An important historical record of a traumatic period in India’s recent political history, Prisoners of conscience focuses on the state of emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi from June 1975to march 1977. During the emergency the media was muzzled, over 100,000 people were arrested without charge and imprisoned without trial. But political prisoners existed before the emergency, and they continue to exist even after it is over.
