Behind bars

You've watched The Shawshank Redemption, right? Of course you have. Or else, you don't qualify as human. Even if you haven't, guess what? You're alive. So do the needful. In the meanwhile, let me tell you that the gist of the film is one shouldn't give up on hope—specifically when you're wrongly (or even rightly) imprisoned. Apparently, the thing about a jail is it not only reminds but also reveals who you are. On that bittersweet note, ever wondered why India's founding fathers were such visionaries? Maybe because they were repeatedly sent to the slammers where a person can do nothing but think and write. They had so much time to ponder about the future of our country. Think about it.
