Shaffi Mather: A New Way to Fight Corruption

Shaffi Mather is very angry about corruption; this made him become a lawyer. He is very big on enterprises and has been for a long time. He was part of a medical group for a terroist attack in India; t was an attack like 9/11.

He founded the access for ambulances for all people. He made this where everyone can have it and there is no charge. He is an inspiration for his country and really did help them out. He also has founded education access for all, and set up schools in small towns of India. Moksha-Yug access was the other thing he founded this; it gives the rural supply chain to get self help.

Now he is researching bribes, corruption, and lack of transparency. There are many different meanings of corruption. I know personally some teenagers use it towards drinking, or many things. Bribing is also a big thing having to do with money. I think it is interesting how he is researching all of these things and trying to help people out. He cannot really help stop corruption happening because it is a pretty big part of many different things. Shaffi is very into his job and I can tell he really likes researching things. In the video he said he had a police case againt him for intimidation but Shaffi does not seem very intimidating.

He is a very inspirational guy for his country; he really helped them out with getting no charge for ambulances since they have so much terroism over in India.
