First what exactly is this Jan Lokpal bill?! For all those ignorant people who still don’t know what the whole country is heatedly debating about please go hit this website http://www.indiaagainstcorruption.org/lokpal.html (Its High time you know what all people around you are talking about!)
For those of us who know what it is all about – Welcome to the Debate of the century!(Debate for the ruling government & not for simplistic citizens like us! We are pretty clear about what we want!)
I strongly believe in a fact that we are the main reason for corrupting many people in this country.How many of us have paid those few “EXTRA” bucks to get a driving license or a passport or may be even a cinema ticket ( I can proudly tell I have done none of the above! Never watched a movie with black ticket & neither do I have a driving license nor do I drive a vehicle without one!) How many of us have escaped form getting a parking offense ticket or a rash driving ticket by paying that traffic police a 100 bucks!?!! Yet we talk about politicians being corrupt! what an irony!!! Its we who have corrupted the entire nation by bending rules to our comfort!
Like the famous adage ” Charity begins at Home”, its must be ” Anti- corruption Begins at home” ( or something like that which conveys the essence of anti-corruption movement!) If we stop giving they would stop taking!
Its not required that one must go sit in a fast or join the candle campaign to show their support to the Jan Lokpal draft. If we simply do our civic duties properly half the problem is solved! The rest of the problem can be very well taken care by the Lokapal bill.
