An Essay competition for college students on Rampant Corruption in India

N.S.Venkataman, Trustee, Nandini Voice For The Deprived, writes: Dear Sir,

Nandini Voice For The Deprived, a Chennai-based NGO, has organized
All India Essay Competition for college students on


In recent times, several international rating agencies have termed India as one of the most corrupt countries in the world.

Sixty years after Independence, corruption appears to have taken deep root in the country and has pervaded all fields of activity. As the country is debating about the extent of corruption, nobody is disputing that corruption prevails everywhere not only in the government departments but also in private establishments and even in medical and educational institutions.

A country like India aspiring to reach the top in the comity of nations should not allow this situation to continue.

Since the youth constitutes a large segment of the national population, corruption can be defeated if the younger generation takes up the cause. In order to prompt college students to think on the subject and provide their views and suggestions, Nandini Voice For The Deprived is organizing this competition on the eve of the forthcoming Independence Day.

College students from all over India can participate in the essay competition.

The essay can be written either in Tamil or in English in a maximum of 2,000 words.

The essay should reach the following address on or before 15th July 2008.

Five cash prizes would be awarded to the best of entries.
