Woman journalist in jail barrack with Satyagrahi in UP

By on Thursday, February 20, 2020

I had never thought during my 31 years of life that I shall address you from the jail. It is the 5th day of my jail period in Ghazipur UP. The 4 days experience of women cell of jail is much more lessoning. It is the learning about the country and about me too.
Reading the experiment with the truth by Gandhi these learnings become more condensed. I see that the changing of rulers does not much change the rule if the intention of rulers did not change. This thing is not being said for a party or in connection with the government.
Arresting of 10 onfoot-journeymen including even a journalist are jailed shows what type of ruler's intention are eventually? If our onfoot journey may endanger breaching of peace in the state or the country,  should not there have considered over this question how much weak is the peace of the state?
More than 40 women are in the two barracks in the jail while mere 6 prisoners can accommodate in a barrack. Even the officer of this jail accepts that there is the shortage of amenities. Maximum women are in captivity of dowry harassment cases. Even a few of them are those whose cases are under trial for the past five years, but there is no decision yet. Five years kept in jail, without being a culprit? Unless the crime is proved, they all are not culprit. If let the captive by the court are acquitted declaring them innocents, who will return them their five precious years?
A few of the women are here, whose bail have been granted; but none are who file their bail-bond. Whose responsibility is of these?  Is it of none? You will see such India inside the jail which is extremely helpless. These women see me with full of expectation.They seem that I shall do something better for them. They say just as you are kept in jail without an offence we all are here. If a woman is telling the truth, it is the unsuccess of our justice system.
You all are well familiar with the tardy justice system, but this motionless affects how them, they can understand much how violent and inhuman are this.
There is the need to work on the cases of daughter-in-laws to be killed or committing suicide especially.
There is the need of exact counseling. Becoming no mutual harmony among the families can carry them on which verge.
6 of a family members are in jail; one of them lost his life. The little children loss their future and the hefty fees are to be given to the lawyers; mostly non education and lack of knowledge creates the odd conditions. The lawyers, the police and the employees are not trained in this way that the justice should be delivered earliest in the least damages and the things should be dealt by the mediation.
Gandhi writes about his lesson learnt from his first case in Pritoria: ‘I learnt the true advocacy; learnt to extract bright side of human behavior; learnt to go in the heart of human.I could know that the counsel’s duty is to fill the ditch between Furican. This lesson deepen a root in my inner self that the maximum time period of my 20 years advocacy profession passed in my office to conciliate the hundreds of cases. I lost nothing in it—mere money was in deficit that cannot be said, but not lost the spirit."
Our advocates, officers and the employees working in the administration all have the need to learn from this. An incident of yesterday is to mention here. Mr Afzal Ansari, MP of this constituency, came to meet Satyagrahi. Women prison cell barrack was also messaged that he would go there. All the women of barrack in the terse abusive language were ordered that the cloths were being dryered hanging on pegged woods in the craters between the bricks of walls should be removed immediately; my cloths were too there. There were no system of cloth drying. My cloths too were removed, but the MP did not come inside. I was taken to the police superintendent office to meet with them. Mr MP lodged the objection to accommodates me in this way like other captives. He instructed him to provide the amenities separately. He sends all the bed stuff for me from outside, but what for other prisoners?
No amenities are available in the barracks. There is no bathroom to bathe in 12-A. you can bathe in open. The stuff that is brought to the captives’ home from their closeone, or their cloths in plastic bags are supported by hanging on pegs in the wall. There is no almirah or lockers. There is no breakfast daily morning. the two buns and the grams each interval of two days in a week and remaining other days provision are tea.
Such type of muddle I thinks to be in the maximum jails. One more problem what I am able to see here is that is the conversation. There is no quick transit of communication to the captives waiting the bail or other information in the jail. Next day, unless the family members does not reach to them, they swing in the pool of hope and doubts; weeps. I feels this time a big need to reform in the jail improvement and the judicial systems.
