Meet Irom Sharmila, Manipur’s Iron Lady

She refused to eat for 16 years demanding the repeal of AFSPA from Manipur. This made her one of India’s most prominent faces of resistance. She turned 47 today. Who is she?

    India is a barbaric country that doesn't let its people live happily, express freely, worship as per ones desire. It has made a so called paradise on earth "KASHMIR" hell by its military might. We also want to live our life as per our deeds but it doesn't let us to do so. She absolutely is an IRON LADY and i salute u for your courage and determination and i also reject india as my country and have no love and affection for this stupid country of stupid people.
