Mechai Viravaidya: How Mr. Condom made Thailand a better place

| 1 Comment

I am not easily impressed by TED Talks but this one is a “must watch.” Mr Viravaidya — I kid you not — is funny as all hell. The subject is serious but he brings a refreshing light touch. Watch the embedded video below the fold.

    Mechai Viravaidya or ‘Mr Condom’ as fondly called across Thailand has brought about a condom revolution in the past decade in the country. So much so that it has brought about serious awareness & the relative population stats have gone down to 1.5 average number of children per family as compared to 7 children per family. Condoms are more commonly known as ‘mechais’ in Thailand.
