The whole nation is talking about corruption and nepotism. It’s time now to understand the actual meaning of the term. We say it is very much prevalent in Political Parties and that’s good research. We need to ask ourselves a very personal and honest question, Have we not practiced or were not a party  to nepotism in our own petty life? " Many a time, we have avoided standing in a queue and got our job
done by using money, power and contacts. Haven’t we greased palms, given money to get things done? Haven’t we recommended the names of our near and dear ones for a job or a post? Haven’t those of usin positions given preference to our relatives? Haven't we flattered our seniors for a hike and promotion? Haven’t we bribed cops and rode free after breaking traffic rules? Haven't we used contacts to get our children admitted to good educational institutes? It's high time we do justice to ourselves.
