This new initiative has been brought to augment the rehabilitation process of the Tihar jail inmates. The pain of being away from their loved ones is traumatizing, therefore we want to soothe their nerves and calm them through music. The performances have had positive influences on the prison inmates and many not only joined the chorus but also expressed the desire to learn music in the prison. The Art classes help them to express their feelings and their thoughts through visual art and it also helps in changing their attitude. To encourage them towards life & basic skills to prepare themselves to be a good human Legends of India has taken such an initiative.

Our effort shall help inmates guide themselves bringing in positivity into their lives and rejuvenate them.
