Indore jail inmates celebrate Janmashtami with gusto

“Lord Krishna was born in jail. So, we thought we should also celebrate. After getting permission from the Superintendant of Police, a month back we started working on it. We have made everything—the sets, the hill with cotton and the lighting. We wanted to emphasise that Lord Krishna was born here, in prison, where we live. People from outside have also been allowed to come and celebrate with us. I don’t feel that I am in jail. I am enjoying this thoroughly. We all will try to follow Lord Krishna when we go out”, says Sushil Tiwari, an inmate.
