Well, given that those in the ruling class are all fat cats (Kim Jong Il's successor son being literally so) and rest of the population in perpetual starvation, yeah, I guess it is fairly easy to say North Korea is one of the most corrupt nations in the world. 

I am not surprised Nepal ranks high in corruption list.  Anyone can see that with their own eyes if s/he stays in Kathmandu for few weeks.  What bothers me more is the feeling of helplessness that most Nepalis have to endure when confronted by corrupt officials.  What bothers me even more is the apathy that most of Nepalis have regarding this.

We need more people like Anna Hazare, who is spearheading anti-corruption movement in India, or even like that Sherpa lady who exposed the jaw-dropping level of corruption in Tribhuvan International Airport. 

We don't need to wait for a leader to lead us out of this quagmire.  We just need people, us, to speak out when corruption, in any shape or form, rears its ugly head.  Speak out when someone asks for bribe.  Don't give in!!

Don't ever say, "Ke garney, yestai ho Nepal ko chalan."
