New Delhi, June 23: DMK MP Kanimozhi comes out of Tihar prisons, the literature-loving leader will have acquired a new skill — candle making.

During her stay, at the women’s cell of the high security jail, Kanimozhi has taken an interest in the prison’s candle-making unit and learnt how to make candles from her co-inmates, sources at Tihar said.

Candle making is one of the vocational courses offered 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 prisoners, scented candles are used inside the jail and also sold as jail factory products.

Prison sources said the DMK Rajya Sabha member also spends her leisure reading books. Even though her bail plea was rejected twice by the courts, Kanimozhi has never been found to be upset. She behaves well with all those she comes across inside the jail, sources said.

Her father DMK chief M Karunanidhi, her mother, Rajathi Ammal, and others visited her on Tuesday. They brought her several packets of Murukku. Kanimozhi has a slew of people coming to meet her everyday. DMK leaders are lined up on Jail Road to visit her.
