Gujarat orphanage expels two HIV-positive boys


It’s sad to hear that two HIV-positive boy’s age between sex and nine have been forced to leave an orphanage in Gujarat. By reading this news I felt sick, disgust and sad. This news put in me into deep thinking. I asked question myself is India really moving forward. Is our society is so conservative? In terms of economic yes we are making progress moving forward but in terms society thinking I guess we are still living in 17th century.

People living with HIV and AIDS, enjoys equal rights that must be honored by society and governments. We can not discriminate any one by their health, colour or caste religion. It’s shame. We as citizen should at least try to understand that people living with, or affected by, HIV enjoy the same respect and rights as others and are entitled to unconditional support and acceptance within their faith communities, and in wider society, at local, national and international levels. Wake Up.

Just a Reminder:

India has now overtaken South Africa as the country with the largest number of cases.

 

 

 

AHMEDABAD (Reuters) – Two HIV-positive boys have been forced to leave an orphanage in Gujarat after staff said they posed an unacceptable risk to the safety of other children, an official said on Friday.

“I am sad and sorry for them. Children play, eat and fight we cannot take chances, others can get infected,” V. Vachonidhi, secretary of an orphanage run by Arya Samaj, told Reuters.

The two boys, aged six and nine, are now with relatives after leaving the home in the town Kutch, 450 km west of Ahmedabad, where they had lived for four years with about 150 other children.

Staff could not tell Reuters what had happened to their parents or how they had become infected with the HIV virus.

  1. “India has now overtaken South Africa as the country with the largest number of cases.”

    Sad News.

    Everytime we hear: “Citizens should wake up… its the job of the common man”… it’s plain laughable.

    The common man has elected the govt., paid taxes, entrusted the powerful Babu’s to specialize and do the job with its army of govt. servants and clerks. This is clearly not happening.

    Walk into any Primary Health Care Center across India. 9 out of 10 times your experience will be: Rude, Inefficient, Poorly Managed, and even filthy. How are we going to tackle things like AIDS with this attitude. All that happens is SLOGANEERING. Where are the Results????

  2. It is a real sorry state that we are still living in medival ages. Instead of supporting these boys they have left them . This is pity.

  3. We’re still backward in our thoughts, lifestyle (though we like to ape the west without adapting the style to our needs) and behavior. Economic progress is not enough, in my opinion.

  6. This is outrageous!! Forget about all the economic boom and consumerism and the explosion in fashion and entertainment industries.. what good are all these if we dont have basic humanity.

    For God’s sake, they are just little kids. The fact that they have AIDS only means they should be supported even more – let alone thrown out like some used clothes. My blood is boiling right now and I’m too confused to even think about a rational solution. However, i have to say this: Shame on the society, which means Shame on us for letting this happen. Maybe i’l write a more intelligible comment when I have calmed down.

    very well said mate “Walk into any Primary Health Care Center across India. 9 out of 10 times your experience will be: Rude, Inefficient, Poorly Managed, and even filthy. How are we going to tackle things like AIDS with this attitude. All that happens is SLOGANEERING. Where are the Results????” Its clearly says that government has failed in terms of health policy, even recent report shows that we are far behind even from Srilanka & Bangladesh in terms of providing working health policy to our people.
