New Delhi, August 19, 2017: In a society where HIV patients are very often forced into seclusion, a new book titled “I Am HIV-Positive, So What?” promises to raise new hopes among the silent sufferers.
The book, authored by journalist Jayanta Kalita and published by Bloomsbury, was launched on Friday at an event organised at the Press Club of India here.
“His mission was to break the stereotype that an HIV person cannot be part of society. Even after his HIV status becoming public through the media, Singh remained undaunted in the face of all odds,” Kalita said at the event.
The book speaks of the incredible journey of the HIV-positive person, who mended his failing health, overcame psychological trauma, and fought stigma and discrimination to pursue his dreams.
“He was determined to excel in his chosen field despite warnings from doctors and adverse comments from the society,” the author added. (IANS)
