Kolkatta is said to be a city of dreams for many who live here and for many who migrate to this place.This place is said to have provided employement to outsiders who come here in search of job.Ramesh was like any other unemployed Indian youth who came to Kolkatta few years ago in search of a job.He was equally skillfull and talented.He used to do jobs such as painting,construction,tailoring,driving and all.As seasons change ,he would change his business.He had friends and one can relate them to group of spoiled brats.They loved enjoying life together.They had unprotected sex with commercial sex workers in the city.Ramesh was one amongst them.At first ,Ramesh refused to do such things.At such time,he would think of his beautiful wife and his 2 pretty kids who live in Rajasthan.But,due to his friends insistance,he had unprotected sex with a sex worker in the Red light area in Kolkatta.Little he knew that it would affect his life to such an extent.He was unaware of this so called "Killer" virus.Later on when he visited his village,he had sex with his wife.Few days hence,his body became vulnerable to infections and started showing symptoms such as fever,night sweating,diarhoea .Few days later ,he consulted a doctor who revealed a shock to him.The doctor that he was infected with the HIV virus.Only then he realized the mistakes that he did.He had sex with the sex worker without any protection which cost his life.Few days later his body became feeble and skinny and eventually one day he died.Today,his wife Shama is infected with the same deadly virus.She may die soon,but there is no one to take care of her two childrens.No one in the village was willing to adopt her children and take care of them.Even her in-laws ignored her and her kids.
There may be many people like Ramesh who are ignorant about this disease.This post is make such people aware of this disease.One should take care that he/she uses all sort of protection while indulging in any intimate activities with any stranger.Shama was an innocent Indian woman just like any other woman.Little she knew about this disease and what will be the future of her kids after her????.
The AIDS(Aquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome) is one the major disease in todays world.Its mortality rate is very high infact 100 %.The virus is capable of mutating fast and can replicate several times faster than any other virus.There is no cure to this disease,its a sure killer.It has been learned that by 2050 more than one fourth of the world population will consist of HIV patients.The majority of AIDS patients are from India,South Africa and many other African Nation.
This disease can be prevented,but there is no cure .
Prevention is better than Cure.
