The corruption is present in several spheres of our modern society in numerable forms. As famously said by Niccolo Machiavelli that “Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely”, proclaims one of the unavoidable consequence that comes with the power is corruption. The greater is the power that comes along with an authoritative position or wealth, the greater is the rise in corruption. In public spheres, the power lies with the government bodies and big companies that drive the economy of the country. When there are changes and developments in any of these entities, the chances of corruption in public sphere rises.
Especially, when there are collaborations among the government bodies and business corporations take place which have direct implications on the lives of the common man of the country. The decisions with respect to the flow of power or money are as affected by these collaborations become the root cause of corruption in the public sphere. The presence of corruption in the system of governance or business is not specific to any one political party or industry. However, corruption stems and thrives from the secrecy, lack of transparency and fear that the power assimilates (Adams, no date).
