Jp In Jail
When Indira Gandhi declared a state of Emergency in 1975, the people of India were deprived of their freedom and fundamental rights. The event remains a dark chapter in the history of the sub-continent. Jayaprakash Narayan, branded 'Enemy No.1'of the state, was arrested under Maintenance of Internal Security Act (MISA) and dispatched to Chandigarh's 'Emergency Jail'. Faced with the state's brute force, individuals and institutions surrendered and the world's largest democracy was drifting towards dictatorship. JP, who had tirelessly toiled for the triumph of freedom, dared the might of Emergency dictatorship and fought to restore democracy in India. During JP's six-month confinement, India's 'Second Mahatma'transformed defeat into triumph; the 'Delhi Durbar'indulged in a series of intrigues to isolate and incapacitate him, and reconciliation between Indira Gandhi and JP was sabotaged by a 'coterie'wielding 'veto power'. A riveting first-person, authentic and uncensored account by M.G. Devasahayam, who as district magistrate and inspector-general, prisons, at the time, was in effect JP's custodian, and closely associated with him throughout his confinement.
About the Author
M.G. Devasahayam is an economist-administrator with firsthand experience of the working and ethos of the Indian army, the IAS, the public and private sectors, entrepreneurship, political parties, as well as NGOs. He is also an avid reader and writer. When Jayaprakash Narayan, JP as he was popularly known, was in Chandigarh's 'Emergency Jail', Devasahayam was district magistrate cum inspector-general prisons of the union territory and, as such, was JP's custodian. A humane and warm relationship developed between the two, which lasted till JP, the architect of 'India's Second Freedom', passed away in October 1979. Mahatma Gandhi, Jayaprakash Narayan and Mother Teresa were, in the opinion of the author, the three greatest human beings to walk the Indian soil this last century. The privilege of knowing and closely associating with JP has been one of the most fulfilling happenings of Devasahayam's life.
