Government control of IFCI

Apropos the post in WIC (07.12.2012) on the captioned subject, perhaps it is a sign of the times that there is palpable curiosity in the air only as regards probable changes in prospective management and business profile of IFCI, which had been left for dead some years back. However, an objective analysis of how this organization, with persistent negative net worth of many thousand crore despite best advice from consultants of world reknown, achieved a miraculous turnaround in a short period, which led to Government acquiring control on it, contrary to its dominant philosophy of disinvestment of PSUs, is hard to come by. Such analysis may be instructive to shore up various other organizations which are down in the dumps. Also, it would open many more avenues for persons watching the event starry eyed.

Corruption at all levels

Everyday we face corruption at all levels. We don't fight against it hoping that someday somebody would remove corruption from our life but when we occupy the position , we tend to indulge in corruption and forget out to remove it. Why this happens. is it possible that your forum allows people to highlight corruption prevalent in any organisation and how he / she fought against it and succeeded.
