Irom Sharmila, who has been on a fast-unto-death since November 4, 2000 demanding the repeal of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958, donated 80 books on Friday to the State Central Library. Ms. Sharmila, known to be a voracious reader, donated the books from the sub jail where she has been kept on the charges of attempting to commit suicide. The books include one of her favourites, Dead Souls written by Nikolai Gogol.
