Raped, choked and left to die, Aruna Shanbaug lived in vegetative state for over four decades. Today, she died of pneumonia. But Aruna Shanbaug became the face of the entire debate around euthanasia and gave the country a ruling by the Supreme Court allowing passive euthanasia. On The Buck Stops Here, we revisit Aruna's story and ask whether we let her down by neither allowing her to live nor allowing her to die. We debate: was keeping her alive an act of compassion or cruelty? And does her death reopen the entire debate about right to die?
