Last night a prison inmate has committed suicide by hanging himself at Palayamkottai Central Prison. He was convicted for murdering his wife in 2006. He has no visitors from his family although he has two young daughters and elderly parent. This scenario led him depression to frustration. The mental disturbance took away his life.
Hence it is not good sign for us; as it is first day of our work to begin in this central jail. we felt sad and paid homage to this departed inmate. we realized the importance of this noble service. So today we started work with most depressed prisoners. we will go regularly work along with prison official according to correctional administrative rules. We will ease inmates from their mental trauma by supporting their children and bridging family members with prisoners.
We feel more humble and responsible to reduce re-offending rate in India. We will achieve this mission. No matter the obstacles lay in front of us.
