It is overtly and covertly apparent in all forms with different names on different occasions.
From the social to the political sphere, it has pervaded deep and pierced the social fiber of society and political transparency in administration. It becomes a glaring disease and unruly plague spiral to everywhere.Masses are being exploited under the shadows of corruption-culture in offices,departments and so else.

The mind and soul lurk in ignorance of ,officers, assistants, clerks etc who are making corruption and make values and teachings upside down. It is marveled fact such persons who have acquired high degrees and are also called educated ones are involve in corruption . This is not generalization and sweeping judgment for all but a naked truth and reality. Mind does not stop but ontologically working and new questions cross over the mind.

Education and knowledge is supposed to modify the behavior, change.God-consciousness,self-realization and spiritual upbringing and not make huge stuff of information and instruction. Before anything a person should be a good human being and embodiment of good qualities then we can expect good from him or her. To make a human really a good human being is the task and purpose of education.To wash out and end the corruption-culture is herculean task and for this seminars, Anti-corruption rallies fall short for removal of corruption. Besides the most important and necessary effort to uproot its roots is making change in the education system and curriculum which should be spiritual upbringing oriented and instill a good spirit and character in the people. So then we can expect and see the end of corruption.
