We've often heard of HIV-positive people being ostracised. But in a refreshing change, people in a village in rural Tamil Nadu's Kodangipatti village have elected Eswari who is HIV-positive to represent them in the local panchayat. In two years, Eswari has provided the villagers with many basic amenities they were deprived of for years.
