Prison literature is not new to our country. It was during the trying times before Independence that Mahatma Gandhi wrote My Experiments with Truth in Pune’s Yerawada Jail. The Discovery of India was the result of the four years that Pandit Nehru spent in Ahmednagar Fort. Jayaprakash Narayan wrote Prison Diary while incarcerated and Smt. Vijay Lakshmi Pandit wrote Prison Days in Naini Jail.
