Two HIV infected children's desire to attend school has divided Kottiyoor, a small town in Kerala.
When Akshara and Ananthu, students of second and first standard respectively, arrived at the school on Wednesday, armed with a government directive to admit them, they had faced stiff resistance from the parents of other children.
Chief Minister A K Antony had then directed the concerned authorities to admit the two to the S N Lower Primary School.
