London, 29 November 2010: Despite its international rise, the 2G scam has confirmed the worst suspicions about India as being among the world's most corrupt nations. With such an image, there will be questioning before long about India's credential to join the UN Security Council as a permanent member, whenever that happens. The point is simple. Would you trust your security and well-being with a corrupt, pliable police force? Even as India comes closer than ever to be recognized and accepted as a "risen" power, there are internal faultlines that pull back the country at the finishing line. Corruption is no longer an issue but a faultline with India. Unless an example is made of the 2G scandal to eradicate corruption, India will be held back from greatness. So how is the political logjam on 2G, where the Parliament shutdown looks to enter the third week, to be cleared?
