    Arun Ferreira finally reveals the story of his time in prison in Colours of the Cage: A Prison Memoir.

    Summary of the Book

    In May 2007, several newspapers around India bore the photo of a man who was being called the leader of the CPI(M) political party. The Maoist party had long been banned, but it held clandestine meetings and operations which were considered damaging to the country as a whole. Arun Ferreira was being called the mastermind behind its propaganda and communications wing. He detained by the court and condemned to prison. However, the nightmare had only begun. In prison, he was tortured and abused constantly. Over the next few years, each of the ten cases slapped against him fell apart: the court couldn’t find any proof of its charges. At long last, Arun Ferreira was a free man. Now he reveals the horrors he faced in prison and describes how several others are facing similar situations all around India. This book is an eye-witness account of life in an Indian prison.

    Good book.. Recommended..

    The book is one of the best books on the harsh realities of Prison life. Though I don't share the author's enthusiasm about State's selective targeting based on religion, the book is engaging. If you are interested in Non-fiction genre, please get it..

    Very well written- excellent read

    The author has written the book beautifully. Dealing with such a serious and critical issue yet the book isn't a heavy read. It gives the reader insight into the reality lived by the author that is so different from an everyday existence. It also throws light on the culture and life in prison. Definitely recommended reading.

    Face off with elusive "Justice" !!

    A book review in Frontline encouraged me to buy it. It is the narrative of oppressed. The book touches various shades of the violence perpetrated by the state and the corruption in Indian prisons. While we are busy in portraying ourselves as the largest democracy of the world and the state in branding all those who resist its oppression as terrorists, the roots of the justice system are getting corroded in the blindness of the ignorance.

    The book touches the importance of an individual's lif...
