Freedom From Corruption Campaign in Pondicherry Community College, 12th Feb 2010

Cruelty of Corruption is experienced by everyone in the present day. It is a vicious cycle that sometimes derails a family, like in the case of a mother who commited suicide, as her daughter was refused education loan, because of their inability to pay the demanded bribe. Many are adamant to stoop down and pay the ransom, and so openly protest and by joining anti-corruption organizations like us take a stand against Corruption.
On February 2010, 180 NSS students of Pondicherry Community College, expressed their support to our movement against corruption by taking a pledge to neither accept nor give bribe   . President of 5th Pillar Mr. Vijay Anand, gave a presentation on the title "Freedom from Corruption", highlighting the field activities of our organization and also mentioned about our student chapter in educational institutions called SAC (Students Against Corruption). They had many queries about the exact measures adopted by our organization to combat a practical situation like traffic constable asking for bribe inspite of all the relevant documents, and so on. Mr. Anand explained the exact way to tackle the situation and also refered to the inclusion of the Motor Vehicles Act in the website of 5th Pillar that gives a detailed penalty or fee structure for each infarction. After the presentation many students approached Mr. Anand and disclosed their personal encounters with bribery. Youth of today are very passionate about the social evils and are always willing to voice their indignation and are not afraid to confront the perpetrators, which is a great motivation for us to create awareness among the coming generations.

RTI Training for History Makers from Mumbai, 7th Feb 2010

Journalism records history, as journalists are the first to report the facts of events. The stake of anti-corruption movement largely depends on the stand taken by journalists. Publicizing the social evil of corruption, its affects on humanity, remedial measures to be adopted like resorting to RTI petition and so on, will encourage the citizens to stand up against corruption.
25 Journalists from 18 leading media have joined to form a Club- Journalists Against Corruption, in Bulgaria on 6th April 2004. Their main task is to provoke intolerance in society against different form of corrupt practices and to change indifferent attitude of citizens by using the influence of media. These kind of collaborative efforts from all fronts will one day eventually eradicate corruption, and aleviate the living standards of all of us.
Journalism students of Wilson College in Mumbai who were visiting Chennai for an educational tour, were very interested in the 5th Pillar concept of fighting Corruption. RTI training sessions were conducted to all the 64 visiting students, in two batches at Chennai 5th Pillar office on7th Feb 2010. The students were very eager to learn the procedures to follow in filing the petition.

7th Day of Honest Politics Course on 13th February 2010

Under the title of Democratic Principles and Status Quo of Political System, the electoral process and all the rules and regulations followed by the state electoral commission was explained by the instructor. A systematic description of the functionality of the commission and the term of the chief election commissioner was detailed. This commission was formed exclusively to give complete autonomy to the officer in charge and create an immunity from the governing political parties. To maintain the commissions integrity the term of the chief election commissioner is only for 2 years and can be renewed to a maximum of 3 terms only. Roles and duties of the electoral personell and the proper code of conduct for conducting and declaring a fair election was described. Inspite of all these regulations we still encounter corruption and malpractice in the form of paying money to secure votes. As long as corruption is a standard norm it is very hard to weed out corrupt practices to have a fair election process. Step by step procedure and rules followed to conduct a fair election was revealed to give a clear insight of the entire electoral process.
In the afternoon session, the instructor spoke about other social issues like corruption, that affects democracy. The Vohra Report submitted by the Union Home Secretary N.M.Vohra on October 1993, gave a detailed description of corruption in politics, and some of the findings were highly explosive of highest officials, bureaucrats and politicians. According to the study conducted by Transparency International in 2005, Kerala is the least corrupt state, and Bihar is the most corrupt state in India. Himachal Pradesh followed by Gujarat are ranked second and third after Kerala. The study was carried across eleven public services and Kerala was found to be least corrupt in all the services, whereas Gujarat was highly corrupted than other states in education, Judiciary and land administration. In July 2008, Washington Post reported than nearly one fourth of the 540 parliament members faced criminal charges, including human trafficking, embezzlement, rape and even murder. In 2002 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections candidates with criminal records won majority of seats.
Corruption prevails in all the departments and has affected the citizens, some very drastically. In government hospitals, corruption leads to issue of duplicate medicines, unable to avail diagnostic procedures, and so on. The poor who cannot afford private health care come to government hospitals and it is very pathetic to demand money from the poor. It shows the desperation of the so called educated elite in some cases. Most sad part of all this is sometimes the ward nurses and other labourers working in the hospitals extort money from other poor patients who come there. 
Corruption in the Police and Judiciary  department completely derails the faith in democracy. To rectify this there is vigilance and anti-corruption cell in every department, but the paradox is that there is corruption in these cells also.
The evening session conducted by Mr. James, mainly focused on the political opportunities for youth in India. The main highlight of the course is to give a clear understanding of good governance and to encourage the participants to play an active role in remodelling the current political layout. Young students have joined together and contested as a party or independently. It is very encouraging to see students take an active role in politics.

6th Day of Honest Politics Course on 6th February 2010

Casteism in Politics is a crucial power play in today's political system. The instructor of the morning session gave a detailed account of the nature in which the caste system influences the voters. Political parties evoke caste sentiments, and field candidates in a constituency based on the caste of majority of voters. Different caste groups join in coalition to form new groups in political arena, like the forward and backward caste to get a majority in the elections. In 1990's so many political parties rose to power in the state level by proclaiming their alliance to the backward caste, muslims and dalits. Instead of denouncing the categorization and discrimination based on caste, the political parties openly acknowledged the castes and proclaimed allegiance to certain castes based on voter banks.
In the afternoon session, the formation of Panchayats and their role in democracy was discussed. According to Jawaharlal Nehru, a democracy will be successful only when the foundation is strong, in the sense that there should be good governance begining from the local bodies. To bring this to effect, every village with a population of more than 500 should form a panchayat as per the Madras Village Panchayats Act of 1950. The Tamilnadu Panchayats Act,1958 paved way to the formation of 12,600 panchayats in all over Tamil Nadu. Different local governing bodies that come under the umbrella of the Panchayat, and role of office bearers was explained in depth. In the Urban level the functions of Corporation and Municipalities was discussed. Source of income of the Panchayat, Municipality and Corporation and the respective responsibilities gave a clear cut idea of the functionings of these governmental institutions. A detailed understanding of our political system is essential to understand the obligations of the respective government offices, which will help every citizen to duly ask for his rights. Lack of this knowledge, usually comes to the advantage of the corrupt officers, to hassle the citizens with excuses in the name of regulations.
Mr. James in the evening session spoke about Electoral Managers. We have an independent electoral system in the name of Election Commission of India, that was established on 25th January 1950 under Article 324 of Constitution of India. Areas were electoral enforcement system needs to be tightened are, income tax regulations and regulation of parties. Role of Civil society organizations as guardians of constitution and laws was explained. Process of election process, conduct and role of civil society organizations in the electoral process was analyzed and discussed in depth.

Judge's View About Corruption in India

Ministry of Law and Justice is a prominent ministry of India that comprises of the three departments namely, Department of Legal Affairs, Legislative Department and Department of Justice. Judges who uphold the law are very instrumental in directing the nation's growth, and hence the stand they take against corruption is critical.
Mrs. Tamarai selvi, a former Judge who is currently a Law College professor in Coimbatore, created a stir in the media when she strongly condemned Corruption by saying that government officers, who accept bribe, can quit their jobs and go begging in the streets. She is well known for her uprightness, and so when she voiced her strong disdain against corruption, she was applauded for her straightforwardness.
She is an ardent supporter of 5th Pillar, and during her son's wedding reception in Coimbatore, on 14th February 2010, 5th Pillar volunteer Meganathan, set up a table at the wedding hall and distributed the Zero Rupee Notes to all the guests and dignitaries who attended the reception. Law College students who attended the reception were very interested to hear about the field activities and RTI training sessions conducted by our organization. As future lawyers they were interested to learn the practical ways to tackle the issue of corruption, and welcomed us to conduct an RTI training session in their college. It is a great success as we were able to convince at least more than 25 future lawyers to fight against corruption. Once every citizen  becomes aware of the crippling effect of corruption, it would be easier to tackle it.

Corruption and money go hand in hand. Givers initiate the takers. The common philosophy of the takers are that they are accepting the gifts offered to them and the philosophy of the givers are that they are appreciating for the services received. First initiative to eradicate this social evil is to make people understand that corruption destroys the social network. Greed is induced, and the word "enough" in the vocabulary is forgotten.
An awareness campaign was conducted at CMC Ltd, Chennai on 10th February 2010 between 3:30- 5 pm. Rick Westhead, journalist of Canadian daily newspaper called Toronto Star, accompanied Mr. Vijay Anand, the President of 5th Pillar to witness the awareness campaign. This was very interesting, as we were addressing a different spectre of people. IT professionals are well paid and their view of corruption was very different. Vijay Anand spoke about the RTI Act and its implementation in different scenarios for solving practical problems encountered in our daily life, like obtaining a ration card, electricity connection, getting a birth certificate etc,. Zero Rupee Notes were distributed to all the participants to encourage them to use them if they are asked for a bribe. The back of the Note has the contact information of our office so that the public can reach us if ever they are stopped for bribe. It is very sad when some of the IT professionals justify themselves for paying the bribe to get their work done immediately as they are pressed for time. They are unaware that they are nurturing evil by bribing. By explaining the vicious cycle that they are initiating by bribing we hope to contain this from burgeoning. Vijay Anand explained about how paying the bribe, as the so called "Extra Fee", affects the life's of innocent citizens. The Journalist who was an active observer of the entire program, then interviewed some of the professionals to get their perspectives in detail.

