I dont know where this picture has been clicked, but it is superb.
It was only last week in a programme on TV it was revealed that the business of over loading including bribes is Rs 10,000 crore of Rs in India per annum.
Take it for whatever it is worth.

bkc, i think the main reason for bribes is low wages in the lower rung in india. what is the excuse for higher ups for taking and giving bribes ? - Even Rahul Gandhi was admitted to Harvard due to funds ( isn't it bribe - or as the rich call it social responsibility towards education /donation ) for $11 million dollars.

giving bribes is a psychological mechanism of enticing people into something they wouldn't do normally or they do not deserve - there's more to be said on this - there are several studies on corruption which says it works - but it does not work for good for the long run for a country/society.

Bribes thus becomes a social evil.

Manju - yes, it is snow. for a minute i wished that the sun burn in its fury and burn all the snow scattered which looks like the huge piles of garbage

Very true.. corruption needs to be tackled if the country needs to develop...

nd if one looks at the following report, it shows that India is yet to take a worthwhile effort in fighting corruption as compared to the rest in the same region... even China seems to have taken corruption seriously..

My mobile camera does not give such great shots.

I believe corruption is slowing us down in thousands of little ways... including in health care and primary education.
