A Brief History of Scams ...

I thought to create a brief history of recent scams in our polity. This is as much to inform the public ... well, let me revise that ...

This is more a 'reminder' for myself than an informative piece for the public. You see, now a days scams are coming and going at a furious pace.

So, here goes (in no particular order):
  1. The 2G scam.
  2. The Adarsh housing scam.
  3. The Commonwealth Games loot.
  4. Barkha Dutt and the DMK story.
  5. LIC and PSU bank officers story.

To revisit some of the 'older' scams but still from memory ...

Raju of Satyam fame ... but that will become an unending tale ... might back to the other 'golden age' of scams in India ... during the time of the great Narasimha Rao's primeministership ... from the telecom scam of Sukh Ram to Urea scam and sugar scam of Kalpanath Rai fame ... and oh, how can one forget the famous fodder scam of the one and only Lalu Yadav.

Then you have the coffin scam of the Kargil skirmish times to the Harshad Mehta scam to all the shenanigans of the Ambanis ...

Oh well, I will wanted to mention the 'top five' scams just so I can revisit this blog a bit later and check on the status of those scams.
