The middle classes, so far fairly silent on the episodes of corruption, have become Incite outspoken. If corruption has to be tackled effectively; a lot depends on the pressure that the people are able to bring to beacon the political class. This book takes a look at corruption from the times of Kautilya and traces its history in our times. It assesses the journey of a measure intended to fight corruption and what happens to it in the power play of politics. Which way will this go? The Lokpal movement is just the beginning. Are we, as responsible citizens, fully aware of what the struggle against corruption involves? The outcome of this struggle concerns us all. Are we doing enough to cage the monster of corruption ? Or will we let it continue to overwhelm us with its sheer size and brutal presence?
