The Punjab government has ordered the dismissal of a jail warden who was allegedly involved in the supply of drugs to jail inmates, a state government spokesman said Wednesday.

The head warden, Ajmer Singh, who was posted at Central Jail in Kapurthala, 175 km from here, was accused of helping a jail inmate purchase heroin worth Rs. 1,48,000.

The dismissed warden has been barred from any government job in the future.

The supply and use of drugs in Punjab's jails is rampant. The state government has started a campaign against the drugs menace after drawing flak for being unable to control it.

If you can for a brief moment or two shut your eyes....and then proceed to imagine a yellow bill playing upon a golden harp. The harp as the rays of sunrise shafting through a stand of Rubinia trees and the Blue whistling thrush as the musician nibbling at the strings. Or, instead, conjure the thrush as nature’s magical flautist, coutured in feathers and speckles that are Krishna-like in their dark blues. Flutey melodies emit in endless variations from its bill and tease the spreading blush of yet another day. Writes Vikram Jit Singh
