Eradicate Corruption - Build A New India  
Building a new India is almost impossible as long as there is the cancer of corruption in it. Corruption is an obstacle that the people of a country must overcome to be a happy nation. The national goals of economic prosperity, infrastructural development, and overall advancement will remain elusive until corruption is wiped out from our country. Eliminating corruption is impossible without the collective will of the people and the Government. The next major revolution India will have is anti-corruption revolution. It has already started.  
Indians have seen so much corruption and its horrible consequences that they have only one yearning; they all want to live in a corruption-free India. Every Indian wishes to breathe in a cleaner, prosperous, progressive, stronger, self-reliant, more organized India. This is possible only when the evil of corruption has been totally vanquished.  
Unless every Indian (especially in the public sector and Government-run departments) discards corruption totally, the objective of a new prosperous India can never be achieved.  
Einstein quite rightly said, The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything. India is a developing country facing many challenges. Corruption is the most detrimental of them. India was placed at 76th position out of 168 countries with a score of 38 out of a possible 100 in Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index 2015.  
Corruption is like a canker to the health of the economic and technological prosperity of a nation. Corruption became rampant with the winning of freedom. Owing to the fallible democratic system and lack of stringent punishment mechanism for the culprits, it thrived, more in politics, government administration departments. Gradually its nexus became more nefarious. Corruption in India spread as a result of the connection between bureaucrats, politicians, and criminals.  
Political corruption is the worst in India. The major cause of concern is that corruption is weakening the political body and damaging the supreme importance of the law governing the society. In the past few decades there was every conceivable scam and scandal in all key ministries. These cams and scandals tarnished the image of the country nationally as well as internationally. There were so many scams that people lost complete trust in the government. Indian Coal Allocation Scam, 2G Spectrum Scam, Commonwealth Games Scam, Telgi Scam, Satyam Scam, Bofors Scam, the Fodder Scam, etc, are some of the many scams that were done by elected ministers, politicians, bureaucrats, and high government officials. The Indian Law system is so incompetent and vulnerable, that in spite of being guilty, politicians, bureaucrats, high government officials remain scot-free.  
Now the most crucial question: How to curb this evil of corruption? Although many anti-corruption agencies have been created to fight curb corruption, but they exist in name only. The only solution to the problem of corruption is people's involvement in eradicating it from the face of our country. They will have to take the issue into their hands. The French Revolution and the Russian Revolutions stand as perfect examples which show when the people of a country unite against an oppressive evil, how the evil just vanishes. Since they are the losers in all the scams and scandals, as the money wasted and misused is their tax money, they have the right to curb scams and scandals. There must be large-scale protests by the people against scams and ill practices.  
Of late owing to the growing awareness and protests by the people, the Central Government has been taking some steps to curb corruption. Some anti-corruption agencies have been set up. Agencies such as RTI, the Central Vigilance Commission, and PIO have been created. The people, along with their unified protest, must use these agencies to curb corruption. The media can play a great role in curbing corruption. The concerted efforts of the people of India, anti-corruption departments, and media have the power to root out this evil from India. One thing is crystal clear; unless people themselves pledge to eradicate corruption, this evil will continue to exist. So it is possible for India to become totally corruption-free, provided Indians resolve to be corruption-free themselves. Let's join hands and eradicate corruption from the face of our country. The day corruption dies, a new India will automatically emerge and stun the world with its advancement in all fields.
