Is there any alternate way of decent earnings for career politicians besides corruption?
A political career in India means huge investments. The only way these funds can be recovered is by extracting bribes. The more complex the system, the easier it is to extort money from business people and ordinary folks. No wonder the elected bodies like the parliament and state assemblies gleefully keep adding pages after pages to existing laws. The politicians also keep the bureaucracy henchmen in good humour... they really need not give pay raises to employees, just need to add a few clauses to some obscure rules and the government employees will do the rest.
It is no surprise at all that scams are crawling out of woodworks all the time. Political careers need to be made remunerative in a transparent way. For all the buffoonery that politicians engage in, they do supply democracy to the nation...that cannot be denied. That is a service the nations needs to compensate them for generously with a large heart.
