Its sad to hear that boy of age 15 set himself fire, becuase he coudnt cope with the reality that his both parent are HIV positive. By reading this news on bbc.co.uk, i felt sick and sad thinking is really India moving forward? in terms of economic yes but in terms society thinking I guess we still living in 18th century.

As people living with HIV and AIDS, They have rights that must be honored by society and governments. As citizens of our country and the world, we have responsibilities that accompany those rights. These rights and responsibilities are rooted in a strong sense of social justice, individual and collective responsibility, and the principles of effective public health.
