This wide spread disease of corruption can only be cured by a total revamp of its political, investigative and prosecuting systems. What we are seeing all around us today is nothing but loot. Loot of very high scale to the extent we can’t count the number of zeros. And as this started to unfold with the Commonwealth Games exposure, it got my goat. I started to be a part of a collective voice which became louder by the day. At times very shrill, not by choice, but by compelling circumstances. But all for one common cause---a well governed India--- a better India which makes us all prosperous and our next generation secure. This is the spirit behind this collection. If the corrupt can unite for their vested interest, why we, the victims, not unite for our own selves? Be the change!
