Some Indian leaders consider corruption as their birth right.  

The real change in Indian politics during the last forty years is that people with authority began to consider corruption as their birth right. Bribery and Corruption is the Asian Lubricant. Suppose the son of a good school teacher and the son of a black marketer rise to authority. What will each of them do? It is evident. Good birth is an important thing, which decides the destiny of nations. A few years back, Indian History Congress made a desperate plea, requesting bright students to turn to studying history, without which the field of Historical Research in India will be filled with dull wits, as if it has already not happened. The same is the problem with politics in India. Young men and women born in very good and decent families turn their backs to politics, as a result of which supreme positions in the establishment and administration of this country has become to be occupied by cut-throats, looters, pilferers, cheaters and stealers. Now they demand liberalization of laws against corruption and introduction of new laws and stringent measures against those who submit complaints against corruption. Exactly what their fathers made them like. The present situation in India is very much similar to that of the turbulent times of Jayaprakash Narayan. The only difference is, there is no Jayaprakash Narayan or Chandrasekhar now. But a World Revolution against corruption is going on, in the wake of which mighty governments are going under. Everyone knows this fact, but no one likes to think about its imminence, except the perpetrators of massive corruption in India. The present rush is to gather everything and flee before the storm comes.
