Respect for rupee

It is a matter of concern when the corruption figures are shown in lakhs of crores. Some newspaper claim that the whole of India can be wiped of poverty with the money that is stored in foreign banks.
What has caused the downfall? People say morality of the people has fallen and they resort to incorrect and illegal activities to achieve things. People hoard perishables and sell them off at convenient times just to earn extra money. People take admission to colleges on the basis of money.
Demand is more than supply. And money is expected to fill it.
The situation now has changed so bad that shopkeepers sell items below MRP. What is it that makes them so confident? Where do they have an extra source of income?
Many times artificial demand is created. When a minister says 100 flats be alloted, their chamchas often keep 70% and 30% are only legally sold as per minister's order. For the other 70% false legal papers, bogus claims etc. are entertained. This is the seed for corruption.
The police have to be extremely strong in such things. They cannot remain quiet. I remember in Howrah station we were prevented taking a bag of rice from the Howrah station to Ballygunge gardens. Because in those days only ration rice was permitted.
Reverting back to old systems is futile. And is not permitted by laws of heat. Entropy cannot be reversed. Yes, Stephen Hawking, the broken cup on the floor cannot join back and fly up to the table. No, it cannot. But I wonder why a human does not pick up the cup, glue it and keep it back.
