Our Voice And Yours ...


Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little. -- Edmund Burke

Today is World AIDS day. It's being marked with events taking note of the millions who've died from the disease and highlighting campaigns to control it. About 40 million people worldwide are infected with HIV, the virus that causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome, or AIDS. Some three million are expected to die of AIDS this year. In India, some 70 HIV-infected women stepped forward during a rally in Golaghat, a town in eastern Assam state, to acknowledge that they were infected and that they should not be shunned.

 India’s Prime Minister urged youth leaders to lead by example and lead from the front. Secondly he asked them to inform their friends and empower them to make safe choices and Act locally to create a global impact! Third, he asked them to promise to uphold the dignity of every person living with HIV in our country by love, affection, and social support.This week; New England is holding a series of events highlighting this issue. IHO is hosting the 2005 AIDS in India conference and a function is beign held in giving away the ‘Putting Health on the Map Award’.

 Education is the key to all these efforts and that is also very evident in our top story for this fortnight. Dilip K Datta, a Math Professor from Rhode Island talks to us about his new book ‘Indian Inspiration and Western Karma” and the fascinating story behind it. We also feature Sulochana Govardhan, who talks to us about growing up in a illustrious musical family.

 AAINA holds its 4th Annual night with Steven A. Baddour, State Senator, First Essex District who will be introducing key note Speaker Tom Reilly, Massachusetts Attorney General . Other interesting events to check out are the enterprising TYE forum geared for young adults.

 We welcome your feedback, suggestions, comments and wishes as we strive to bring the best of the community to you.

 Enjoy the beginning of the holiday season!
