waiting for a piece to get out-dated…(by parismita)

A fragment from a piece I did in 2006, when Irom Sharmila came to Delhi, and a body of protests sprung  up around her. I used this piece in a pamphlet  in D.U. earlier this year too .  Its funny to be able to go back to a piece that I thought would be a very ‘dated’ piece , and then year after year, see no need to put in edits, change references etc. It is already 2010. The only thing to do is to change the ‘number’of years Irom has been fasting from 4 to 6 to 10 and so on…
