Imphal, May 8: Manipur rights crusader Irom Sharmila has found a place on the pages of Ripley’s Believe it or Not.
Ripley’s put up Sharmila’s sketch, along with a brief note on her struggle, on its website on April 13 this year.
Sharmila shares the page with two other items — one about the removal of a 200-pound tumour from the right leg of a Vietnamese and the other about Russia’s Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest lake which is home to the only completely freshwater species of seal.
Lucas Stram, researcher, Ripley Entertainment, conveyed this information to Kshetrimayum Onil, a trustee of Just Peace Foundation, an Imphal-based NGO, which is coordinating Sharmila’s campaign. Olin is a member of the foundation.
