The larger picture of Indian prisons is the one in which behind the bars, traumatized convicts live. But when it comes to the Indian VIPs, the story is vastly different.

The infection of discrimination has not left Indian prisons untouched either. The ‘regular’ convicts have to abide by the strict environment of the prisons, the ‘VIP’ convicts, on the other hand, live like free moody birds who do not mind chilling and enjoying their freedom within confinements every once in a while.

And how do the special cells like VIP and VVIP cells even make sense? I always thought that prison life is to punish and change some screwed personalities for good! However, the kind of luxuries some famous law-breakers have enjoyed in prison will shake your belief in this whole system.
