Will Hunger End Corruption?

Thousands of people in India are promising to go on hunger strikes unless the government moves to end corruption. India and Corruption are bosom companions and it is rare for anyone to get work done without paying off someone. Human rights activist Anna Hazare has undertaken several hunger strikes in order to make clear to the government his resolve to fast until death unless something is done to control endemic corruption which makes difficult efforts by poor and lower middle class people to attain equity since they lack money to pay off the “right people.”

India has the potential to become one of the major nations of the world in this century, but something has to be done to end corruption which infects all levels of government from the policeman on the beat to the minister on the prowl for a handout.
