Penned by a recently-retired senior bureaucrat who is well versed in the administrative machinery of the Government of India and who possesses the ease and flair of a natural writer, these anecdotes of governmental corruption are at times so humourous that one forgets the gravity of the problem under discussion, while at other moments the magnitude of the problem is laid bare.

Book Description Academic Foundation, 2003. Softcover. Condition: New. Times of Indiayword/Times" Title="Times">Times of India poll on 7th May, 2002 showed that Corruption is perceived to be the biggest problem facing the Country today - "the number one problem." "Fifty-five years of our existence as an independent nation and 53 years of working of the Constitution, have resulted in one common experience of all Indian citizens. They cannot go to any public Organization or office today and get the services which they are supposed to get without either paying bribe or bringing influence by way of recommendations or references from VIPs," emphasizes N. Vittal - a man who has observed, analyzed and above all, boldly crusaded against corruption, calling it "by far the biggest challenge to the growth of our Society and nation." His current outlook on corruption in India is that of a self-determined, sensitive patriot who by virtue of his position as the Central Vigilance Commissioner (CVC) had the opportunity of being able to get a panoramic view of the whole thing - only to conclude, that the problem of corruption CAN BE TACKLED. Through this slim, easy-to-read book, he shares with us his thoughts, ideas, and experiences on this critical subject and his vision of "a corruption-free India." Humorous and witty at places, throwing up hard facts in-between, the twelve chapters comprising this Book `openly` discuss the serious aspects of corruption and the various interrelated issues. Readers would find very convincing, the simple and straight-forward arguments posed by the well informed author. Using examples from real life, quoting words of WISDOM (shlokas), making references to great people and great books, N. Vittal has done every bit to illustrate corruption in India as `the roadblock` to national prosperity. But his task does not end here. Vittal`s Writing is soaked in optimism. His worthwhile suggestions keep coming all the way and the final chapter virtually declares his proposed "strategy" to combat corruption most effectively. The book is meant to attract anybody and everybody who feels strongly about corruption and doesn`t mind reading a few pages written by someone as appropriate as Mr. N. Vittal. According to Mr. Vittal, fighting corruption is like fighting a war: War is too dangerous a matter to be left to the generals. Fighting corruption is also an important matter not to be left only to agencies like the Central Vigilance Commissioner or the Central Bureau of Investigation. Mr. Vittal, therefore, emphatically points out that it is necessary to sensitize the entire Population of the country and bring together every citizen who wants to fight corruption.
