Sex education in India: Need of the hour
Three million people in India are suffering from AIDS and most of them are in the age group of 20-30 years. It’s high time that the schools shed their so-called shyness and started educating youngsters about sex.
ONE OF the much-debated topics in India is whether sex education is necessary in India. But considering the lack of awareness among the youngsters, particularly adolescents in the age group of 16 to 19, and their involvement in sex in a rather primitive way, considering it as an act without any responsibility, has spoiled the individuals concerned, with early pregnancies, abortions, sexually transmitted diseases, AIDS, mental tensions, stress, torture, desertion from their families, loss of social respect and in the end resulting in utter failure in their studies and becoming a wayward in life.

One of the most acute problems that India is facing or rather struggling with is that India has as many as three million cases of patients suffering from AIDS or have tested positive for HIV and out of them a considerable number of cases are in the age group of 20 to 30 years. This startling fact not only burdens us with the problem of redeeming them from the maladies of AIDS, but also entails us with the additional problem of preventing the spread of this dreaded disease to the other sections of the society. NALCO is doing its yeoman’s service in this regard.

Under the circumstances mentioned above, since the prevention is better than cure, we have to launch our programmes in the right directions, such as disseminating knowledge about sex and the dreaded disease AIDS, about its social impact etc.
Another area that we need to concentrate on is premarital sex. Though premarital sex is largely considered a personal affair of the concerned individual, but it is our duty to make them realise that premarital sex is not simply an act, but it is an act coupled with responsibility.

To drive home all the points mentioned above, it is better to introduce sex education in India, a country that is the second largest in terms of population in the world and which has already a significant number of people infected with AIDS.
