  • Description

    This is the story of the hundreds of women inmates lodged in Tihar Jail, Delhi; the largest prison in Southeast Asia.Over the years, the jail has earned itself the reputation for being one of the leading reformist prisons in this part of the world, though the author and photographer learn that this does not take away the pain and desolation of a life in confinement.They visited the women at Tihar several times over a period of one year;interacting with them at various levels and eventually winning there confidence, trust and friendship.Candid photographs capture the lives of these inmates, telling the story of hope in despair in despair. Rather than sympathizing with their cases or praising prison authorities efforts, this book is about the women their individual and collective strength and the spirit of survival they continue to display even in the darkest hours.Amba Batra Bakshi was born in New Delhi in 1980 and did her schoolling from Modern School and The Lawrence School, Sanawar.She graduated in Journalism from Lady Shriram College, and went on to do her Masters at City University, UK and, in2007 pursued Advance Non-Fiction writing at Harvard. She has been a news reporter since 2000 and has worked with the Indian Express, The Asian Age and The Guardian.In 2004, she recieved an award from the Press Institute of India for a series of stories on the lack of night sheltersin the winter, for homeless women in capital. She currently lives in New Delhi with her husband and eight-month-old son.Renuka Puri was born in 1969 in a remote village in Himachal Pradesh. After studying in the village school, she completed high school from Haryana and then joined the Arts College, Chandigarh to pursue Graphic Design. She worked in an ad agency before taking to photography, a better medium, she feels, for expressing herself and a more satisfying career. After freelancing for a few magazines and the U.P Tourism department, she joined The Indian Express in 1997. Having captured a number of interesting subjects from fashion shows to political developments, she was choosen by Fuzi films, in 2005, as one of the super six women photographers, and her work was displayed around the country.
