Sister Mariola

Sister Mariola has been working with the jail inmates of Ajmer central jail since 1997. She is also a teacher in Sophia college in Ajmer which is right beside the central jail. She goes to the jail once a week. While our interview with her she got very emotional saying some of the prisoners have very good hearts. When asked what is the best thing of the job she replied "I love to help the wrongly convicted prisoners". She said she has been making handicrafts for them. A student of hers from the Sophia College has been providing all materials. She sells these handicrafts in the market. On the first occasion when she sold and came back to the jail with the money, the prisoners said please give this money to a poorer and more needy prisoner.
I wish there were more people like Sister Mariola who has a completely different thought even for prisoners.
Hope to see many such women.
