Corruption — fight, or the Story of one failed costumerBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/corruption-fight-or-the-story-of-one-failed-costumer
It happens that a person is attracted to the beautiful from childhood, and the opportunity to realize himself appears only in adulthood. And then a person is ready to go ahead to the cherished goal, sparing no effort, money and, sometimes, despising common sense. Beautifully said, isn't it? And now to the point.
It seems that the Dalai Lama XIV said that not getting what you want is sometimes luck. But a resident of the Chechen village of Tsa-Vedeno, Israil Biysultanov, was hardly interested in quotes from the spiritual leader of Buddhists. His interests were in a completely different plane — Israel gravitated to high art.
Since cultural objects in his native village were represented only by the House of Culture, this temple of the Muses was the coveted place for a horseman with the heart of an artist. Biysultanov's finest hour struck on the day when an ad about an open vacancy for a costume designer appeared on the doors of the rural cultural center.
But can you stop a real man on the way to the goal with such trifles? After haggling hoarsely with the deputy director, Biysultanov convinced the responsible person that 40 thousand rubles could well replace a diploma and several years of experience and received the go-ahead for employment.
On March 11, the new costumer brought the sum necessary for solving formal issues to Yunusov and eagerly began to fulfill his creative duties. Unfortunately, the realities turned out to be more severe than the accommodating deputy director. First of all, it should be noted that apart from a few moth-spent national costumes and a dusty false beard, there was nothing in the costume room.
This has already left a small residue on the soul of Biysultanov. But when, after five days of working in a new position, the man talked to the accountant and found out that his salary was only 11 thousand rubles, the crystal castles built in his head collapsed with a clang.
Annoyed by such a modest reward, Israel went to the police and wrote a statement on the bribe taker Yunusov. In the end, even an ordinary dresser from a rural house of culture has to fight corruption evil! As expected, now both actors of this operetta story are under investigation — one for giving a bribe, and the other for receiving it. Here is such an uncomplicated, but instructive plot, taken straight from the cultural life of the Chechen hinterland.
