Almost a month now. Around that time a ring tone was released by BBC world service trust just to spread AIDS awareness. This ring tone is cappella. I came to know about this word for the first time. Before you google it I’ll give you the meaning of that word. It means a song in which there is no instrument involved. It is just vocal and human voice. Don’t expect dogs to sing.
Since it’s release it has been downloaded thousands of time. I wonder how many of those downloads are just for show off. In other words just to keep the ring tone as a part of fun and use it for some laughter. I doubt that all will set that as a ring tone which is for a purpose and that is to spread AIDS awareness.
I’ve kept it as my default ring tone. At first I hesitated a bit. But then it became normal. It also shows the mentality of Indian peoples. There is very less talk about sexual or sex related issues. I can understand. But don’t hesitate it when things lead to death or someones life can be in trouble. I don’t hesitate in such case. Being shameless is a good thing and I realized this now.
The first week of use was at our main house when I went for Ganesh Chaturthi. My cousins either took it the fun way or just left the chatting area. I didn’t say anything. I just wanted to see how people react. Then in bus it was more fun. Whenever my cell rang all attention was towards me. Many times it happened that I was surrounded by girls and I get this call. I kept a habit of not to take the call till the ring tone reaches the word “Condom”. For the young ones especially college fellows it was a thing to laugh at.
It is up to you now to decide. For me it is a good medium to tell others not to hesitate saying condom and asking for condom. Certainly there will be a day when I’ll require to buy condom. I hope not to hesitate that time. If you are curious about the ring tone and want to download and listen then follow the links below. It is available free.
