Climate change, deforestation etc are partly been suspected as the causes but it’s the lack of awareness among the people to whom sustenance means shelter, water and food. The non-immune adults are easy prey of virulent mosquitoes and therefore, fertile to fuel a new epidemic. Aedes aegypti is the transmitter for several severe afflictions like dengue and yellow fever. Sometimes it is referred as ‘yellow fever mosquito’.
This must be the devil’s advocate. Taxation will make these sweetened beverages beyond the reach of the consumers.

Make love, not diseases.
There are more than 25 different organisms and nearly 50 disease conditions of the reproductive and urinary systems that can result from an unhealthy lovemaking. Let’s call it sex from here.
The passionate act, when sought through orifices that are not primarily meant for the whole purpose of procreation, can often turn disastrous as regards health of the partners. It opens the gateway to a whole range of pathogens from the humble louse to the mighty syphilis and the dreadful HIV.
Though classically called Venereal diseases, the World Health Organization called for a revamp in the terminology. ‘Venereal’ is derived from Venus, the Greek God of love. There was a huge stigma that this word could generate. Now, how many people can really take the fact head on that a beautiful act of divine pleasure seeking can often end up in painful lesions and discharges? Since the year 1999, according to the WHO mandate, these diseases are called sexually transmitted infections.
There’s just one life, and safe sex is the best sex.
This will be a stepping stone towards better control of the long term crippling infection of the brain.
Notification, as a government measure, has always reaped benefits in disease control.

Monday has fallen, somebody help me please
I’m leaving behind not one
But a bundle of weekend memories
I miss all the laziness and fun.
Can’t believe last two days has led me to this
I’m not sure if this is reality
Or one of those dreams nightmarish
I just wish to escape out of this city.
Oh dear Monday, let me live you easy
There’s Tuesday to Friday awaiting
Its 10 AM and I’m already dizzy
A long week ahead, I’ll start fighting.
This night is going to be a long one
I can bring the moon to light up the sky
You bring the stars ’cause it’ll be fun
When we are together, time will fly.
We will live our dreams tonight
Surrender our bodies to each other
Close your eyes while I turn off the light
No controlling instincts any further.
I’m all yours and give your all to me
We shine brighter than the full moon
We are Adam and Eve at the raging sea
Our night won’t end till tomorrow noon.
