A quick jotting before the thought is lost.
What I had kinda predicted when the Anna Circus had erupted is slowly coming true. Most of the “leading
jokers lights” in the circus are now beginning to chant the “my clown is funnier than yours” mantra.
Which is why I had warned that this isn’t the way to fight/check corruption.
Recall this dialogue from Chanakya—perhaps the best made TV serial to ever grace Indian television—where Indradutt, the Prime Minister of King Parvateshwar says the following about Kautilya (not verbatim) :
woh daan mein diya hua vastr pehenta hai aur bhiksha ke ann par palta hai |
Aise manushya ka kya swarth ho sakta hai?
(He wears clothes that were given to him in charity and eats food by begging. What kind of selfish motive does such a person have?)
Therein lies a clue to how you can fight/check corruption.
