�The picture that emerges is that of a great country in a state of moral decay. The immediate future seems to belong to the doomsayers rather than to cheermongers. We suffer from a fatty degeneration of conscience, and the malady seems to be not only persistent but prone to aggravation.

The tricolour fluttering all over the country is black, red and scarlet � black money, red tape and scarlet corruption.�
