Swaraj Jail University

Throughout modern history, jails have been a blackspot for humanity. Society has not yet found a powerful way to deal with those who commit crimes except to banish them from our hearts and minds. But for Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Malcolm X and so many other social leaders, the time spent in jail was a period for deep learning, transformation and growth.

The film features the highly innovative Swaraj Jail University based in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. It is a space for the learner-inmates to connect to their deeper purpose and passion. This project was initiated in October 2018. Thanks to facilitators core team: Diken Patel, Indira Talreja, Monu Kushwaha, Priyank Kashyap and Manish Jain. All the music has been written and sung by the learner-inmates themselves – Parmeshwar Bhai and Judge Bhai. Film by Sanjay Maharishi and Govind Kharol.
