Suffering Africa from corrupted policies by big guns: U.S. Rules the chart..! June 26, 2008

Well.. today who is unaware of one of the most richest part of the earth which is so surmounted with “minerals” and real good mineral wealth. This nation is always among the lime light and is always a issue to be spoken about n always catches the eyes of whole world including some true dominating power of the world like USA, UK , Russia..and many more.
And this lovely nation with so much of the mineral wealth and all.. is “AFRICA”.
Today, everyone speaks about this nation, its sufferings, its problems, and every minute single happening which later turn into  the huge pandemic for this nation.
The small ignite of diseases have turned into a giant fire.. and almost the whole part of the nation is suffering from it.. including women to child and even few who have not yet not seen the world.. and is still  to open their eyes.
And just imagine, what we are doing..??? we are just talking about the problems of this nation.. rather than taking the initiatives. Even if the inititaives are  been taken they r just restricted to paper work. are they really implemented..??
For this we need to question MR. George Bush…!!
As they promise to be the most working nation for betterment of this part of the world. Well.. but actually there are very few people who are truly.. aware of the real facts. The working of the policies of these nations and there implementation. But the methodology still says, that the U.S. is a generous provider of the aids to Africa. methodology also refers that Africa is miss-managed and corrupt and hence absorb more aid. 
The facts are otherwise. Total annual U.S. aid for all of Africa is about $3 billion. About $1 billion pays for emergency food aid, of which half is for transport. About $1.5 billion is for “technical cooperation,” essentially salaries of U.S. consultants. Only about $500 million a year — less than $1 per African — finances clinics, schools, food production, roads, power, Internet connectivity, safe drinking water, sanitation, family planning and lifesaving health interventions to fight malaria, AIDS and other diseases.
If the administration were more than modestly interested in helping Africa, it could learn about the huge gains made possible by Blair’s plan to provide about $50 billion a year to Africa by 2010 — with the U.S. kicking in $15 billion to $20 billion. With that money, Africa could control killer diseases, triple food production and cut hunger, and improve transportation and communications.

The new aid would not involve guesswork or be a blank check. The administration’s claim that budget restraints prevent more spending on Africa is the most cynical of its contentions.

The president has cut taxes by more than $200 billion a year, with the wealthiest Americans the chief beneficiaries, and has raised military spending by $200 billion a year. But when $20 billion is needed to keep the poorest of the poor in Africa alive and put the continent’s economies on a path toward long-term growth, there’s no money available.

Is this what we are doing to help Africa..!! Is that the measures are been taken by some big guns like U.S and U.K..!!  There market policies and there zeal to rule the world.. have always come over there efforts. And its been clearly.. shown in there efforts and strategies. They are just taking this nation to show the world that they are so helpful to everyone. Making a image like of saint..!!  but reality is something of which very few are aware of. And i guess should everyone know.
The millions of Africans who die young and the hundreds of millions going hungry are not victims of fate. They are the consequences of U.S. policy.

This post is for the social cause to make the people aware of the facts and polcies that these  nations adopt over the suffering nation. They should be helped.. they need our help… they never asked for the luxurious life… they have just looked for a meal of their day..!! can’t we even gave them that..!!

wake up…stop molesting Africa by our strategies and policies. don’t play with the future of millions of people… who are suffering already from so much of causes.!

 

Condom vending machines and society issues.!!! June 18, 2008

CONDOM VENDING MACHINES are the hottest topic doing the rounds in the country especially among youngsters. The changing trends and the attitude to ape the western world have hyped sexual activity. India has more than five million HIV/AIDS sufferers second only to South Africa but efforts to control the disease stand against the extremely conservative traditions deep rooted in our culture.


Today, lot many youngsters indulge in sex and often led their way to unsafe sex just because, they are shy to ask for condoms from the third person or either the medical shops are way a little far from them. One, has to understand that, if a person mind is made up, he will have sex anyways, only thing we can do is to encourage “safe sex”.! The recent increase in the number of extramarital affairs and having sex with multiple partners has let to the increase in the HIV/AIDS cases only.! How can one afford to take a risk in the heat of the moment and regret it for the rest of his or her life.? It is wiser to use protection than to play the game unarmed.

The concept of condom vending machines is fairly new to India but most of the people are unaware about the machines that are also known as condom ATMs. In Chennai and Hyderabad, condom vending machines have been installed in “public toilets” and a lot of people are happy with them. Its a great idea to help people protect themselves from the HIV pandemic and unwanted pregnancies. Lot of people are taking a step to experience the sex when they r young n stepping into the the era where they r not restricted to old myths and concepts realting to sex. Tough still lot of guys feel shy to go to a medical shop n ask for a condom just because there might be some lady or women, standing on the shop or they r just simply shy and hence lands up in truly unprotected sex leding tthem to many miseries n might be some diseases. This condom vending machine save us the thread of walking up and asking for a condom and help enjoy safe sex.

The controversy swirling around condom vending machines is that their installation is likely to corrupt the youth and damage the ideals of our country. What ideals are being talked about is the question. If one were to have sex with a stranger, would it be wise to use a condom or simply go in for unprotected sex? Can our cherished ideals control thousands of individuals plunging in the act or would condom vending machines help control the HIV/AIDS crisis to an extent?

Some people think that condom vending machines will corrupt the youth and encourage them to experiment with sex on a wider scale. But in our country, everybody is doing it and nobody wants to talk about it. How sane is this attitude? Can we stop people from indulging in the act itself by promoting AIDS awareness among the masses?

“Condom vending machines should be installed in Pubs and nightclubs where a lot of youngsters end up having one-night stands. Many of  today’s generation ended up indulging in unsafe sex because the chemist stores were either shut down or were out of their way. These machines would definitely help people in a big way.”

Condom vending machines are an effort to raise HIV/AIDS awareness. They certainly do not collide with the values of our country. For those who are against the concept, think about the number of lives that might be saved with the effort.
I m truly in support for such an effective measure which can help our nation to overcome or safeguard our forth coming generation from some heavy epidimics like HIV/AIDS. And i feel one must participate too in raising the voice against the political contraversies over this issue, and the moral values for the sake of the coming generation. As we all know the time is changing and one has to change the way  to think n measure on such an important prospective. Its we who can take our nation somewhere ..as we r the one who are called n well known as the “YOUTH” of nation.! if we will lag behind them who wil come forward an talk about this issue.!!!
