He finds the relation and concludes that bribe is only one form of corruption, arising from a deformed state of mind. With deep disdain for corruption in all forms, he develops strong ethical values and convictions. But ……

He dreams of a successful corporate career. He is convinced that the private sector rewards performance and is devoid of corrupt practices. But ……………
