Women inmates at Tihar who have been up to 12 years with a 'good conduct' record will now be rehabilitated in a semi-open jail that gives them some freedom in one room flats.

Once a convict is always a convict they say, but they can change too, and once they change they have to be given a right to integrate with the outer world.
I’ve always wondered about the life of people inside a prison. Living around the grilles, with armed guards and overcrowded cells must literally be a hell for the inmates.
But the entire idea of a jail system is being redefined by a new four-storey building inside Tihar jail’s 400-acre complex. This jail complex is unusual, since there are no guards watching it.
Tihar is one of the most populated prisons in the country with, 566 women prisoners lodged across all jails of whom 125 have been convicted and the rest on trial.
Selected women inmates who have been jailed for at least 12 years and have displayed ‘good conduct’, will be eligible for transfer to the new Tihar semi-open jail. This is a good move from Delhi government, that these inmates can now enjoy fresh air, and and gets away from the hard chores and intimidating stares.
This new Tihar semi-open jail will start functioning in next ten days. The requisite clearance from the state government and the lieutenant governor is already received by the jail officials, and six among the women prisoners who are presently serving a life sentence will be moved to the new open jail complex as first batch. The inmates will take up the charges of the new complex where they are already been assigned for kitchen, housekeeping etc.
In this jail complex, the authorities have eschewed the conventional jail system, allowing these women to move freely within it, though there will be one guard outside the semi-open jail building.
“Only prisoners with a good track record, who have not violated any rule during their stay, will be transferred there. After two years, the prisoners will be eligible for a transfer to an open jail,” a senior jail officer said.
The jail administration had opened its first semi-open jail in 2013, which was restricted to male prisoners. Women prisoners can also now receive the same facilities.
The officials who made this happen deserve a huge round of applause. They believed in the strength of reformation. Sometimes a slice of the outside world may change a prisoner, and make her ready for normal life outside the prison!

Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
