Just finished giving tuitions. I'm so damn tired. Got only about 3 hours of sleep last night. Sniff sniff... Today I've talked about AIDS to my students. That's why I wanted to make a post out of it. To point out that I've realised that most of them didn't know about the ways AIDS is transferred from one person to another and they were actually laughing when I was talking about it.
I'm not criticising them, nor are they to be blamed for finding AIDS funny. Their behaviour just reflects the social environment in which they were brought up. We live in a society (this does not only apply to Mauritius) which has been conditioned not to take ailments seriously. We consider disasters, catastrophes, diseases as being so far out of reach of our peaceful, calm life. But of course, we love to hear tales of someone else's problems but we do not consider getting involved, doing something to eradicate evils.
I don't know why I am talking about this right now at D-3 to my exams nor do I feel that I myself am involved in something constructive about the wiping out of social evils. In a sense I am criticising myself; my lack of passion, my indifference to things that touch me but which I refuse to let under my skin. And here I was criticising NGOs about their lack of organisation. At least they are up to something and I wish them the bast of luck.
We indeed need forces that can put words into actions, ideas into deeds, thoughts into results. This is a post for Godspeed. I guess Godspeed will just have to wait.
So long. Don't comment if you don't feel like or have nothing to say. I'll understand. It's one of my rare posts that is not good-humoured and I apologise.
Well here's something jovial:
Her name is Bubbles.
So long people!
