In the aftermath of the political upheavals of the 1970s, many who suffered for their political convictions have recounted the ruthless tyranny of those dark times in prison memoirs. Here, Joya Mitra recalls the less fortunate ones, the ones she left behind. These are portraits of women who overstepped the boundaries of social norms sometimes unknowingly, but most often because they were deprived of all choice, women who were banished from society and kept in prisons for ‘correction’.
