   -------------------------------- 
   Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS. He 
was 
   infected with AIDS virus from a blood transfusion during a heart 
   surgery in 1983. From world over, he received letters from his 
fans, one 
   of which conveyed  
   
   
   Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad 
   disease 
   
   To this Arthur Ashe replied 
   
   The world over -- 
   
   5 crore children start playing tennis, 
   
   50 lakh learn to play tennis, 
   
   5 lakh learn professional tennis, 
   
   50,000 come to the circuit, 
   
   5000 reach the Grand Slam, 
   
   50 reach Wimbledon, 
   
   4 to semi final, 
   
   2 to the finals, 
   
   When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD Why me 
   
   And today in pain I should not be asking GOD Why me 
   
   Happiness keeps u Sweet, 
   
   Trials keep u Strong, 
   
   Sorrow keeps u Human , 
   
   Failure Keeps u Humble, 
   
   Success keeps u Glowing, 
   
   But only God Keeps u Going.

   Hey, Thats inspiring, I guess.. 
   
   Arthur Ashe passed away having raised awareness of AIDS to a level 
where 
   paranoia was no longer the overriding emotion. 
   
   That is what makes him so unique and important.
