New Delhi: Jail seems to have different effects on different people. While some become hardened criminal after serving a jail term, some become more sober than before. DMK leader and 2G spectrum allocation scam accused Kanimozhi has the latter effect of jail on her, as she is turned into a Good Samaritan.
According to reports, Karunanidhi’s daughter, who is lodged in Delhi’s Tihar Jail, has become quite popular amongst her fellow prisoners in jail number 6, lending a patient ear to their woes and going out of the way to help them.
Reports suggest that when there was a water crisis in jail number 6 recently, she was approached by the inmates.
Kanimozhi took the matter seriously and approached jail authorities with the problem and it was solved within no time. This act helped her gain instant popularity among her fellow prisoners.
Eventually, she has become so popular in the jail that inmates stand in queue every morning to wish her when she leaves for court hearing.
The Good Samaritan role that she is playing is not only confined to Tihar, as even in court, she greets everyone who meets her with a smile and looks like a perfect picture of poise and composure.
The sources also revealed that, when she comes back in the evening, she is greeted by the inmates followed by another round of chit chat session.
It has also been reported that she is in regular talks with the jail authorities about the facilities in the prison.
Kanimozhi spends most of her time in jail studying or watching TV in her cell. She is allowed home-cooked food but at times she does eat the jail food also.
