• Shorter stretch for Indian prisoners who pass yoga exam


    MUMBAI: Prison officers in western India have come up with a novel way for convicts to secure early release — master some yoga poses and pass an exam, an official said Wednesday. Inmates at Yerwada Central Jail in Maharashtra state can cut their sentences by up to three months if they impress wardens in the ancient Indian practice, said the prison chief responsible for the program. Prisoners have to answer questions such as “What is Yoga?” and “How does it help you?” as well as perform a series of complex moves.
