Disgruntled Memoirs Of Flaunted Flaws


Corruption is not corrupting our society.

The acceptance of corruption as an integral part of our day to day life is.

The following is an attempt in portraying the vicious circle of accepting corruption.

The beginning is the end you can’t deny. 



Disgruntled memoirs

Of flaunted flaws

In desperate deeds

With maligned thoughts

Inside fraudulent prayers

Corrupting humane core

Through worthless accolades

Citing selfish desires

Loaded with sins

Painted with blood

Of innocent conscience

Wounded fatally

Holding on shamelessly; and

Faking contentment with

Unaccounted biases in

Dealing with sincerity

Of  unprovoked honesty

Lost credibility of faith

Penetrates the building strands

Leaving behind some new

Disgruntled memoirs

Of flaunted flaws.

    How is it that we so readily accept the unacceptable? How do we say, “No More!” to that which should not have existed to start with? We just DO IT. We disobey, refuse to act, to buy, to support, to remain silent. We step up, speak out, take action. Great write about something for which we all are responsible. hugs, pat

    ….that’s a loud voice of society. I really appreciate your views, and we are a part of it. We buy things, and we play our roles in aggravating the situation. WE know this, WE know that. WE have eyes to see, WE have eyes to judge. WE have even eyes to CLOSE. How are WE dealing this ? WE know, yet WE are in the FLOW.

    Should I laugh or should I cry ? No!
    ……but I’m changing my thoughts, my actions, my values. Change starts with a pinch of salt, but we need to stand up first, to accept the bitter taste of what we are being served.

    It is like a picture from today’s society, where people will converse like this :


    One person says, “for how long will you ignore ?”
    another one comes up with measuring, “how long is too long ?”
    Third one would add, “I have bills to pay and my toddler is crying for life. I know where to go.”

    That’s it. Life ends, Philosophies end. Materialistic feet moves, over-stressed body finds a queue to corrupt their hands in chaotic economy. A generation passes.
    Where are WE heading to ?

    Remarkably honest voice you have, Prashant. Thank you for this.

      Thank you Pawan for so honestly and passionately comeing forward with your heart on this issue. I started this one with something else on mind – something personal…but after finishing it I realized how close was it to this scar on the society.

    A voice very strongly spoken by you! BUt I do agree with Pawan too!

    A long way to go before it gets eradicated from our society and minds..for this every being has to change.

      who says about eradicating – it has to be atleast controlled in some manner first ! IT IS CHAOS right now !!

    “Lost credibility of faith”…you bet!!!
    I experienced a very high level of corruption recently…..when i had to run around different clerks of the secretariat to get my degree verified. It was hell! They kept me running from one desk to another…and finally the clerk said something about “money for buying sweets”….I had to pay those buffoons for something that was my right!!! I didn’t want to be a part of it but no one would listen to my plea…and i needed my certificate soon to present at an interview.
    Corruption runs in the veins of our country now unfortunately…. 😦
    After 5 days of running around for an hour’s work….i ended up paying them….and felt humiliated about it.
    Thanks a million for writing this! Two thumbs up!!!

      Greed may not be the only reason for the living corruption. Something somewhere is seriously wrong with our thinking and approach towards the system that we have taken shelter beneath the umbrella of shamelessness and no-conscience to be a part of the rat race.
      Thanks Doc !

    agreed. its nonchalance to corruption – causing more harm than corruption itself.

    & they say “Corruption is like a ball of snow, once it’s set a rolling it must increase.”
    I say: as long as there are honest voices as such, the ball is destined to break…
    Peace & Light
