We feel that a women, whose fast has crossed 10 years, is still ignored by government. We support the courage and patience of Irom, who is fighting on the Gandhian way of non violence, and set an example for others.We feel that every heart should have a pain on the issue of Irom Sharmila and everyone should support her to be heard on the basis of humanity.
With the Save Sharmila Campaign, candle light solidarity prayer, we all demanded from the government to take "initiative of talk" to save Irom's life.
