The news from Mississippi of an HIV-positive baby being 'cured' has once again started discussions around the plausibility of a breakthrough. Dr. Satyajit Rath discusses with Newsclick the reasons which are possibly behind what is termed as 'functionally cured.' He suggests that treating infection early on when the baby is exposed to it is almost like prevention. But since there is no accurate way of knowing when an adult is exposed to HIV, can the approach used in the baby's case be of any significance to the adult community infected with HIV?

By definition, a revolution is a collective process, not a one-man endeavour. While the social and political legacy of Hugo Chávez is remarkable, the Bolivarian Revolution has been intrinsically tied to him as the leader. With Chávez's death, the Boliviarian Revolution faces a fundamental test.

Lawrence Liang from the Alternative Law Forum discusses with NewsClick the tragic loss of Aaron Swartz. Liang underlines Aaron was a victim of a system in which privatisation of knowledge is the norm and its transgression as an act of resistance, as an act of self exploration has always been met by harsh punishment. Aaron was actively involved and committed to the idea of free knowledge. He was working out ways of democratising access to information, to technology which has incredible consequences for science, for knowledge as such. Liang sees Aaron's act of downloading 4 million articles from JSTOR, intending to make them public, as a stupendous act of generosity. Aaron's death is linked to the war against freedom of information that the US government has launched.
