Tabla maestro Zakir Hussain left around 4000 inmates at the Yerawada Central Prison enthralled with his solo performance on Friday.
The event, also including Zakir’s interaction with the prisoners, was organised jointly by a local NGO and the prison administration as a part of their rehabilitation programme called ‘preranapath’.
While interacting with the inmates, Zakir said he was thrilled to perform inside the prison.
The Deputy Inspector General (Prison) Swati Sathe told that Zakir performed for 30 minutes.
She said since inmates were not allowed to go out, the jail administration, along with the NGO, organised this event on the premises of the facility.
The Prison Officer Jayashri Powar too performed in front of the inmates and Zakir.
