My grandfather was a civil engineer with the municipal authorities in Simla and there was a contract to be awarded to construct a road and a helipad. A contractor came with a Rs 30,000 bribe so that he can get the contract from my grandfather. My grandfather resigned from the job. When his supervisor asked him why he wanted to resign, he said, â€œ Today I may not need the money, but tomorrow a need may arise enticing me to accept it. â€¦. If many many years later, I can tell my grandson tales about how I didnâ€™t bow down to corruption, my life is worth it.â€
