Tulsidas said: “I am troubled by two kinds of people; the good people and the bad people”. When asked how the good people troubled him he replied: “The good people trouble me because of their absence and the bad people trouble me because of their presence”.

Good people are not absent they are in the shadows and sidelines. Bad people have swamped the stage. Their doings have reduced the faith of people in the Administrative machinery in India. Even intellectuals and ideologues are feeling that with such inefficient and largely dishonest machinery, there is little hope of bringing about any progress or economic development. The preamble to the Indian Constitution says: “We the people of India, having solemnly resolved to constitute INDIA into a Sovereign Socialist Secular Democratic Republic and to secure to all its citizens, Justice, Social, Economic and Political… equality of Status and opportunity… in our Constituent Assembly this Twenty Sixth day of November, 1949, do hereby adopt, enact and give to ourselves this Constitution.” In the directive principles of the Constitution, the State shall strive to promote the welfare of the people by securing and protecting a Social order with justice, economic and political, in all Institutions of National life. How difficult it is to achieve this task of reaching these lofty goals set by the founding fathers of our Constitution with corruption prone Administrative machinery?

We believed in ‘Simple living and High thinking’. We are seeing now ‘High living and simple thinking’. We were taught eating in public and easing in private; it is the opposite now. Newspeak has coined expressions like ‘Speed money’ ‘Hush money’ ‘Slush money’ and so on.

Police Curroption

...Police corruption is a complex issue. Police corruption or the abuse of authority by a police officer, acting officially to fulfill personal needs or wants, is a growing problem in the United States today. Things such as an Internal Affairs department, a strong leadership organization, and community support are just a few considerations in the prevention of police corruption. An examination of a local newspaper or any police-related publication in an urban city during any given week would most likely have an article about a police officer that got caught committing some kind of corrupt act. Police corruption has increased dramatically with the illegal cocaine trade, with officers acting alone or in-groups to steal money from dealers or distribute cocaine themselves. Large groups of corrupt police have been caught in New York, New Orleans, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles, as well as many other cities. Corruption within police departments falls into 2 basic categories, external corruption and internal corruption. In this research project, I will concentrate on external corruption. Recently, external corruption has been given the larger center of attention. I have decided to include the fairly recent accounts of corruption from a few major cities, mainly New York, because that is where I have lived in the past year. I compiled my information from a number of articles written in the New York Times over the last few years. My definitional information and background data came......

Uncertainity Avoidance’s the government’s duty and problem to come up with a solution. We speak of corruption as when people use their power to illegaly benifit themselves by influnceing the functioning of the state( As said by Lord Acton “power tend to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely”, we see that in countries with low UA the rate of corruption is higher (Geert Hofstede, 2010). Countries with high UI have strict laws to deal with corruption, nd these laws are followed. In low UA countries the laws are written, but they are not followed easily as the people with power can influence the law making authorires. But there is a flaw in this hypothesis, that when a poor country with a low UA suffers with curroption; it cannot be related precisely to the UI of the country. For e.g. if the salary of the employee is not enough to take care of his daily needs, then he is forced to take a bribe without the UI of the country. Conclusion The future of the theory of UA is directly reted with the anxiety level of the people of the countries. When anxity increases the UA of the people increases (Geert Hofstede, 2010). Lyns did research in field and related the anxiety level to the wars the peopel are facing. In the present world people are not facing with direct wars (except for a few countries in Africa and the Middle East), but they are fcaing crises. The urbulent tiems could be man made(the finacial crisis) or natural(Hurricans and Tsunami). The......
