About this book

A hard hitting account on the growing malpractice of bribery, CORRUPTION IN INDIA methodically proves that -
1. In India, at least 90% of those who have opportunities to be corrupt are corrupt and, the corrupt dislike being termed as such in public.
2. The families of corrupt do not consider this menace of corruption a crime in the least.
The book correlates corruption with socialism, which keeps the salaries of government servants low but at the same time vests them with enormous power to financially thrive on the misfortunes of the common man. The book is an eye opener and a precise account on how despite having laws, nothing can be achieved till the society takes up a stand against it.
