IITians participate in Freedom from Corruption campaign

President of 5th Pillar, Mr. Vijay Anand was invited for a presentation on the topic, “Freedom from Corruption”, on 11th March, 2010 by IIT Madras. His presentation on the topic included 3 short clips demonstrating the impact of corruption in our society. He instigated a series of interactive discussion on the topic in hand, Corruption. There was a question session, when students had interesting queries about the efficacy of the Zero Rupee Note in confronting corruption. Mr. Anand said that when a corrupt official is given a Zero Rupee Note instead of the demanded amount, he is startled and feels ashamed and wants to flee from the situation, and in some cases they are confused, and do not want to face any criminal charges and so they let go. Zero Rupee Note distributed by the volunteers of 5th Pillar to all the participants led to a unified proclamation of abstinence from corruption from both ends, say receiving and giving. The session was very interesting with students showing interest to follow up, by joining the organization and actively play a role by undergoing training to file RTI(Right to Information) petitions. Followed by Mr. Anand's speech, the Director of Operations of 5th Pillar, Mr. Subramani, gave an RTI awareness session.

I feel happy after see the 5th pillar's job and i can see atleast one org is there to save the country....Still it needs to popular, 90% of the citizens in india want to eliminate corruption but they dont know the way and where to go, only educated and more aggressive disprated citizens do there best to against corruption using vigilance....why dont we build a software to report all the corruption officers details public will use it to lodge complaint then vigilance can use this to catch the gov officers...I wish this org 5th pillar will make a big difference in indiaa...
