Life in JailHaunting Images
It’s incredible to look back and realize I had survived this ordeal. It is an experience that cannot be justified without dedicating a whole book to it. The story must be read and shared to remember individuals who died or spent years in prison at the mercy of vicious prosecutors, a dysfunctional system, and outmoded mindsets.
What my Mom said: I always reminded Coco that she had the most arduous situation in simply staying alive despite the degradation, assaults, and complete isolation inflicted upon her for over two years. I’m awe inspired by Coco’s strength of character and selflessness in helping others to maintain hope in the most dire of circumstances. I thank God for providing a glimmer of light to Coco that she strove toward in the midst of unbearable darkness. All my love, mom💕🌺
MY UNBELIEVALBLE LEGAL COUNSEL
- At one time, I believe I had 6 lawyers working on my case, of course not together. And I have a horrible reputation for being demanding (imagine that), sarcastic (surprise) and aggressive. After going through practically every lawyer in North India, I finally found an intelligent, bright, articulate scholar of law to represent me and speaks English better than I do. I might not ever be able to pay my bills to this guy… But he was amazing. He stuck by me when I was irate and screaming and psychotic in the hospital and crying in court. He saw the most miserable side to me. Once again, he is my amazing lawyer, thank you for tolerating your neurotic client.
- Rashid, the manager of Bella Health, who started in April 2012 as an intern and now runs Bella Health. He diligently visited me two times a week for over a year. He did my shopping and sent my letters. He waited for hours outside of the jail to get entry in all sorts of weather. He is HERO and so much thanks to him for his kindness and dedication.
MY BEST FRIEND
My bestest Amiga… One of many, many friends who kept in touch with me and sent me letters. It made a world of difference…. Tamarita, Sarah, Abbie, JeAnn, Andrea, Jacqueline, Manavhi, Puja. Friends I will never be able to express how thankful I am for your friendship and supporting me in this horrific time.
