Oh! My God

Call this a prison?

Adarsh Karagar located on the outskirts of Lucknow is a unique prison. The convicts in this jail are permitted to move about freely. They also earn their living. Some have laundries, other run barber shops while some have formed a musical band which is in great demand at functions. They queue up each morning before leaving for their chosen work but have to return by sundown. But of course Adarsh Karagar is not for all and sundry. It is only meant for ‘star prisoners’ with exemplary records who are between 21 and 40 years, physically fit and have strong family ties. The Karagar also has an open village with 50 acres of land for cooperative farming. The main aim of this jail is to reform the convicts by providing financial and emotional security.
