Keep Your Hands of all kinds of Dirty Money
Archive

Last week, I had an opportunity to hear Narendra Modi addressing a gathering of businessmen. Even as he was promoting investment in Gujarat, Modi mentioned ‘dirty money’ as being a big danger to the entire current economic recession.

Now dirty money is not the same as ‘black money’. The word dirty is used to describe money that is used by such extreme anti-social elements as terrorists and even the Mafia.

If we allow its use in the mainstream economy, there will be very bad consequences. Therefore, one of the prime objectives in today’s world is to make sure this kind of suspect finance, and the people behind it, are not supported.

Chanakya had said:

“For one calling another, who is not a thief, the punishment shall be that for a thief, also for one hiding a thief” (4.8.6).

Now this verse brings out an important aspect: Never ever support the wrong-doers. If that happens (“one calling another”), the situation will become uncontrollable. Hence, the punishment for such people will be the same as that given to the wrong-doers themselves.

But there are some simple things that you can do to avoid such a scenario:

1) DEAL WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE

In business and at work place, it’s important to choose the right organisations. Half the battle is won when we work in a good environment and with good people.

If you work with suppliers, choose the ones that have got good ethics and right practices. If you are a housewife and have a choice to buy a product from two different companies – choose the company that is trustworthy.

2) THINK LONG-TERM

This is the biggest solution to most problems. Working with the right people may not give us immediate benefits. But, in the long-term, the returns will be very high.

I know of many people who started with the right companies at small positions and salaries. Today, there are well-
respected directors.

So choose wisely the company you want to keep and the career you want to build. Do it while keeping the long-term benefits in mind.

3) OPPOSE WHAT IS WRONG

If you come to know about some wrong practices, stop it. Chanakya made it clear that keeping quite is a big crime. I know of a person who used to file a complaint for every wrong practice he noticed – whether a corrupt traffic policeman or an auto driver with an extra-fast meter.

Today he is feared by politicians and is an inspiration to young generation fighting corruption.
