An Excerpt from the phone call of Stan Swamy from the Prison
Phone Message by Stan Swamy
Greetings from Taloja prison, Mumbai. I hope you are all keeping fine.
I want to share with you that I am keeping good health, despite some ailments.
A few fellow prisoners are very helpful to me. Considering my age and inability to adopt to prison conditions, I am given an assistant to help me to move around. I have been given a private cell with commode facility and simple special diet.
I have access to some journals and magazines.
I spend my time in reading, praying and interacting with fellow prisoners.
I have asked for some warm clothes as it is cold here. I hope the prison authorities will permit me to have them to protect me.
I am languishing in prison for some alleged offences, which I have not committed.
If this is God’s will, so be it.
I hope truth will win and I will be released soon on bail.
I received your greetings and prayers through one of my Jesuit colleagues, whom I called over phone on 25 October, Sunday morning.
I am allowed to make phone calls once in 15 days.
Continue to remember me and all my friends here in the prison.
Fr. Stan Swamy
