When a legendary poet and singer as Narendra Singh Negi creates such poem the poem will bring many questions before the intellectuals
One othe question is how corruption started in those most effected countries.and there is discussion in each such country as

Is Corruption in Developing and Underdeveloped Countries Due to Colonization and Westernization?

According to Osaba the definition of corruption is “ A form of antisocial behaviour by an individual or social group which confers unjust or fraudulent benefits on its preparations, is inconsistent with the established legal norms and prevailing moral ethos of the land and is likely to subvert or diminish the capacity of the legitimate authorities to provide fully for the material or spiritual well being of all members of society in a just and equivalent manner”

While doing research on poetries about Corruption, this author came to have many articles, quotations and statements from genius intellectuals and literature creators of poorer countries than rich countries that the corruption in these countries is because of colonization and race for becoming westernized by non western people. The scholars provided very well thought and analyzed theory about the causes corruption as westernization and colonization and consequences of that corruption

Katharine Slattery (1998) wrote in her article” Corruption as Consequence of Colonization- as Portrayed Achebe’s African trilogy” about corruption in African tribe.

The tribes were unified, by kinship bonds, democratic and unified allegiance to their gods. When British came they destroyed their bondage of kinship society, There was no system of king in many tribes of Nigeria. However, British selected a person (usually rich and possessed a kind of some social authority , made him ‘Chief 9unheard in Africa) through threat and bribery of richness and power. The person accepted the greedy or fleshy post . As soon as the person became ‘Cief’ and became powerful due to British’s corrupt methods, the person started becoming more greedy for wealth, authorities and power. This way corruption started and this practice poured towards lower levels.

Even the so called facilities as roads, cars, houses, modern way of living by British were offered to their selected ‘Chiefs’ or where they could get commercial benefits. This way people came to know the effects of power and corrupt methods speeded

Munyae m Mulinge and Gwen Lesetedi (1998) proved by historical references and scholar references that the role of colonization in entry and increment of corruption is due to colonization. Mlinge and Lesetedi provided the references of Robb (1992), Nabudere (1981), Tlou and Campbell (1984), Van Zwanenberg(1975), Collier and lal (1986), Richadrs 1959), Crowder (1968) and many other scholars. Mulinge and Lesetedi proved that even though the independent countries may be democratic country but centralized way of power grabbing methodologies taught by British is still there in lowest level of administration (village level) . Milinge is right as though in many countries as in India , the kingdom and kings were there but at village levels, there was a different kind of democracy.

John Hooker ( October 2008) proved by various researched references that corruption enhanced by cross-culture methodology. In Indian point of view, we may see that the corruption is more at coalition government level than single party government in centre. Coalition government is nothing but cross culture mixing.

Dare Arowolo of Adekulne University, Nigeria (2010) proved that the corruption started by colonization in Nigeria and the corruption enhanced by more inclination of Nigerian towards westernization culture that is leaving own culture is one of the causes of corruption increment. Dare provided the research references of Amponsah (2010), Asante (2007), Irele (2010), Kasongo (2010), Macgroul (2004) and many more scholars researches to prove that inclination of people towards westernization is major ingredients of learning corruption

Now there is need of more discussion on the effects of colonization and westernization and then reverse the effects from all sections of socity
