Corruption in Tourism Sector

Corruption is a issue in itself which has to be educated to one and all about what is corruption and how we contribute to it unwittingly. An article in Hindu, about tourists entering the restricted Bandipur forest area from Kerala, intrigued me to think, if the tourists who went on these trips with the tour operators realize that they are concluding with the lawbreakers. Excitement and curiosity gets the better of us. In order to cross restricted forest zones corruption should have been involved. It is very sad to see that citizens who cry in other cases against bribery and corruption forget about it when venturing into such illegal tours. In this case, they are not only a party to corruption but also against wildlife protection as they are disturbing the natural fauna by hindering the animals from moving freely in their habitat to the waterhole. To eradicate corruption first every citizen should understand what is corruption and use their better judgement and always stay on the right side of the law.
