Guwahati Central Jail has got a new music school in its premises.
Inmates Raju Chanda, Sargam Rabha and eight others have started vocals and six others have started taking guitar lessons.
Artists Anup Sarma and Gita Devi are responsible for running the music school inside the central jail campus.
The school ‘Khuror Pansoi‘ was set up and started functioning from Monday. This initiative is a first-of-its-kind in the history of Assam prisons.
The curriculum is under the Bhatkhande Sangit Vidyapith. Recently, an exam was also conducted to assess the progress made by the inmates.
The objective of the school is to get music within the jail premises and improve the psychological mindset of the inmates.
The idea behind the music school is to make the prison life better.
