For India - January 26th, 2016
________________________
I am so proud to be Indian -
To submerge myself in a vast ocean of history,
In deep, rich, mesmerizing waters
That twinkle like the eyes of village children
And smell of marigolds and sandalwood
And of the spice that coats my mother’s fingers.

I am so proud to be Indian -
To press my palms to the warm, soft earth:
Land as dark and lovely as the woman who sings
Like a nightingale into vermilion sunsets
Until her voice has melted into the chorus of a billion,
A billion fireflies glowing like embers that cannot be tamed.

I am so proud to be Indian -
To feel the caress of gentle, light winds
That dance with their bells to the beat of my heart;
To inhale the music and magic and majesty
That swirl before my eyes like the white skirts of a dervish,
To exhale in sweet relief as I memorize the beauty
Of this, of me, of you, of us.

“One of the patients who touched me the most is an 18 months old boy who was suffering from pneumonia and severe malnutrition.

He was very weak when he was admitted, but improved significantly during his 10 days stay with us. You know, it’s not good for small children to stay that long in a hospital. But this little boy recovered remarkably, and towards the end of his stay he was so much better, always giving me a big smile when I would come, grabbing my hand, wanting to engage.

But yesterday he came back for his follow up appointment, and he worried me. He lost a lot of weight in a week – that’s not good for a such a young child. I could see right away that he was not well: he didn’t recognize me anymore, he was sad, he was like another person. I wanted to hospitalize him again to keep an eye on him, but we couldn’t. They live in town, so at least they don’t have to travel far to come to us. They didn’t come back today, so he must be doing OK. I hope so.

The reality of pneumonia can be very scary and dangerous. Each year, it takes the lives of nearly one million kids. There’s a vaccine to prevent it, but it’s too expensive for many countries to afford. That’s why we need #Pfizer and #GSK to drop the price to $5/child for all developing countries and humanitarian organizations. #AskPharma http://afairshot.org

Ilka Tanya Payán (1943-1996) was an actress from the Dominican Republic, known for her roles in popular telenovelas or Hollywood movies. Later in life, however, she became a devoted HIV/AIDS activist, after she contracted the virus herself.

She founded HOLA, The Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors, and also became an attorney practising immigration law in the United States. She discovered she was HIV-positive in 1986, and since began to raise awareness of the disease and break stereotypes and stigmas surrounding it. In 1993 she was a featured speaker at the United Nations panel for World Aids Day. During the last year of her life she worked for the Gay Men’s Health Crisis charity, in an effort to educate the public about prevention of the condition.
