Jan Lok Pal bill or corruption? What do you want?

I could not stop myself from writing this post on even though it is not directly related to Indian Stock Markets. It was today morning when I saw, on one of the TV channels, Anna Hazare protesting against corruption and pouring his heart out for Jan lokpal bill. I felt ashamed that I could not join him in Delhi. I felt even more ashamed being an Indian when I heard that bastard politicians have stopped this bill from passing in parliament since last 40 years so they can loot whatever they can from Indian people and deposit it in their swiss bank accounts!

I felt ashamed, being an Indian, remembering that people have to pay bribe just to get clearance for passports which is everyone’s civil right. I felt ashamed, remembering that people have to pay bribe to get driving license cleared even if they are perfect at driving! I have filed my papers to get my provident fund back from PF office in NOIDA, it’s been more than 3 months, their turnaround time is 45 days and I have not received my hard earned money for which I worked 12 hours a day. May be the PF office workers are waiting for me to go there, pay some bribe and then they would clear my PF!

I consider myself a “common man” who use to believe that if I had to get my work done, I have to pay bribe! Such is our Indian government and system is corrupt. I was in Delhi till one year back and then moved to United States for work, but I know very well, that at heart, I am an Indian with all the plans to return home soon for good. When I see differences between America and India, one thing pinches me, being Indian, that how corrupt our mentality has gone. Even to get a driving license, we need an agent! Why? Because traffic police department will not treat you well if you directly took your application to them without any “extra fees”. Same is the case for passports and other government office related works. Police/Customs/Revenue/local authorities/every government department. Such shameless have become our government agencies and most of the government employees who consider “chaay paani” as their birth right. Bloody shameless corrupt bastards they are (Sorry, I could not help myself). I literally feel like spitting on faces of these creatures whenever I have encountered them at airports or government offices. They don’t even let the “makkhi” on their faces to fly and ignore us as if they are “highly obligating” us by doing their work for which we pay out of our pockets (their direct salary and indirect chaay paani too).

Why are most of the government “servants”/beaurocrats are so corrupt? Why do they want “chaay paani” for doing their own work for which government and indirectly you and me pay thru our taxes? The reason is politicians. These bastard politicians (sorry again!) allow them and encourage them to gather money for them. Politicians, to me, look as root cause for this cancer of corruption. And I dare to challenge, 99% of politicians including Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, congress leadership, BJP leadership, LK Advani, Lalu, Jaylalita and each and every politician (read bastard) in Indian politics is an corrupt asshole. There is no doubt about it. I don’t understand from where these assholes get their Pageros, BMW’s and Landcruisers when their official salaries are Rs. 40,000 a month. Especially when I earned more than Rs. 40,000 a month and work for more than 10 hours a day but could afford only a Santro in that salary!

How did A. Raja dared to fool Indian laws to help Tatas, Amabanis and other corporates make thousands of crores keeping government at losing end? Because he knew that he would get away with no Indian laws against corruption. Just imagine the money that government lose on telecom spectrum scam could have been used to make infrastructure better which would have helped India progress a bit. But all I can see is all politicians and ministers are busy making money for themselves. Let India and common man, the Indian, go to hell! Same is the case with corporate. Did you see any corporate honcho like Tatas/Ambanis/Birlas/Jindals supporting Anna Hazare in past two days against corruption? No. Why? These are the same bastards who are busy looting common man and India from both sides, by manipulating government policies to make money and by manipulating stock markets to again make money.

It is a high time for us, as a citizen of India, to awake and fight against cancer of corruption. As a beginning from my home, I am starting with this post to express my feelings and let all my thousands of fellow investors who read regularly, know that I suggest everyone of us to start fighting against corruption, support Jan Lok Pal bill and Anna Hazare’s efforts to get it in place whichever way you can. You can join demonstrations in your city, nearest city to show the government playing games against this bill for past 40 years to avoid it, the power of common man! After all, government and all politicians are “Janata ke sevak” who has forgotten it completely and that common man is the owner of this country and not any Manmohan Singh or LK Advani or Lalwaa or Jaylalita. Neither Sonia Gandhi nor Rahul Gandhi and second generation of any politician who think they have birthright to rule on common man.

