There is not a single appropriate definition of corruption, because every one has their own interpretation, and we all have intellectual openness to think of it according to our own intellect level. I guess the word corruption itself is corrupted due to which; we can't find the appropriate definition of it.
In my view,
"Corruption is the devastation of someone's faithfulness through improper mean, like by giving up bribery or using an influential power to attain goals. Corruption means to ditch a grave of our values, integration and dignity."
The fact is that, all the countries are/were its prey for sure, and we all have to come across this word, now or then in our lives. In the recent years, this word has brought the whole new scenario in our lives. As the time is passing, corruption is increasing, even though the political leaders and the countries are trying to reduce it, but the fact cannot be changed, that it's a hard nut to crack
Governments, just for the private put on misuse nation's property without thinking that they have been given some responsibilities to take care of their country like a mother. We are like a child of our country, but unfortunately, corrupted peoples are behaving like our step mother, depolarizing us from the rights, which we should get. Moreover, not only governments, but the powerful peoples are also using their influence to get the things done which they want, on the basis of their supremacy power.
It's obvious, that if a government is corrupted, the whole nation will be corrupted.
Corruption is not only present in governments, but it's the root cause of every wrong action in private sectors also.
Corruption has ruined my life and many like me have also been affected by corruption in their lives for sure. Bitterly speaking, corruption is going on every where, and the whole world is corrupted. It's not just the part and parcel of the superior class societies only, but it belongs to all the societies, nations and countries.
If any one asserts, that the corruption is no more in their country, then I would have a uncertainty, because corruption is an ongoing and an endless process. If it ends on one side, it begins its cycle from the other side.
All individuals are corrupted in today modern world, and I m so ill-fated to be the part of it. My whole life, my wishes, my goals and determination in the past and still in the present have been affected totally due to corruption in our country.
