AIDS!! A name feared socially, scientifically and in every other all(e)y.
You know the saying “Always Be Positive”. This is the one thing that no one would want to be positive with.
AIDS is a problem. Normally, people are screwed if they have a problem. But, in this case, people have a problem because they were screwed.
I heard about AIDS at a very early stage in my life(do not get any wrong ideas, read further). When I was kid, there were a lot of commercials floating around, creating awareness about it. The one that I remember shows
Shabana Azmi hugging a little girl on a hospital bed. But, the idea wasn’t clear as I was too young to understand it all. The idea was gradually cleared with age which led to different perceptions of it at every stage. They are as follows:
->When I first saw the commercial, I thought, OK, she is a little girl. Her face looks pale, but other than that, she is not crying in pain, doesn’t seem to have a running nose or cough and she is hugged by a movie actress on TV. Cool, this is a win win situation. I’d rather have AIDS than cough and cold.
->After a while, after I got a little more knowledge about what AIDS is? Another thought came to my mind. Was that little girl, a victim of a paedophile with AIDS?
Later, I came to know that the commercial was about the little girl getting it from her mother before she was conceived.
->There was still one more thought, before I was 100% clear about it. In all the AIDS commercials, they always said, “The main cause is DOING IT with multiple people, so be loyal to your partner”. That made me think, if this is the main cause, then how the hell does polygamy still prevail among different cultures around the world? Why did it not cease to exist?
Why did the Kings and Queens not get AIDS.
Such a long train of thoughts lead by a wrong notion, that the HIV virus is created in the human body, when a person DOES IT with multiple people.
Then, I came to know a fact that AIDS is passed from one horny generation to another like a legacy.
Now that you know about AIDS, always BE POSITIVE in life and I mean it in a good way. 😉
PS:- Do not waste your time in thinking, “How the hell did he end up writing about AIDS?”. My blog has a “Random Convo” section. I think about a lot of random shit, at RANDOM.
