Posted on April 8, 2014 at 5:54pm 3 Comments

Very few Indians read the BBC Hindi Channel

Above is the most recent article on Sharmila. It's very rare for anyone writing about her actually to meet her. 

And below some pictures. I remain grateful to those who send her mail art. If you drop me your address I will try to…

I don´t understand what do you want me to do.  You can write to me in English.  It will be easier to understand each other.  Please go ahead!

Earthling, this is the last but certainly not the least welcome message to IUOMA you receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland. When you joined IUOMA on february 26 I was unable to welcome you on board.  At the time I was in a Celestial Journey far beyond the Milky Way. Now, back to planet Earth, I´d love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist. If this is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:


The Celestial Scribe

Terrene Embassy

Republik van Patland

Caixa Postal 24827





I look forward to see a piece of yours in our terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a Celestial Promise. I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.

Wow. You are both lucky to have each other. Thanks for telling all that. I think she will enjoy the commemorative booklet of stamps featuring the accused in the  Rivonia Trial (where Mandela and his comrades were accused of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment.) Each of the 12 pages has a stamp and brief bio of the freeedom fighter. its in one of the envelopes

If you don't mind me asking - what is her human rights involvement ? ( I see Human Rights Defender on the address) . I know a little about law and human rights.But maybe I should ask her about it! Maybe just give me a little clue so I don't put my foot in anything!

A picture is worth a thousand words...That's a very moving picture.

This was one of the collages in Irom's one envelope...I think you'll like it.

I've sent out 2 fat envelopes. I got worried that one might not reach her, so I split it into 2 mailings!
