Whenever DMK MP Kanimozhi comes out of Tihar Prisons, the literature loving leader will have acquired one more skill -- candle making.

During her past over one month stay in the women's cell at the high security jail, Kanimozhi has, in her spare time, taken interest in the candle making unit and learnt how to make candles from her co-inmates, sources at Tihar Prisons said.

Candle making is one of the vocational courses introduced by Tihar authorities to keep inmates connected to the outside world through competition and skill enhancement.
A candle making unit exists in Jail number six which houses women inmates. Made by the women prisoners, scented candles are used inside the jail and also sold as jail factory products.

Kanimozhi, along with Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar, was sent to Tihar jail on May 20 after a special CBI court rejected her bail plea and ordered her "forthwith" arrest in in connection with the 2G spectrum scam.

Good to hear that she is using her time there, productively!
