Ahmedabad prisoners to record books for visually impaired persons
October 5, 2016
An audio book recording centre has been opened inside Sabarmati Central Jail in Ahmedabad.
Prisoners who have a good voice will record audio books that will be used by visually impaired people across the world.
The recording centre has six studios. These are in the same area where Mahatma Gandhi was jailed for a long time during India's Independence struggle.
The centre has been opened with the help of the Blind People's Association in Ahmedabad.
Prisoners who have a good knowledge of Gujarati, Hindi and English languages will be part of the program.
So far, 13 prisoners have been selected. They will be given some payment for this.
