"Corruption is endemic in our society. It is sad and shameful but unfortunately we are the ones to blame," said Saupin's Community Service Organization of Chandigarh and Mohali while staging a street play against corruption in the Sector 19 market.
Promoting awareness about corruption on the occasion of Anti-Corruption Day which was observed internationally on December 9, students and volunteers of SCSO projected how we, the common people, help perpetuate a corrupt system.
A study done in 2008 by Transparency International reported that about 40 per cent of Indians had a first-hand experience of paying bribes or using a contact to get a job in public office.
SCSO held that the solutions are with us. "We have to stop taking pride in violating rules and should realize that the first step towards a corruption free society begin with us," a member said.
