A person is corrupt when he is dishonest in his intentions and actions. So corruption means dishonesty in thinking and action. Bribery using one's official position improperly and using money or material of others without their permission are some very common forms of corruption. Political corruption means cheating in elections, buying the loyalty of members of assemblies, offering ministries to them to win their support and so on.

Bribery is the most common form of corruption in different countries and societies. We find so many people offering and giving money and things to government servants to get their work done. We see students giving money to the staff in examination halls to copy, which can be called educational corruption. It brings down the standards of education.
Selling good in black market is a serious form of corruption. Many businessmen sell those things at very high prices that are in short supply. Today we find several other forms of corruption all around.

Corruption is the result of wide gap between rich and poor in our society. Poor government servants like policemen and clerks sometimes have to take bribes to meet the expenses of their families. Government should try to improve their economic condition by increasing their salaries. Political corruption during elections, bribery and use of recommendation and connections to get jobs should be checked through strict rules.
