VYAPAM – the deaths, an Epidemic par Epi-medic
India had always been
the epicentre of scams ever since it gained independence. All the hard work of
our freedom fighters to gain independence after more than two centuries of
foreign rule seemed to have been put to shame by the power hungry politicians.

The way our
politicians, cutting across party lines went on rampage looting the common man
and the national exchequer would have surprised even the most hard-core
criminals. When it came to scams, our leaders somehow forgot all political
differences and have always joined hands to ensure that the common man is
squeezed to the last drop of his sweat.

We have been so used to
be drained dry of our pockets that financial scams rarely seem to affect us anymore.
But then the plot seems to be getting murkier and dirtier as we the common man
is being complacent.

The latest to hit the
headlines is the scam involving the Madhya Pradesh Professional
Examination Board, referred more commonly in Hindi as Madhya Pradesh Vyavsayik
Pareeksha Mandal.

VYAPAM the acronym
of the name in Hindi, the scam involves highest level of manipulation in the
selection process for government jobs in the state by putting up proxy
examinees on the basis of which the candidates are examined and recruited to
these jobs across the state.

What is beyond
comprehension is the way, one after the other,the people linked in various
capacities with the scam, dying, or rather getting knocked off their lives.
With the state government and the probe agencies passing the buck and trying to
pass on these deaths as quite natural, the mystery keeps deepening with every
death reported.

A scam involving
officials, businessmen and politicians of the highest order, it has claimed the
lives of not only candidates but even the dummy aspirants and even also those
probing the scam. The first light on this scam was thrown was in 2013 with
reports that imposters and proxy candidates were being used for the recruitment
exams to medical colleges, government teachers and doctors by the politicians,
bureaucrats and others in exchange of bribes and kickbacks being paid by those
seeking admission.

Over the last two years
since the scam erupted, which has more than 2500 accused of which more than
2000 having been arrested, more than 40 people have lost their lives so far.
What is intriguing is that the government and the police claiming that over 900
of the accused are missing. It is difficult to fathom for a prudent mind, how
so many people can just disappear into thin air.

The scam fanning and
spreading its wings to unimaginable proportions has seen deceit in all forms
being enacted.

Be it impersonation
wherein all details in the in the admit card of the original candidate is kept
intact with just the photograph of the imposter affixed on it. The scam is with
the connivance of the examination board officials who make sure that the
original photograph of the candidate is replaced back after the examination.

The ergonomics of how a
train moves is applied so scientifically here in the engine and bogie system of
cheat and deceit. The person who is fixed by people on the board acts as the
engine being seated strategically between the two other candidates aspiring for
a seat. With examiners having been already bribed to fix the seating
arrangement, the engine helps the two bogies to copy from his paper.

The bravest of the
cheaters even adopt the modus operandi of advising the chosen candidates to
leave their answer sheets totally blank, with them being made to fill in the
answers in the OMR booklet according to the high percentage marks already given
to them randomly.

46 lives so far and
still counting, it is already becoming no less than an epidemic incomprehensible
and par any epi-medic.

As a common man
watching in wonder, we can just hope this serial killer is leashed by the
Supreme Court intervention and investigation by the CBI.
It's only fair to share...
