2 sides of the same coin

On one front you have initiatives in the hinterland that educate people about the dreaded HIV and how to play safe:

And on the other front, you have gimmicky graffiti like the one below:

I checked out
the website.

It says: "Guru Siyag has proved in a number of cases that the practical application of yoga can indeed heal and even cure chronic ailments such as arthritis and diabetes, and terminal diseases such as cancer and HIV/AIDS"


When you belong to a country where people are easily influenced by the media they are exposed to, one can't help but wonder how dangerously the interpretations can vary.

I found the above graffiti on flickr. But, I've personally come across graffiti on 3-wheelers here that proclaim "Jesus can cure AIDS".
