Puducherry jail makes use of dance remedy to rehabilitate inmates

Prisoners within the central jail within the Indian union territory of Puducherry briefly overlook their worries once they begin dancing.

The “dance remedy” is a part of a rehabilitation programme provided to them by jail authorities.

It is an unconventional possibility – many Indian prisons are grim, overcrowded and violent areas that supply few alternatives for inmates to rebuild their lives.

However Puducherry jail officers say the programme is a success with prisoners – who’re all serving life sentences – and that there’s a seen discount of their stress ranges.

Ravideep Singh Chahar, Inspector Basic of prisons in Puducherry, says they now hope to make dance remedy an integral a part of the jail reform programme.
