Jan Lokpal, You and Your Corrupt Brain!

By on Aug 25, 2011 in Wisdom | 1 comment

Like all of you (I hope), I’ve been following the developments on Anna Hajare’s fast against corruption and strong Jan Lokpal Bill. From the comments on my previous post, it seems that the Indian intellectuals are hopeless and pessimists who think Jan Lokpal won’t cure everything. It’s been repeatedly said that Jan Lokpal Is Not ‘Cure-All’. But those who’ve cared to read the draft of the Lokpal Bill drafted by the civil society members, it looks quite appealing and strong. Everyone knows it won’t solve all your problems, but it WILL cut down corruption by a heavy margin – which along would help India save hundreds of millions of rupees. Will Lokpal stop you bribing the traffic police? I don’t think it will – but it sure will make the corrupt traffic cop think twice before accepting the bribe. Would you disagree with me...
