Praveen Halappanavar celebrated Savita's life with close friends as he took a day away from his campaign for a public inquiry into her death.

"It is difficult to believe it has been a month. I remembered her privately with some friends. We had a small prayer service for her," he said.

Mr Halappanavar said he had been inundated with messages of support from around the world, which had helped him continue with his fight.

"I have been receiving letters and emails from everywhere. People are sending them from around the world to the Indian Ambassador and he has passed them on, the same with my solicitor. They have been a huge support.

"I suppose anyone, no matter what their religion or where they are from in the world, can relate to this," he added.

Al Jazeera, the BBC, and reporters from Denmark and Germany are in Galway to cover the story.

'Time' is also planning an article on Ms Halappanavar's sudden death.
