In India, corruption is something we all learn to live with. Corruption has only increased with economic privatization that has engendered a materialistic lifestyle. One finds individual attitudes becoming increasingly opportunistic. Because of the erosion o religious and moral values, somehow corruption has become acceptable. There are role models animal in public life. The fear of God is gone, and so is the fear of law. Few are caught and fewer convicted of every 100 corruption related crime, only about six are finally convicted. All this has made corruption a’ high-profit low-risk business”.


Transparency international is a global organization that seeks to empower civil society to participate in effort to fight corruption. Here are some ways advocated (and implemented) by this nonprofit organization with which we can make difference: public debate, ask your self and your friends why things seem to going wrong, and how they might be corrected. Have brainstorming session to come up with ideas as to how systems can be made more transparent and accountable. Write letter to newspaper, but try suggesting improvement, not just complaining about the way things are at present. It is small steps like these that snowball into movement that change society. You can also join organization like common cause and he Indian chapter of transparency international, which are committed to combating corruption. Demand transparency, group are campaigning for access to official information. Once legalized, get information of, for example, small scale developments projects at the village level, take it into the villages, and inform the people there. They are the ones who know who has really been paid, and how much. At village meetings, officials may be asked to explain why the money has not gone where it should have, and can be shamed into changing their behavior in future. Be a whistleblower, the most effective thing that individuals can do is to complaint when they see corrupt occurring. Make sure there is no innocent explanation of the activities you see happening because what less senior people see is not necessarily the whole story. You don't want to confront an honest boss with a complaint that they are corrupt! Yet unless people have the confidence to raise their concerns with people they trust and are in a position to do something about it, nothing is ever going to get better. Form an’ integrity circle’, if you are working in a department with a reputation for corruption, form an 'integrity circle' with like-minded colleagues. Each member makes a pact with all the others that he/she will not be involved in corrupt activities and will support each other if anyone has any problems over this refusal. Declare your office a 'Corruption-free zone'. You may also put up signs saying 'Please do not offer bribes as we do not accept them' or 'Bribes are unnecessary-we are paid by the state to serve you'.
Remove temptation, when you see opportunities to remove unnecessary blockages in systems that serve no useful purpose but which create opportunities for bribes to be extorted from the public, write to ministers, MPs, MLAs, newspapers, drawing attention to the reforms needed. Build national integrity systems, The National Chapters of Transparency International are building coalitions to strengthen integrity systems in their countries. The framework for strengthening integrity systems is set out in TI's National Integrity Source Book. This describes practical reforms that can be taken in each sector of society. Most anti-corruption drives or remedial measures taken are geared towards taking stringent steps to punish those who are corrupt or to instill fear in them. Spiritual guide to prosperity, You may have unconsciously fostered a 'poverty mentality' in your life that will forever keep you imprisoned within a sense of lack, no matter how much you earn or how many material possessions you acquire. It may also be the point where the possibility of corruption first enters one's life.
Roy Eugene Davis, a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda, says in Seven Lessons in Conscious Living: ''Every devotee of God should be prosperous.'' He goes on to give some attitudinal changes following which one can live truly fulfilling lives:
• When working or providing a service for which you will receive money, give value for value received. Ideally, the work you do or the service you perform should be enjoyable, in accordance with your skills and abilities and should have constructive effects.
• Don't spend money. To spend (Latin expendere, use up or consume) is to waste. Exchange the value that money represents for what you consider to be of value to you. Avoid buying nonessentials.
• Save a specific amount of what you have or earn. Invest it to earn more money for future use.
• On a regular schedule, freely yet thoughtfully give a portion of what you have or earn to responsible, well-managed endeavors which serve the public good and assist individuals in need.
• Give generously from your awareness of being prosperous and thankfully accept the abundance that life provides for you.
• Avoid the beggarly attitude of thinking that you can, or need to bargain with God—that when you make a financial contribution to a worthy cause or volunteer your services you will receive in proportion to your giving or even an excess.
• Learn to be affluent-to always be in a continuous flow of resources and supportive events, circumstances and wholesome relationships for the highest good of yourself, others, the planet, and the universe.
• Transcend the idea of duality, which is the erroneous opinion that god is separate from you or anyone else in the world.
