  4. Thank you very much for visiting my blog. I searched the web for the Cellular Jail... .Fortunately enough, it is no longer in use... Black and white is perfect for such a place.

    1. Thank you Shesha!
      Since you've been there too yourself very recently, you'd agree that the jail and the stories related to it were very depressing and painful! I was perhaps too dumbstruck to be able to write...

  33. Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening.

    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
