BANGARMAU (UNNAO): Prem Ganj, a settlement of about 5,000 people, is living under the shadow of an unknown fear. Deep Chand (name changed), sobbing inconsolably, is an embodiment of that mortifying scare. In the past three months, 38 people from this locality of Bangarmau tehsil have been found HIV positive at screening ca ps in the past three months. The needle of suspicion is pointed towards a quack, Rajendra Yadav, who has been held.
Till a few months ago, Deep Chand was just like most men from Prem Ganj, working as a 'palledar' (loader) at the nearby grain market. But a few months ago, his body started saying 'no' to humongous sacks he would carry on his back to make a living. Continuous excruciating pain in the lower back took him to Yadav's Station Road clinic in Bangarmau, the destination for many in his neighbourhood needing ch medical help. But relief eluded him. Last month, at a camp in Prem Ganj to screen HIV cases he, along with his wife and son, tested positive. Now, he has to report to Kanpur ART Centre, 50 km away, for regular check-up and medication which is free.
几个月前，跟镇上大多数男人一样，Deep Chand 在附近一家粮食市场当装卸工。
He also has four daughters. But fearing worst, he has not made them undergo the test. "I am not fit and don't earn like before. What will happen if they, too, are tested positive? Medicine is free, but I don't have money to take six people to Kanpur. I can't even afford the cost of copies and pencils," he vents his angst.

I have all sympathies for the man, but why have four children when you cannot afford good education and living for even one. And then out of financial crisis you have to go to people like "Dr. fit". Something or the other was bound to come.

Gt has only two works. Law and order and Collect tax and spend it on ppl welfare. If Gt involved in other work like stage shows, jumla, Davos etc then this bound to happen. Listen Modi and Rahul both if you can.
