An eight-foot tall condom greeted Microsoft chairman Bill Gates during a visit to an Indian city, a tribute to mark his generosity in fighting AIDS.

The world's richest man smiled when he saw the giant air-filled condom in India's rising technology hub of Hyderabad, where his company has opened its first software development center outside the United States.

The billionaire inaugurated his four-day visit to India on Monday by announcing $100 million in contributions from his charity, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to spread awareness on AIDS.

India has four million people with HIV (news - web sites), the virus that causes AIDS, making it the second largest number in the world after South Africa.
