Description

About the Book: Iron Irom: Two Journeys


Who is Irom Chanu Sharmila?

Is she a human rights activist? Is she a political prisoner? Isshe a prolific poet? Is she a symbol of hope for the people ofManipur?

Incarcerated like a petty criminal in a jail ward in a Manipurhospital, isolated by the State through a posse of policemen at herdoor, she is all this and much more. Despite coverage in the media,numerous awareness campaigns and valiant efforts by supporters andactivists, most people still know her only as the lady with a tubein her nose .

Since the year 2000, mm Sharmila has remained steadfast in herdetermination to not eat or drink anything. She cleans her teethwith thy cotton and her lips with spirit so as not to sully herfast. Her body is wasted inside. Her menstrual cycles have stopped.Yet she is resolute. What is the mason behind her extraordinarydecision? She single-handedly spearheads the movement against theArmed Forces Special Powers Act, or AFSPA, in force in the sevennortheastern states and Jammu and Kashmir. She continues her hungerstrike year after long and lonely year, using her body as herweapon and the traditional satyagraha form as her method ofprotest. What makes her protest unusual is that, rather than beingan intellectual construct, it is a deep human response to the deathand violence around her.

What lies ahead for Sharmila and her non-violent struggle? Howmany years will it take for the authorities to take note of hersilent protest?

No one has the answers, not even Sharmila.

While her achingly poignant poem Birth provides a glimpse intothe mind of a remarkable woman, the hard-hitting report Where theAbnormal Ls Normal by Minnie Vaid reveals the extent of public fearand damage caused by the Indian governments unrelenting stance onAFSPA.
