  1. well, i have seen many such things happening around lots of other panchayats. Corrupt politicians from the grass root level are getting smarter and in turn public is waking up to save their interests as well.

    Where as the race to earn through corruption, enslaving people etc is automatic, sufficient support should be given ( as per our own time and influence of action) so as to make a small contribution on our part.

    Each one taking one step ahead with put this earth into such a great harmony of peaceful system that we ourselves will be amazed! ..
