This morning a friend sent me a story about somebody who has created a prison-village, to allow prisoners to live with dignity. The intention behind the work is so noble!! It indicates that there is no hatred to criminals; somebody wants to give them their life back.
It sent me thinking. The famous motivational speaker Ms. Lisa Nichols (motivatingthemasses.com) in her recent interview is discussing about the ‘father of her son’; who is undergoing imprisonment since her 20 plus year old son was 8 months old.
He has written 4 books already from the prison!!!!
I had some disturbing feeling at first because it challenged my paradigm perhaps. But here is an opportunity-path very less walked, surely.
This also brings the memories of the award winning movie of V.Shantaram – “:Do Akhen Barah Hath”? What about the famous movie “Sholay”? Aren’t the protagonists all dealing with prisoners?
I stumbled upon the story of a prisoner who has been unduly implicated and imprisoned for 6 years. His career is gone. While we can debate about the judicial system and the justice of nature, we can think of giving back his life.
Thinking about a niche. Such a story being sent to me by a friend who observes me through my face-book posts only. I do not yet know, but am I already giving out this impression that I can be a medium who brings out the best, even of prisoners? What a blessing if that is so.
I had posted the link in a bigger group but it was a little out of place so I deleted. Isn’t that a clue again that I am contemplating so much in this group which also is questioning my own sense of responsibility?
Everything brings a greater blessing. May be one of my course will now be designed for that audience also. It has to be… Performance Optimization and Mentoring of Prison Inmates (POMPI course). Wow !!
It brings a bigger responsibility of identifying what was left of life and what has been discovered.The universe is at work in the unfolding, whether pleasant or unpleasant; and that needs to be recognized for the bigger objective.
I wondered if there can be a niche thought around serving the prisoners? Before and after the crime they are human beings; who surely caused difficulty for fellow human beings at some point of time. But that guilt and pain can be turned to something else, possibly.
