Mahatma Gandhi was jailed more than ten times and altogether he spent six and half years behind bars in the prisons of India and South Africa. Once he said, “We would all profit from the kind of simplicity and solitude we find in jail.” Expressing his views about criminals and jails he wrote, “All criminals should be treated as patients and the jails should be hospitals admitting this class of patients for treatment and cure.”
