Colours of the CageA searing account of life in prison and one mans fight for justiceIn May 2007 human rights activist Arun Ferreira was picked up from the railway station and arrested by the Nagpur police on charges of being a naxalite Over the next few months he was charged with crimes of criminal conspiracy murder possession of arms and rioting among others and incarcerated in one of the most notorious prisons in Maharashtra the Nagpur central jailThis is an account of the nearly five years that Ferreira was imprisoned We read in stark and unsparing detail about life in prison the torture the beatings the corrupt system the codes of. KafkaesueIn a short 160 page book the author narrates the nightmarish 5 year incarceration he suffered as an under trial in Nagpur Central Jail and the desperate attempts by the government and the police agencies to lock him up forever in 11 fabricated cases from all of which he was acuitted The first thing that stuck me about he book how easy to read the prose was how it was written with heroic optimism and a positive outlook despite the grim circumstancesThis is the sort of book upper caste born heterosexual and middle class rule abiding men like me need to read often to see the dark side of government and what it is like to be on the wrong side of the state I never had to speak with a policeman except for a signature for obtaining a passportThis real life events show that every prison in India is a Guantanamo Bay hiding in plain sightA chilling reminder on how much unjust power the state yields on its citizens and the absurd incapability of the judiciary in speeding up the trials as well as the price one has to pay for even holding the wrong ideologies in our heads
