Dear Mr. Venkataraman,

You have in a short article written very lucidly what we need to do to change the face of India. It is not big things and popular items that we have to fight against. Small injustices perpetrated have to be opposed wherever we are and such seemingly insignificant steps when added together from all across the country will make the change we long for. The problem is that we want to earn a name whenever we succeed in such fights and look for power and thereby our focus changes from fighting corruption and injustice to gaining popularity and power for ourselves. Hunger for power is also another form of corruption and that is why Gandhi and JP remained aloof from the pursuit of power.

We are fighting against privatisation of and corruption in the Government healthcare delivery system in the State of Jharkhand and we hope we will succeed but it is a long drawn struggle and we would welcome interaction with people who are working in the same field in their area.

Let us join hands together for a better India.

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.
