An Indian schoolgirl looks out from her school bus in Imphal, the capital of the northeastern Indian state of Manipur, August 17, 2005. Nearly five years ago, human rights activist Irom Sharmila went on a hunger strike in the remote Indian state of Manipur. Appalled by the shooting of 10 people by the army at a rural bus stop in November, 2000, she said she would fast until the government repealed a law that gives soldiers sweeping powers to kill suspects, with virtual immunity from prosecution.