If you are an government employee, reading this and considers “chaay paani” as your birth right, don’t be shameless to ruin this country. Your child may spit on your face tomorrow for spreading corruption and being part of the bastard’s brigade


  1. we want jan lokpal bill

  2. Im not a govt. employee, but a common man with a broader thinking.. you blame govt employees for taking chayi paani, i would like to point out that even if it's not their birth right, it has become a necessity in this materialistic world. Just imagine, what salary a hawaldaar or peun have.. is it enough for them to send their child to a good school, or opt for a good coaching institute or capable of funding Engg or B-school fees? No.. you cant imagine that a person with around 2 lakh annual income can get their child a good education. And without good education, their family will continue to be poor unless they take a wrong route. You can blame the politicians, since they have a lot of perks and qouta which can fulfill their needs. Earlier , as my dad have told me, the govt employs were independant from politicians, and in some cases dominated them. But these people in the parliament made such laws, which forced govt employs to come under them. And from there the actual corruption started..

  3. This is one powerful message. Kudos to you sir!!!

  4. I agree with you sir totally,we need more people to know INDIA is are secular democratic country
    Nobody should escape law,one law one India

  5. are these politicians , bureaucrats,petty officials,police descended directly form heaven?they are common people like us who got the"opportunity" to get into positions of power and the rest of us rant against them till one of us comes into that coveted position.the fact Indians have lost integrity and morality.remember it takes two to be corrupt ,the taker and the giver.In my opinion both are equally responsible. it is possible that an upright officer is tempted with riches to do a favor and then threatened if not such a case who is more culpable?if lokpal bill will help we will give all the support .but in my opinion there are more than enough laws ,in fact too many archaic ,too many draconian, but no willingness to enforce them by the executive and judiciary.the honorable chief justice of india speaks about govt inefficiency etc but his own judicial system is in a total mess. with adjournments at the drop of the that no case is getting cleared soon and that too after you know what kind of corruption is that? the author talks of tatas,birlas and ambanis?what about the business community ? will they support this bill ?In the guise of MRP the loot of the people continues? if tomorrow they have to declare their margin % on cost price will they agree?it is a big mess and we have got the govts we if we really change in our everyday life and not just show support to Hazare because he is on fast something might come out.

  6. Considering current high price for all things, many of government employees might taking "chat pani" but this cancer is there for long time and needs to be stopped.

    The other point is that how can the government employee send their kids in school or get basic things. If you see the total amount of corrupted money, you cn build millions of school and hospital from that money for poor and middle class people where they should get service free of cost or with very nominal fees.

    I would say the corruption has to stop from all level and build the infrastructure to support poor and lower middle people, without seeing their cast.

  7. @Leopard: didn't the government employee knew how much salary he is going to get the salary in government job? If he needs more money ..he should work hard. No one has stopped government employee from working extra hours post office hours. Are they ready to do that? Are they ready to work hard to earn more?

    Being an IT industry employee I know how hard I have to work for a bit more salary than common man. At times I have worked for 14 hours a day. But I am satisfied at the end when I get my salary and When I know that I earn it from my own hard work. Are government employees ready to work more? They just want comfort and security of their jobs and along with it the opportunity to "earn more" in office hours. Who has stopped them to leave the job and do the business? But who will leave the easy money.

    These are all excuses. If they want good life, they should learn to work hard. Period.

  8. Good post.


    I have just signed a petition standing with Anna Hazare, who has committed to fast-unto-death -- unless the government agrees to create a powerful law called “Jan Lokpal Bill” -- which is desperately needed in India to fight corruption. Join me by adding your voices and helping build a national outcry and force Prime Minister Singh to urgent action:

    With Regards,

  9. Please don't blame all Govt employees. My late father worked for the Govt of HP honestly throughout his life and gave his best. From him we brothers (all in Govt service Centre and State) learnt one lesson, if you are honest to your country you will always be honest in your work. Honesty has to be taught at home, school and to be made a habit. Nevertheless, this LokPal bill is a must to check the cancer of corruption and I salute Anna Hazare and crores of people supporting him.
