While the idea of the zero rupee note is commendable, it looks in the wrong direction. India's pervasive corruption is more a function of the self serving sluggishness of the ruling class - the recently exposed Ruchika Girhotra case and my own experience indicate that checks and balances have collapsed and coalesced into one corrupt predatory ruling class. Very little difference between the judiciary, the administration, the legislature and the press. They all know that bad, perverse, dysfunctional behaviour is the capital with which to earn money and power. The old "Pinch the child and then rock the cradle" idea. My fear is despite the fantastic growth figures, India is fast deteriorating into an administrative nightmare and a bit of a basket case. Transparancy and accountability are the mantras that will create the necessary paradigm shift. The RTI ACT 2005 as a piece of legislation is brilliant. But count on the bureaucrats to racketeer on this too. Even as we speak, Dr Manmohan Singh’s Office, “Daredevil” Pratibha Patil’s Rashtrapathi Bhavan, Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah, State Information Commissioner CD Arha are all in a criminal conspiracy to deny me justice. The Andhra Pradesh High Court in the inimitable manner of the Indian judiciary has misbehaved egregiously.
