Indeed, corruption in India is not good.  It is fairly bad and is one that brings out the worst in international condemnation.  Yet, one cannot simply think that India is the only nation battling corruption.

The new head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, is currently being investigated for her role in corruption activities while working in the French government.  She is being investigated for aiding and abetting a fraud scheme while in governmental power.  She is succeeding Dominque Strauss- Kahn, who was removed from the same position after his arrest in New York on charges of sexual assault.  Both incidents have given French politics a "black eye."  Transparency International, a public affairs group, has indicated that British government is "complacent" about political corruption.  America has also dealt with its share of corruption in government.  The Jack Abramoff scandal implicated many political leaders and reflected how corruption is a part of liberal democracy in America.  I don't think that India has cornered the market on corruption in government.  It seems to be a universal thing.
