In 2003 Satyendra Dubey an IIT graduate lost his life for speaking against corrupt officials and contractors, he was working with the National Highway Authority of India on the Golden Quadrilateral project , the pet project of the then PM AB Vajpayee. Prior to his death, he had tried to inform the high ups even the PM of India but some rotten apples in the administration leaked his name. Ultimately he was killed and his body left on the highway.
In November 2005, Manjunathan an IIM Lucknow pass out, manager with Indian Oil Corporation ( PSU) lost his life for standing up against the Oil mafia, he received death threats for ordering closure of a petrol pump selling adulterated fuel. Both brilliant guys, with middle class values of honesty and integrity instilled in them, only hope of parents who ensured good solid education would give them a head start in life. Both penalized by a system that refuses to change by rewarding the honest.
Both could have got jobs anywhere in the world but stayed back only to lose their lives while doing a job. Who is to be blamed? Is it the insensitive system that does not reward honesty, fails to protect the whistle blowers or the middle class values and ethics? What choice do the young and upright have - to withstand it all even if it means losing ones life or opt for the safe option of going abroad?
