Photographer's Note

This is a portion of historic Cellular Jail in Port Blair in Andaman. This jail has witnessed the most agonising part of India's fight for freedom from colonial rule. The barbaric torture of indian freedom fighters was at its extreme here. Though it appears to be a beautiful piece of architecture, this building is the one which no one ever wanted to reside.
The prison was designed like a starfish with seven such arms each meeting the other at the centre. Presently only three arms are left. The prison could accommodate about 700 prisoners at a time. The imprisonment in Cellular jail was called as 'Kala pani ki saza'.
