India Northeast Chaos

In this Thursday, March 10, 2011 photo, Irom Sharmila, center, a 39-year-old woman on a decade-long hunger strike to protest draconian laws the government uses against insurgency, is surrounded by other women activists on the day of her release in Imphal, in the northeastern Indian state of Manipur. Sharmila, who is under police custody, is force fed through a nose tube, but legally must be released every year. While India tries to assume its place as a rising world power, it is vexed by the conflict in Manipur and the other seemingly endless chain of hidden wars that challenge its ability to fully govern its own country.
