Sapna – Doctoral studies
Ganesh, who attended the convocation ceremony with his wife, said, “I just want to be with my family. If I am free this year, I will pursue a doctorate in political science or psychology. When Ganesh killed the deputy, he was only 27 years old and had a degree in physics.
Ganesh was not the only student to have obtained his master’s degree at Cherlapally prison. Amer Mohammad Jamal, 38, who is serving a life sentence, joined him at the ceremony. Jamal said it was a proud day for my family. If my father was alive, he would have been very happy.
He said: ‘I was educated at home. My father was an Arabic professor at Osmania University. I finished my btech from mufkham jah college and worked in tech companies. My dream is to complete my doctoral studies.
Ganesh and Jamal want to further their education with their degrees. Like him, D Santosh Kumar, 29, is also in the game. After graduating, they hope to find a job after their release from prison. He has been in prison since the age of 18 for murder.
Regarding this, Professor Bina Chintalpuri said that this is the first time that we have offered a Masters in Psychology (MSc) to inmates in Telangana Prison. In 2018, Director General of Prisons VK Singh established a fully functioning psychology laboratory where experiments and research were carried out in the prison. Since then, 26 students have graduated and a new batch has started.
