Our greatest enemy

AFP reports that the HIV virus is widespread among Indian soldiers posted in the Northeast, and quotes a senior armyman as saying that there are "more soldiers dying to HIV-AIDS than to bullets fired by militants." Coming shortly after an earlier AFP story that revealed that India now has more HIV-positive people than any other country in the world, this is hardly a surprise. I'd written about our government's apathy to this in an earlier post, and our media seems as apathetic. Pity.
