Luxury hotel stays are becoming so old fashioned, people nowadays are looking for having alternate experiences when they travel tent stays, igloo stays, living at the hanging edge of the hill.
If you are a person who looks for this sort of an experience, what better than having spending a night in a jail.
There is a 220-year-old District Central Jail at Sangareddy(Sangreddy is located 66 kilometers from the princely state of Hyderabad), which has now been converted into a museum, offering a 24-hour confinement under an innovative initiative called "Feel the Jail" launched by the Prisons department for people who want to spend time behind the bars and experience the feeling of being under detention at a nominal fee of Rs 500 for a day.
During the stay, the inmates will be provided with a prison uniform made of khadi, a steel meal plate and glass, a mug besides washing soap, bathing soap, bedding and other facilities as per state prison manual, in addition to a fan.
The 'prisoners' will be provided all the meals along with tea and refreshments as per the jail menu. While tea is prepared at the old jail, the meals include chapati, rice, rasam, pigeon pea, red gram dal, curry and curd, which is supplied from the new district jail near Kandi village on the outskirts of Sangareddy town.
There is no work schedule for visiting 'prisoners' but they have to clean their barracks and are free to plant saplings during their stay.
So far no one has applied in this unusual scheme and it is going to be closed down soon if no visits are made which is the main reason for me to post this blog. Why Miss Out On Such An Opportunity ?
