Irom Sharmila weeps as she ends historic 16-year-long fast

Irom Sharmila
Iron Lady Irom Sharmila ends her 16-year fast. Taking a dab of honey on her fingers, Sharmila tears up, while tasting her first ‘meal’ in a manner of speaking through her mouth. Extremely emotional moment for Sharmila as she spends a quiet moment taking in the moment.

After breaking her fast she says her fight against AFSPA will continue. She said she wants to be the CM of Manipur and wanted to break her fast in front of the world. She said she was just a human being, not a goddess and admitted she did not know anything about politics but wanted to be the chief minister of Manipur. “I’ll never forget this moment,” she said finally breaking into a broad smile.

Asked if she was a woman in love, she replied saying it was a personal matter and it was very natural (to fall in love).
