A rehabilitation program taking place in a Indian prison in the state of Jammu is somewhat unusual in nature, and involves teaching inmates to play the drums and bagpipes in an effort to reform their attitudes and societal involvement. The prison of Kotbhalwal has a 20 strong band of pipe players, that when accomplised enough, plan on playing at weddings and other various funcions in the community.
