Op Ed News reports on the death of Boa Sr. She was the last person fluent in the Bo language of the Andaman Islands (a territory of India, in the Bay of Bengal). So, her death breaks link with a 65,000-year-old culture.


Found this story at Op Ed News, who had linked to a story at The Guardian UK.

Though, if you go to CNN, you can see a video that has still photos and audio of this remarkable person. It is like taking a few moments to cherish 65,000 years of human culture.
