NEW DELHI — A few drops of honey. That's now Indian human rights activist Irom Sharmila on Tuesday ended her epic 16-year old hunger strike to protest alleged military abuses. Now she wants to build up the strength to run for political office next year.
Sharmila, 43, has not eaten for years as a protest against an immunity law covering Indian military in the country’s conflict zones such as her home state, the northeastern state of Manipur, where a separatist rebellion has raged for nearly four decades.
