Connect With Me...... People need people to talk to; they need people they can open their hearts to; people need people to hold hands and feel strong; they need people who can hold them and let them cry. I am not talking about a romanticized partner or a bollywoodised friend. I am not even talking about families or counsellors. I am just talking about people. Just anyone. We really do...

A fairly young guy diagnosed with HIV and HepB (now undetected) a while ago afraid to go for interviews in private sectors (Hospitality Sector to be more precise) after graduating. Are there any chances of getting employed in India, if they found out about my health issues? How about government sector? or would it be better for me to be self-employed?

I am Indian. Having travelled to most parts of India, I finally made Mumbai my home. Why Mumbai, of all places? Well, every Indian knows how fast paced and advanced this metropolis is. Only in Mumbai, women get the certain amount of freedom that they don’t get anywhere else in India. I say “certain” amount of freedom and not the hundred percent...

HIV and Relationship <3

HIV and Relationship When I am in a relationship, I give it my 100%, totally investing in it. But if it doesn’t work, nothing else will, no matter how hard you try. You cannot move ahead with something when there is no hope or try to fix the crack when there are no amends. We were probably not meant to be together. When you have to go away from someone...

I Am ME

I have battled rejection and betrayal
That doesn't stop me from falling in love again 

I have handled depression, violence and suicide
Now, no demon can ever defeat me

I have known loneliness and sadness
Still I find happiness in my solitude

I have been hated, shunned, ostracised
But still my heart is full of love and above all, understanding 

I can be very forgiving

I Am ME
