I believe the India Note is sort of silly, but is
agood move in the right direction, it gives publicity and make world
knowedge of the problem.
The reason why corruption exist is because everything
in life is a business in a way. A church is a business, it needs money, an ONG
or NGO is a business it needs business to survive. A person works for money, the
truth is they really do not care where the money comes from and close to the
majority or employees believe they deserve more money.
I had many employees, and i would guess less than 3
percent did not steal from me, most stole time. I always laugh, as having
internet in my office would give them a huge reason to steal time. I normally
send my newsletters so it arrives in the USA about 10 in the morning, after
people arrive to work, clean their desk and are starting to find ways of not
I was a real estate agent, I put many advertisements
in the Sunday Newspaper, then on money morning from about 9 till 12 I would
receive about 90 percent of the calls on the Sunday Advertisements, then about
the other 10 percent through the week, I would say, I got less than one half

I am going to SELL these photos to the newspaper,
and become famous, and I can make more MONEY, then there is checks and balances.
Every government official in the USA is afraid a reporter will film them and
they will never work again or their children will know.
India is not against corruption, there are a few,
and they will become the majority in a long time. People will PAY to get a job
to be corrupt, this is the why corruption exist, the people do not hate
corruption, instead they love it, they want to be the person taking the money,
not giving it.
I have thought for years about creating a web page
that allows persons post photos and helps them to expose a person. This is a
very dangerous thing to tell, this person is taking money.
NOTE: I see Transparency International as an ONG-
NGO that is a business.
