World's AIDS Day.

World's AIDS Day.Marked every annually in 1st December.  I got to know about this day through a student Medical Association in my uni called 'EMSA' (European Medical Student Association). Somehow I got really interested in been actively involved this year in my own little way.

(Though this is coming a little late,its been hanging in my dashboard since 31stNov.)

Just a short overview of what its about:
Its that day of the year that had been set out since 1988 to raise an awearness on HIV and show support for people living with  HIV. Usually a theme is chosen for this campaign following consultation with UNAIDS,WHO and other agencies to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS.
Since 2011 the theme for World's AIDS Day has been 'Getting to Zero: Zero new HIV infections. Zero deaths from AIDS-related illnesses. Zero discrimination.

There's  this red ribbon thats used as a default sign of support:

I especially want to write about Zero discrimination. Discrimination is said to be a bias or prejudice resulting  in denial of opportunity,or unfair treatment regarding selection,promotion,or transfer.It is practiced commonly on the grounds of factors which are irrelevant to a person's competence or suitability.

I believe that every life(human) has to respected irrespective of their age,gender or race,including an AIDS patient.

You can make a decision to support someone living with aids if you ever meet them and make it one person less to getting to Zero(in discrimination).

You can change the mind of someone who is involved in discriminating.

To every AIDS patient out there,probably you have been rejected,discriminated in one way or the other,though I can't be there to physically show support and be a part of your love experience in this new journey but accept your present health state and face the future with a mind of writing a beautiful script of your life. I believe it very possible :), it  very possible. Only decide to rise above; I know its easier said than done,but take it one day at a time.

FOCUS N or P

I’m sure you are wondering by now, what does focus N or P mean?
Yeah,its worth the think. I’m sure you are familiar with the way a camera works, at least to some extent. The android phone/iPhone users can own this complement. You’ld often realize that some pictures don’t come out ‘fine’ or clear because whoever was behind the phone did not focus it right. Having seen the picture, you be like ‘omg this picture is blurry’. How many have friends who take blurry pictures (winks.)- this is by the way.(I do that sometimes). Youl’d realize that one or two taps on your android phone makes the image much clearer.
For my photographer folks, a gentle turn of that Nickon D3300’s focus ring  and or zoom ring would give a perfect picture. 
Just like a camera can produce both positive and negative images, so also our minds, based on our focus.

In Numbers 13:30-31, Caleb and Joshua happen to bring back a good report as compared to the report of the other representatives that were told to go spy the…

FOOD…..GOOD FOOD

:) I’ve not written in about a month now because I needed to focus on some other things.
Lately, my attention has been drawn to food. I mean, gooooooood food. The kind of food whose appearance gives some Jesus Joy. You know what I mean? Sighting them a lot makes one absolutely crave for them. While some of them take only a little while to get prepared, some of them take quite some time. However, if you ever take your time to prepare them, you’d be so glad you did. These are the kind of food that cost quite some amount (to pay for) in a good restaurant.
