More than 2,000 inmates of Arthur Road Jail had a field day with Ramdev on Saturday during a yoga session organised by state prisons department.

Several high-profile accused, including Peter Mukerjea and Mustafa Dossa, were seen attending the session.

“I just want to say forget what you have done in your past and concentrate on future... You should all try and forget the feeling of revenge,” said Ramdev to the inmates.

As the yoga guru displayed asanas on stage, all the inmates put their best foot forward and followed his instructions. Even Mukherjea was seen trying his best to follow Ramdev.

“For me, the fee for this session is a promise from all the inmates to forget taking revenge from anyone, if they intend to,” said Ramdev, to which Mukherjea, among other inmates, raised his hand in affirmation.

While the older inmates tried their best to do the asanas, the younger ones seemed to be doing better.

Before the yoga session began, the inmates enjoyed live performances of devotional and old Bollywood songs.
