My Kerala Experience....... Two women called Mini....

Recently I was in a workshop along with Bobby in Kerala.. we were doing a self assesment.... My experience with two women on two different days...touched my heart.

Both are called Mini a very common name in Kerala.... One woman is a local leader in her late thirties and the other one is in her late twenties and a mother of two...

During the self assesment process for Mini who is a leader HIV was a distant problem which doesn't affect her directly....

But we also realised… Continue

My experience....

Being born and brought up in a traditional South Indian Christian home, for me sex was taboo and an alternate sexual orientation was something which I could never comprehend. However during the knowledge fair in Chiang Mai I came in close contact with people from different orientation and for the first time in my life I sincerely opened my eyes and heart to my friends who are made in God's own image as we believe in Christain faith, but of different orinetation. The meeting opened my eyes and… Continue

"Its not ordinary dust, its a dust of assignment and responsibilities," says Irang after a SALT visit

{ I met Irangbui Zeliangrong from Jalukie, Peren, Nagaland during an ACP learning event. The event was over on 9th May 2009 but the impact it has had is mindblowing. While in Kohima an ACP team has come up, several ACP newcomers have taken it up further. Irang took to ACP like a fish to water. Inspite of connectivity issues, he made an effort to join Ning and continued to write to me to get an update on what was happening. He sent me this piece. Enjoy! }

Irang's enthusiasm… Continue

Homage to God of Pop!

Dear fellow humans,

It is still very hard to accept that the miraculous musician,the marvellous magician to whose tune the entire world danced,the Martian like boneless mortal,messiah of millions,the God of Pop -our own "Mai ka Laal Jaikisan"is no more with us.

Millions were sent into state of religious ecstasy("Haal")and were also soothed by just a word from him,a glimpse,a gesture ,a posture which mesmerized many(at the concert at Andheri Sports Complex,Mumbai in 1996… Continue

Monarch of Music is no more!

I grew up listening to the rendition of the great numbers

(like great religious ecstatic discourses/"Haals" of sufi tradition)

by the greatest performer and entertainer of all times.

The eternal music the 'Anhad naad' generated by the Monarch of Music

will be cherished by us and the generations to come. May God grant

peace to his soul as that was denied to him in this land of lesser mortals!

The legend is no more and it is a humongous lacuna which just… Continue

chance for learning

This is my true testimony:...;-))

I was a little bit ‘shocked’ when I found on schedule paper that I was one of the facilitator for tomorrow (Tuesday, after lunch session) together with Gaston. Yes I saw the schedule, but truly I never saw the facilitator list. Yes I used to be a facilitator on some workshop, training and also ACP in Indonesia. But,…. This is international level. This is the first time for me. I really know and realize very much about the lack of my English. I was… Continue

Chiang Mai - 1st day

Just like usual, the meeting was starting by explored hopes, concern and expectations. Mine are:


 Always has a chance to learn, it’s personal. I believed that learning is a must in our whole life. And it fits with SALT. Learn has an important place in the SALT Process.

 Community recognized their strengths and confident to use those. This is my hope to communities I will visited later on. I believed every community has strength. They just did not realize. And then… Continue

"NGOs will come and go but HIV & the Community is here to stay”, says Dr Joyce after her first brush with ACP and then what happened…

[I met this elegant, graceful lady at an ACP learning event in Dimapur last month- Dr Joyce Angami. She is a medical doctor by profession and has vast experience in the field of HIV. Here she shares her experience in the first SALT visit.]

The team went on a SALT visit to Molvom (known as the pineapple Village), which is about 45 minutes drive from Dimapur, Northeast India. It was a hot day but the surroundings were really clean and fresh. The whole community waited for the planned… Continue

my own changement after a Visit SALT

Ce qui est étonnant et impressionnant avec le meeting que nous vivons cette semaine, s'est le sentiment d'être libre et avoir l'opportunité et l'envie de pouvoir exprimer et partager des choses jamais exprimées en public ou en groupe et d'en prendre conscience.

Pour la première fois de ma vie, lors d'une visite SALT après l'Espace P, j'ai pris vraiment conscience, au plus profond de mon être, de mes comportements jusqu'à présent en matière de VIH-SIDA dans ma propre vie et des… Continue

Acknowledgement and recognition: HIV is our problem!

Dear friends,

We all have something to share, we all have something to learn. The most valuable knowledge is not somewhere in books on shelves but it is in our heads. It is in the heads of millions of communities who respond, every day, to the issue of HIV.

We invite all of you to participate in this first global ‘knowledge asset’ building on Ning: the collection of our joint knowledge on the ten practices of AIDS Competence, based on our experiences.

We propose… Continue

well almost the same

Sorry for cross posting but this is also a pressing issue, well almost the same as HIV. at the bottom of the well we see OUR very own behavior. There are a lot of issues on HIV and most of them boil down to behavior some need for behavior modification, easier said than done. I know, im on the process myself. now.... climate change ....irresponsible throwing of trash, irresponsible use of stry packages. blah, blah blah...... Lets see the parallel and maybe well learn to manage HIV the same way… Continue
