Indian Idols

The entire nation must be very grateful to Sachin Tendulkar and Amitabh Bachhan, not for being the greats that they are, but for increasing the level of medical awareness in the country. That too, not by being ambassadors of medical awareness campaigns, but by being unfortunate to suffer from ailments themselves. While Sachin introduced the nation to “Tennis Elbow”, the Big B has increased “Colitis” awareness exponentially. While wishing Sachin’s elbow and Amitabh’s colon a very long and healthy future, on this World AIDS Day, I wonder if the best thing that could happen to the AIDS awareness campaign in the country, is for a celebrity to contract the disease…

you never know... they might already have it... but as the society rules says... never ever disclose it... or you'll be out of the society... :| (that's the motto of celebs...)

moreover, there are harldy few who can be even think of being near to the gods you mentioned ;)
