N S Venkataraman Ji

You quote *Swami Vivekananda ji in the stormy battles of corruption India has faced, over decades. It has been the handiwork of those who know better, and are NOT "down and out". In fact, it has been the other way around. We are dealing with millionaires wanting to become billionaires and so on. 
*Swami Vivekananda said   "Give me 100 energetic young men and I shall transform India".  (It ought to have read "young men & women")

That possibly was at a time when Indians were around 150 million, no more. Today we are 1.23 billion. Even if there are lacs of good, honest
Indians, the governance we are all a part of at the Centre or the States i doubt if it is run cum supervised by more than 15 to 20 thousand ! 

While matters had gone bad to worse in 2009 to mid 2014, the recent throw-ups (Vyapam/ MP, Rajasthan CM- issues, Anil Modigate) in the past 6 months and tom-tommed by the ones who believe , they came to rule us perennially, demonstrate the sick society we have become.

Solutions will take a few years, IF the adage " Na Khaunga Ga Na Khane Doon Ga" is applied regardless who is involved.
And not let justice go haywire beyond 24-36 months. Period. 

May be then, after tests/retests -- we may be able to say we are honest from election time through governance and the next election.

Otherwise, we will continue to live from one harboured smokescreen the next one !

India Against Corruption
                                                          CONCERNED  INDIANS   CAN  CHANGE FACE OF INDIA

It is unrealistic to think that some leadership will come from somewhere to restore good and corruption free governance in India.  In the past , it has been seen that those who were hailed as leaders of  anti corruption movement  have  used the leadership position as platform to  gain power and then become corrupt themselves.

The real central issue in the country today is there is little resistance to corruption and fleecing at ground level.

Resistance to small corruption will certainly have a chain effect and will  put fear in the minds of the corrupt people at various levels  in the course of time.

Swami Vivekananda said   "Give me 100 energetic young men and I shall transform India". The message of Swami Vivekananda is loud and clear. Obviously, what he stressed  was that small group of people  with determination to fight for  the cause of probity and truth and defy unjust conditions can alone transform India.

One cannot but recall that much publicised anti corruption movement launched by Anna Hazare lost its appeal too quickly,  since Anna Hazare was only insisting on Lokpal and improvement of governance without making any efforts to improve the mindset of average Indian.

The country now urgently needs such role models in nooks and corners.  Such persons need not shout or agitate but  should silently defy unjust demands at individual level.

The campaign for corrupt free and nepotism free governance and  ensuring corrupt free politics can certainly be achieved by a silent revolution on the part of the concerned Indians, who are now all over India in lakhs. They need to act at their own level and when sizable number of concerned citizens act  even without any coordination , the positive  impact will be seen sooner than later.

The society and the media may not immediately recognise them but their act of courage and conviction will slowly percolate and give confidence to others that such defiance towards the cause  of truth is possible by individuals and would be worthwhile. Such crusaders need to have patience and faith in the ultimate triumph of good over evil.
