Good people shall save the day

"Some months back a poor fisherman named Jaykumar came to the office of ‘Ananda Viketan’, a prestigious Tamil weekly, accompanied by his wife Rajavalli and 10 year old son Udaykumar, with the request that the editor help him in returning an amount of one lakh, which he had received as a consolation money, because his son was thought to be dead, to the govt. He said that his request had been turned down in all the govt. offices. Now that our son has returned please help us in returning it to the Govt. Our family and people of Todvai village have come to the conclusion that getting back the son is our greatest pleasure. Hence we have no claim over this money.” In today’s atmosphere, seething with corruption, the existence of such enlightened souls is the guarantee for a bright future for Bharat."

The future may not be bright as you think my brother. This stray incident may be heartening but is surely not an indication of a change in the social order called 'greed' which finally leads to corruption.
