On 8th March 2007, Alokananda Roy was invited to the Presidency Correctional Home to celebrate Women's Day. She found young men with vibrant energy aimlessly moving around with no hope or zest for life. And she wondered - 'What if any of them was her own son! Thus started her 'Love Therapy'... returning hope into the lives of these boys and girls through dance. Since then, Ms. Roy has been training the correctional home inmates in dance and staging dance dramas wholly performed by them under her guidance.
