Corruption in India


The biggest boulder in the path of a country’s development, is Corruption.
It symbolizes the modern man’s decadence and degeneration.
In a world where wealth seems to matter the most,
The Corruption Virus, finds many a willing host.
It involves the abuse of power, position and influence,
To spread all manner of malevolence.
Who would dare to be a whistleblower?
In a country, where the corrupt seem to have all the power.
There is no transparency, at any level of Indian bureaucracy,
And Indians have become famous for their black money.
Corruption in India, has become a favourite topic of the jealous world’s discussion,
It is seriously affecting our country’s credibility and reputation.
Unless each individual makes a conscious attempt to be honest,
There is no real use of rhetoric, rage or protest.
Corruption cannot be curbed by any legislation,
The only solution seems to be moral rejuvenation.

    Many not aware the value of our democracy,
    we must powerful to control on servants
    There is no transparency, at any level of Indian bureaucracy,
    And Indians have become famous for their black money.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
