Unique competition in Thailand

Today is World Aids Day. The theme for this year is “Increasing Impact through Transparency, Accountability, and Partnerships”. To raise awareness against the disease that claims life of many people, different programs are organized on this day. In Nepal too, rallies were taken out and different programs and interactions were organized to raise awareness against the deadly disease.


There is a program that is organized in Thailand and has been mired into controversies. In the country, a beauty pageant titled 'Miss C0nd0m' is organized. In the competition, girls blow up c0nd0m like a balloon.

According to the organizers, their main intention is to raise awareness against the disease. But, the competition has been drawing flak from different quarters for its nature. The competition is organized every year on the World Aids Day. Some 20 girls from four countries participate in the competition and battle out for the title.
