INTRO: Prisoners take to dance therapy in eastern India. Prisoners being trained in various performing dances at Presidency jail in India's eastern Kolkata as part of the reform process.


STORY:  Prisoners at Presidency jail also known as Presidency Correctional Home in India's eastern Kolkata(
加爾各答) are being trained in various performing dances as part of the reform process.

The state Government in India's eastern West Bengal(
西孟加拉邦) has been working for the last five years to offer a respectable life to prisoners. Besides jails being termed correctional homes, the government is adopting various methods to engage prisoners in constructive activities and transform all jails into correctional homes. 

Odissi dancer, Alokananda Ray has been training over 50 prisoners in the jail for the past one year and has witnessed a tremendous change in the convicts. Alokananda says she feels she is not simply a therapist but a motherly figure to the young boys at the prison. She adds with pride that these prisoners trained by her performed in a dance festival and it was for the first time in the world that prisoners staged a public performance.

To generate the interest of the prisoners, Alokananda opted for martial dance forms like Kalaripattu and Chhau, which have bold music and manly steps instead of Indian classical dance. But now the jail inmates are open to all kinds of dances.

“Initially none of the prisoners could move a step. It's a pity that people don't see the beginning they (people) only see the finished product. If they did, they would see the tremendous physical transformation, which can only come through internal transformation,” said Alokananda Ray, trainer.

The prisoners feel that with the learning of dance forms happiness has returned into their lives. 

“The greatest thing that I have received from this dance is the happiness and the smile on my face. I had no smile on my face for the past few years. This is the greatest thing that I have received,” said Naizal Axara, Prisoner.

The prisoners acknowledge that the dance has turned their prison cell into a lively home. They also say that it is the only ray of hope in their lives to look forward. Besides entertaining them, the rhythm, music and dance movements have contributed to their mental and physical well-being.
