Corruption is in vein: Be cautious with corrupt nation people!!

Corruption is a virus and cancer of any society and that are rampant in the third world nations compared to the first world. It seems that it is in genetic and is in the nature of the certain group of people. 

Nepal is ranked in the 141st place among 176 countries in the Corruption Perceptions Index, according to Transparency International (TI), a global corruption watchdog.

India is ranked 94 in the list with the score of 36 and China 80 with the score of 39. Pakistan is also ranked in the 139th position alongside Nepal with the score 27 out of 100 that is considered as the least corrupt.

Afghanistan stands 1st, Bangladesh 2nd and Nepal 3rd in the South Asian countries as the most corrupt natoins in the region. Sri Lanka has scored 40 while Bhutan 64.

Type of Corruption

3-Ms Corruption

- Monetary Corruption (Corruption of Money)

- Mind Corruption (Corruption of Intellectual property/knowledge)

- Mankind Corruption (Corruption of mankind)

3-Ps Corruption

- Power Corruption

- Political Corruption

- Professional Corruption

The TI report said the score secured by Nepal shows that government, state, political parties and political leadership are not serious about controlling corruption in the country.

TI said that lack of accountable leadership and effective public institutions in these countries underscore the need to take a much stronger stance against corruption. 

Former Chief Commissioner of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) Surya Nath Upadhyaya said that the situation in Nepal is worsening. "It is because of the political transition, impunity and lack of accountability," Upadhyaya added. 

“Governments need to integrate anti-corruption actions into all public decision making. Priorities include better rules on lobbying and political financing, making public spending and contracting more transparent and making public bodies more accountable to the people,” said Huguette Labelle, the Chair of Transparency International. 

“After a year of focus on corruption, we expect governments to take a tougher stance against the abuse of power. The CPI results demonstrate that societies continue to pay the high cost of corruption,” Labelle said.

The report states that many of the countries where citizens challenged their leaders to end corruption --from the Middle East to Asia to Europe -- have seen their positions in the index stagnate or worsen.

According to the report, Denmark, Finland and New Zealand have been named the least corrupt countries with a score of 90 each in the CPI, while Afghanistan, North Korea and Somalia with a score of 8 each have been ranked the most corrupt countries in the world.

The report said Denmark, Finland and New Zealand are helped by strong access to information systems and rules governing the behavior of those in public positions. 

“Corruption is the world´s most talked about problem,” stated Cobus de Swardt, managing director of Transparency International. 

“The world´s leading economies should lead by example, making sure that their institutions are fully transparent and their leaders are held accountable. This is crucial since their institutions play a significant role in preventing corruption from flourishing globally,” de Swardt said.

I realised that mind corruption leads to all form of corruption. Therefore, to wipe out corruption from our vein we've to learn to wipe out corruption from our mind. We need to make our mind pure, clean and non-prejudice in our thinking to see, hear and perceive things as it is.
