Sixty-one years of the Republic
Sixty-one years back, the People of India gave to themselves a Constitution, and proclaimed themselves a Republic.
One day back, a senior government official was burnt alive in broad daylight when he tried to alert officials about the pilferage of government property.
Is this the freedom and independence that the people of India fought so hard for? The freedom to steal what can be purchased openly. The independence to offer and accept bribes where things should work without them.
Corruption is the cause of all evil in the country. Remove it, and all problems are solved.
But remove it how?