Presentation of 5th Pillar at TedX Conference

“A stitch in time saves nine”, is a famous phrase that comes to mind every time we visit the colleges and schools for awareness campaign. As we believe that the students are future leaders and directors of the socio-political layout of our country, we reach out to them to educate them about the existing social evil, Corruption. Interesting stories about their first encounter with this social evil, when they tried to get their driver's license and passport are discussed during the awareness campaign. During these discussions, they come to know how each of them paid different fee to obtain the same license. Students are frustrated and angry, but are unaware of how to deal with this issue, and when they learn about 5th Pillar's, action plan, they are very much encouraged to take an active role in our organization.
On 9th February 2010, we were invited for conducting an RTI awareness campaign, at a convention in Vellammal Engineering College, that was attended by various colleges and corporate companies. The President of 5th Pillar Mr. Vijay Anand, gave a power-point presentation and spoke about the RTI Act and its implementation in various scenarios. He addressed 350- 400 students in the auditorium, and explained in detail about the Act and its functioning, in real life scenarios, and how to file an RTI petition, by asking the relevant questions for the concerned issue. The Zero Rupee Note was distributed to all the participants and everyone took a pledge to, neither accept nor give bribe.
The Zero Rupee Note is an important tool to fight against Corruption. The Note with the picture of Mahatma Gandhi, signifies a second freedom struggle, this time not against the outsiders but the inside violators.

Witnessing Corruption From the Womb

Before a baby enters this world it witnesses corruption from the womb, were the support staff and higher officials demand money for scan, blood test and other services. Once he or she is born,it witnesses the art of bribing by paying to obtain the birth certificate, community certificate, inclusion of the name in the ration card, school admission and so on. This is how corruption has embedded in our society and has changed the entire framework of our society. Corruption is a vicious cycle, which will cease to exist only if the givers stop as well as the takers.
To leave no stone unturned, 5th Pillar followed the path of folklore in street theatre, and conducted an awareness campaign at a street corner in hope of reaching the public. On Feb 10th, between 7 to 8 pm, Vijay Anand, President of 5th Pillar and Mr. Subramanian, Director of Operations at 5th Pillar, accompanied by journalist of leading newspaper in Canada, Toronto Star, conducted an awareness campaign to all the residents of the Kakkan Colony in Besant Nagar, Chennai. Volunteers of 5th Pillar distributed the Zero Rupee Note to the local residents to create an awareness about the RTI Act, and explained in detail about our role in the anti-corruption movement. Vijay Anand spoke to the public about the RTI Act and also encouraged the public to approach our organization when faced by difficult situation. He explained about the basic right to entitlement, and the amount to be paid as penalty for infarctions. The residents had numerous stories to share with the organizers about the practical situations they had encountered. The Journalist interviewed a few residents to gain their input about the social evil they encounter in their daily life.

RTI Training in Tirupattur on 7th February, 2010

The recent article on Jan 29th,2010 in Hindustan Times, New Delhi, is very encouraging for reluctant people to adopt to RTI to solve their problems. The article mentions, a man using the petition to find his cellphone that was pick-pocketed. The police who were reluctant to file an FIR for the lost phone had no choice but to recover the phone in a month with the unique IMEI and SIN number of the phone. Stories like this published in the papers are encouraging the citizens to use the Act and we have been facilitating them by conducting RTI training sesssins on a regular basis.
On 7th February, 2010 an awarness campaign and RTI training session was conducted in the Government Boy's Higher Secondary School, Tiruppatur.

In the afternoon session, RTI training was conducted, were the participants were taught how to write the petition for different scenarios. The participants were very eager to share their personal encounters and the discussion was very thought provoking. The RTI training sessions are a way to armor our citizens to face the current corrupt scenario.

The 3rd day of Honest Politics course kicked off with an interesting topic about Root cause analysis of political deacy and ecosystem for political innovations. Role of money in political elections was discussed in detail. This is not a new concept for the participants as they are well aware of the sorry state of Central and State politics and the ever popular recent Madurai by-election, where the ministers paid Rs.7000 for a vote was an eye opener. Voters are always swayed by promises of free amenities like tv, clothes and what not. Unfortunately as these are distributed to the lower income groups who are the major participants of the elections the trend of politics has changed. While this is the case for the lower income group, the higher end influence the political layout by donating large sums for their favourite parties in return for favours that are illegal.

The Honest Politics course covers a wide variety of topics relevant for understanding the operational principles of Politics. Socio-economic analysis of the reasons for political decay, was the topic covered in the morning session. Influence of caste, religion, race and even family run politics was discussed. Everyone in our country is well aware of politics being family business both in the Central and State level. Movie Industry and politics have been associated and had a huge impact and turning points in the political layout. In all this commotion, average citizens blame the entire political system and shy away from taking responsibility and acting on it. People sit around coffee shops and public places and discuss about the sorry state of politics but no one would take the initiative to act on this issue and try to bring about a change. This has paved an easy route for the politicians to go unchallenged.
Role of education and quality of life in participatory democracy was a very informative topic covered in the afternoon session. The basic rights of human beings are food, shelter, clothing and education. Women in the rural areas are still deprived of quality education as they are considered a curse and are married away at a tender age.
