My Comment: I had two choices: either to sit on fast some seniors had started against something I still have no idea about or to brave the Mandal heat and get them some beer bottles from across the river. This was ragging. Since I was from across the river, I chose the second option and never returned. Nevertheless, Irom Sharmila herself chose the first option, but did she have any evidence that Gandhi never resisted sitting on fast — at least the new age Gandhi, Anna Hazaare, has declared he has no interest in dying anymore. And so has declared Irom Sharmila today. This surprise for her associates and family should have brought her immense pleasure. Life is for increasing pleasure and reducing pain. Soildiers are the only idiots who deserve pain. Never try to match them: stay away from forces. Let them live in pain and die in pain! You enjoy life!
