I recently read AIDS Sutra: Untold Stories from India… Its basically a collection of short essays by some of the best indian authors on AIDS… Salman Rushdie, Kiran Desai, Vikram Seth, Siddhartha Deb, William Dalrymple, Amit Chaudhuri, Sunil Gangopadhyay, Nikita Lalwani, Sonia Faleiro, Aman Sethi, Mukul Kesavan, Jaspreet Singh,Shobhaa De, Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi, Nalini Jones, and CS Lakshmi

The book presents loads of information… opens up our eyes to an amazing extent… Each essay or a story whatever u want to call it deals with one aspect of AIDS… one group of people which are prone… be it the gransgenders of Mumbai or the sex workers of AP… or be the foster home for HIV+ children (that was the most heart breaking one) or the homosexuals…

Each episode is brilliantly researched and written… I would suggest the book to all and one…

It opened a whole world for me do I have done some some work with AIDS awareness before….
