5.7 million known cases of infection in 2005. Overtaking South South Africa, now we stand at the top of the (un)glory peak. Rejoice !
So much for the talk of a stronger India in the 21st century ha!?
The 'land of Kamasutra' ,where ironically the topic of sex is still a taboo, has now became the land of HIV AIDS. And the most puzzling part is no one really talks about this in India, still !?
So the question now is why did the awareness campaign launched almost a decade back failed to take off? We need to realize that AIDS is such kinda pandemic that its toll cannot be reversed in short term and thus we need to have at least a 10 yr plan.
