Corruption is today a world-wide problem. Almost all of us are aware that in our own countries some people in high positions have been charged for it. It is considered to be a spiritual or a moral impurity or a deviation from and ideal manner. It includes bribery and embezzlement. As I have mentioned earlier it occurs mostly in government sectors by the people in higher positions because of their greediness. So in a government “Political” corruption occurs when an office older or a government employee acts in an official capacity for his or her own personal gain. It is all about dishonesty and fraudulent conduct by those in power.
A corrupt person is termed immoral, dishonest and unscrupulous in his dealings. His disregard for honesty s and truth results in his society. Society will be effected while he is being benefitted. In my understanding corruption is continually destroying countries. Especially developing countries are affected by this issue. Corruption is the most dangerous enemy which shakes the faith in life. The author of the Arthasastra said that, “It has always been there like tie leech, but when the system grows weaker and the boat flounders, it gets bolder and drains its victims of the last drops of their blood”.
Corruption is an old practice, starts at the top and percolates down to the whole society. The old practice was widely spread over in the villages where the dishonest officials and the traders carry the germs of this disease towards innocent citizens in rural areas of the past. This has become a giant issue nowadays, the amount of bribery and embezzlement has increased by the time and finally the people are helpless victims of corruption everywhere.
