was this silence ? Was it a matter of complicity? These are disturbing questions, and to think that these same helicopters were paraded on Republic Day! What a shame! Shame after shame, scandal after scandal are taking place in our country. The government is unmoved, doesn't bat an eyelid. Opposition leaders only shout, things are in pandemonium.

But the grievous part of it was the manner in which it was executed, like the coal gate scandal, in flagrant violation of procedures. Once again the Central Audit must come to our rescue and tell us what exactly happened. The disconcerting thing is it happened in Italy. Foreign agencies like in  the Bofors deal are once again involved. Is it because the kick backs are more there?

One key person apparently is unnamed. That raises an eyebrow. Why this silence, is it because the person is a big wig? Will the matter be hushed with abrasion, as it is normally done?

I think we have become immune to such things by now. We are also shameless. Corruption has not only invaded every bit of the society, but has eaten into our body, soul and spirit. Then we talk of this scheme or that scheme for poverty alleviation, fattening our coffers and our bank accounts at the same time. The supposed involvement of a former Air Marshal makes the matter more convoluted and dirty, together with his brothers. This is corruption and nepotism working wonders. God forgive us! Now even the armed forces wear a tainted picture.

Sports, refer Commonwealth games, armed forces, are also now coming into this unscrupulously  sordid picture.

More will be unravelled, till we limp to the elections. Again it will be full circle, The cycle is not at all vicious, it has been restored with normalcy. We accept it. I think we should  pass a bill to legitimize corruption, so that everyone gets a fair share of the pudding.

At least the poor will be richer! Ashis Nandy Sir, I now really get your point, zero corruption is not only not desirable, it is also not possible!
