Corruption: a weapon of mass destruction


While integrity is the most powerful trait to win over, corruption is the most potent weapon to conquer. The British used corruption as a weapon to divide our country (India) of many princely states living in harmony and prosperity, and left corruption as an enemy difficult to be conquered now, after seven decades of independence. It is only gaining traction, getting more and more deeply entrenched, and spreading its tentacles in all spheres of our life. Corruption is more powerful than any weapon invented ever to destroy your enemy, slowly, using their own people and resources and with minimum bloodshed and cost. It is like a creeping guerrilla warfare damaging the target slowly but steadily and unobtrusively. It is an invisible weapon that once triggered goes on auto pilot with no fuel to keep it running. It generates its own fuel and spreads wherever it can reach without being noticed. In fact our enemies use it effectively to slowly destroy our unity. It is used surreptitiously as a powerful bait on the lower rungs of the security establishment to gain information, access, plant destructive devices and walk away with no foot prints left, that makes it difficult to trace the origin to be used as an evidence. Corruption if used ingeniously and patiently enables even a Lilliput to conquer an Oliver. Such is the power of destruction of this unobtrusive weapon. It is part of a larger game plan of intrigue where the fence eats the crop. It has been used in ancient times (Puranas) to corrupt the mind of enemy’s men to make them wage war (non-cooperation) against their own master and in turn achieving the objective. The same weapon is now destroying our society though without an identifiable hand behind it. Should we allow this self- destruction to work towards our own end? Corruption neither happens by accident or nor is catalysed by oversight, but is an organised business of intelligent minds. The partners are many: policy makers, politicians, bureaucracy, oversight and law enforcement agencies, lower rung officials, mafia, service providers and motivated section of citizens. Corruption can happen only if a conducive environment exists. The job of these partners in crime is to create that environment, that is self-serving and at the cost of ordinary citizens and progress of the country. Those who indulge in corruption and be partners to it, are to be treated as national criminals, not petty thiefs. The job of well-meaning citizens is to break that conducive environment in which corruption and the corrupt thrive. Corruption is the most debilitating bane of our society. It is a despicable phenomenon deeply entrenched in our culture. Corruption eats into all progressive initiatives and actions of the minority of well-meaning individuals and institutions in our society. Corruption is all pervading; not limited to a few spheres/levels of economic activity, segments of society, geographies or even hierarchical levels. It surfaces wherever and whenever there is an opportunity for illegitimate benefits (rent seeking) in whatever form it takes. The benefits transferred manifest in many forms: financial, material, tangible, intangible, immediate, delayed, open, masked, direct, indirect, minor, major, obtrusive and subtle, indulged in by functionaries (officials) across levels: higher, middle and lower; cutting across business, services, emergency care, not excluding crematoria, hospitals, police, judiciary, education, municipal services and any. It is rooted in a despicable mind-set to make illegitimate short term gains by short cuts by both parties to the transaction. ...

Doing Business in India-Knowing the Rules and Learning the R


Business environment of today has roots in historical evolution. Present ecosystem is a function of reluctantly embraced oriental collectivism and underlying desire for individualism of the accomplished driven by contextual convenience. While collectivism / socialism are pretexts, masked individualism is the latent reality. This perennial conflict is the root cause for the perceived poor enabling environment, while one refers to India. Response to situations are not necessarily guided by what the rule book says, but by what people have engineered and learnt over time, on, how situations are handled to realise goals. These in turn are determined by people’s belief as to how informal (real) systems work. Informal systems are truly innovative to interpret rules to circumvent, go beyond the rule book / system. Innovative systems that evolved are not documented but learnt from observation, practice, experience, word of mouth sharing; and over time, become the defacto way to do, even when formal rules exist. While many provisions are exceptions, repeated use of the provision makes exceptions the accepted rule. No management program can help one gain mastery of this ways of working in India nor would one want these on record. The India experience cannot be defined or articulated, but have to be heard like a story, internalised and experienced to know what it is and its value. To understand this country and its ways one has to spend time in India, immerse one-self into it, be open to learn (the creativities) and realise its hidden value. Despite all the negative ratings on various counts, no global corporation has ever left India, no International Financial institution will miss an opportunity to lend to India; no economy will ignore India. India is the most resilient and has survived many economic turbulences, even acknowledged by the developed world of the west. This paper that goes into some details on the what, the why and the how of Indian ways, should guide prospective businesses gain some visibility into what one should expect and how one should traverse his/her path while dealing with / in India. ...

