Irom Chanu Sharmila, dubbed the "Iron Lady of Manipur," has completed her tenth year on hunger strike to protest civilian killings in Manipur. From the article: "Now 38, she was arrested shortly after beginning her protest – on charges of attempted suicide – and was sent to a prison hospital where she began a daily routine of being force-fed vitamins and nutrients via a nasal drip. Ms Sharmila is frequently set free by local courts, but once outside she resumes her hunger strike and is rearrested." And you complain when you have to eat a late lunch.
