Alokananda Roy talks about why prison inmates deserve a second chance and recognition as a human being, to help them get back to society. She narrates her experiences as an acclaimed dancer, liberating inmates through Love and Dance. The name Ms. Alokananda Roy, conjures an image of grace and elegance. Her versatility comes through in her innovative dancing styles and creative stage productions. Taking great pleasure, in being involved with varied creative activities, did never refrain her from extending genuine care and compassion to the society at large.
Her journey begun as an uninhibited and ambition-less dancer, who sought pure joy in performing her art, without being confined to the profession of DANCE. Never edged herself towards competition nor did she seek popularity. Amidst all her work she remained conscious of her social responsibilities and always aspired to give every individual a fair chance in life. That made her initiate Inspiration Foundation, an initiative that trained under-privileged children in dance, music, recitations and art. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
