Rice for Mengoubi

Dear Mengoubi,

Defiance breeds death!
Sixteen years of force-feeding,
Orifice violated,
You stand proud and tall.

A woman pushed, scorned...
Hunger can be a weapon,
So you have proved...
Point well-made, Mengoubi.

Year after year we've lived
Birthdays and candles,
Happiness and tears-
All that have eluded one woman.

Today as you break the fast,
I salute the undulated spirit,
The courage and the bravery,
All that is Irom Chanu Sharmila❤️