Corruption: A Weapon of Mass Destruction and Recipe for Soci


While integrity is the most powerful individual trait to be compromised and won over, corruption is the most potent weapon to conquer the susceptible. Susceptibility reflects mental weakness, low moral / ethical standard, institutional and systemic weakness to apprehend and punish the corrupt, greed, over-smartness leading to tendency for misadventure for gain and above all society’s values and attitudes. The British used corruption as a weapon to divide and rule India a country of several princely states living in harmony and prosperity. Corruption grew into an enemy difficult to be conquered, even after seven decades of independence, gaining traction, getting deeply entrenched and spreading its tentacles in all spheres of life. Corruption has dented a social ecosystem of honesty, trust, commitment, courage, enterprise and achievement orientation, and fostered one of mistrust, low morals and ethics, suspicion, intrigue, greed, disenchantment, fear, lack of enterprise, low productivity, ill feelings and hatred. Corruption is more powerful than any weapon invented ever to destroy (your enemy), slowly and unobtrusively, using their own people and resources, with minimum bloodshed and cost. It is akin to a creeping guerrilla warfare damaging the target slowly but steadily and invisibly. It is a silent weapon that once triggered goes auto pilot and self-propelling with no exogenous fuel to energise it. It generates its own fuel and spreads wherever it can reach, without being noticed. It is a virus difficult to control and contain. Our enemies use it effectively to slowly destroy our unity, our economy, society, productivity by directing our energy into unproductive / destructive terrain. It is even used surreptitiously as a powerful bait on the lower rungs of the security establishment to gain information, access, plant destructive devices and walk away with no foot prints left, making it difficult to trace the source. Corruption, if used ingeniously and patiently as a strategy, enables even a Lilliput to conquer a Giant. Such is the power of destruction of this unobtrusive weapon. It is used as part of a larger game plan of intrigue where the fence eats the crop. It has been used in ancient times (Puranas) to corrupt the mind of enemy’s men to make them wage war (non-cooperation) against their own master and in turn achieving the veiled objective of the originator. A classic case of demonstration of this is the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi by her own security guard. Same weapon is now destroying our society though without an identifiable hand behind it. Should we allow this self- destructive force to work towards our own end? ...........

know your enemy - bridging knowledge and practice of managem


This book attempts to bridge the void between knowledge of management from a formal management program and real world demands on practice of management. It exposes limitations to application of management concepts in isolation as well as the accelerating obsolescence of management theories. The intent is not to belittle value from management education, but to sensitise management students and practitioners on nurturing an open mind, on continuous learning and apply their knowledge with contextual sensitivity. The book is aimed at practising managers across levels, aspiring managers, entrepreneurs and anyone to introduce them to the practice of management and its finer nuances they might encounter in their day to day life. Every human being is a manager irrespective of his/her social /economic status and the profession he/she is in. The simple, but not so obvious messages here are considered essential to practice what is learnt in formal schools, though many of these would have been put to use unconsciously in our daily grind. Our educational system fails to address critical elements essential to effectively put into practice the formal knowledge from an undergraduate /graduate program. Students of formal programs are handicapped by having no one to ask, not knowing what to ask, even feeling diffident to ask for fear of ridicule; until they are confronted with situations the like of which are illustrated here. The syndrome of holding back genuine simple questions by students and admonishing the one raising the question by the teacher hasn’t died down in our social milieu and educational system. Regressive educational system and medieval mind-set of the teaching community offer space for simple books like this, to bridge the gap between knowledge and its application. Real life situations are visualised only when one is confronted with or when they are presented in a no holds barred manner, not gift wrapped. When people try to apply knowledge from formal education innocently, gaps between the tool and its effective application surface, as surprises. Formal education cannot address all possible variants in real life situation for which a tool (set of tools) is expected to be applied. Formal education largely addresses theory, principles, concepts and their mechanistic application in near ideal situations. Real life situations are never ideal, but are open systems notorious for complexity, cacophony, unpredictability and inconsistency. Questions such as what mix of tools to use, where, when, how, how much, how to tweak the elements, when not to use despite theory suggesting to the contrary, how to provide for situations that the theory doesn’t cater for and intelligent use of knowledge, are rarely addressed. Such gaps in our education are generally filled in by a mentor or a coach, on the job, during apprenticeship, who interprets situations for the mentee, in the context of the theory. He also extends the comfort and confidence to carve a judicious just-in-time amalgam of concepts, apply them, interpret the outcome and continuously tweak to arrive at desired results. This free-wheeling dialogue is what this book attempts to achieve, to give the reader a sense of what to expect and how to handle the same. The role of this book essentially is to be a coach or mentor; not a lecturer on theory. This is not a replacement for text books. Instead, it serves the purpose of supplementary or a casual reading for someone excited about the topic. I hope inquisitive readers will find some value, help supplement the content and educate the author by sharing their own experiences and views. ...
