A new leaf turned... The Tihar Food CourtMistakes happen in life, being found guilty is not condemnation for perpetuity. Men deserve a second chance, though out of brood and guilt he may feel otherwise, it is important for a mature society to lend a helping hand.
It is like any other restaurant, located close to gate no 3. of Tihar Jail, which can house a crowd of 40. Neatly arranged wooden tables and a clean interior, a small arrangement for those who want to be seated outside, wherein 10 people can be accommodated. The walls showcase the artwork of the inmates.
These inmates have earned their way in to this place. Out of a batch of 50, seven were hand picked, trained in all aspects of hotel management. They have received formal training from experts in the sector.
The restaurant was launched in the mid of June, and is already well known with the locals. The apprehension that existed amongst people in the beginning is starting to wane.
This innovative rehabilitation idea has given these inmates an opportunity to turn over a new leaf. It gives them a career and also enables them to focus on what they gained once they are released. The inmates are already talking about setting up similar restaurants once they are out on the streets.
