Catch up...

There are so many things to blog about and I havn't kept in touch. North Korea test a nuclear bomb. Kanshi Ram passes away. Schumacher's hopes get dashed in Japan.

But...

This I have got to blog about now..

Irom Sharmila is a marvel. The fact that she has not taken any food willingly for six years is something that continues to astound me. In Manipur, she is a legend and for all those who have come to know of her protest, she is an inspiration and a lesson in determination. But her struggle is not over.

She managed to somehow come to New Delhi, where she continues her bhookh hadtal.

You can support her or at least go meet her and maybe you would realise that there is an another side to the story. This is short notice but I hope this message reaches a lot of people --
