Corruption is of different types that have been spread in every filed like education, sports, games, politics, etc. We as a human race are so unfortunate that even our laws, the people that rule us are corrupt and dishonest to their responsibilities.

Would you like your children to be fed with expired items or mistreated in any aspect? Would you like to invest the money you make by working hard and watch it drown right before you? We all need to be loyal towards our responsibilities and strict for any type of greediness.
