The severity of orphanages, old age homes,and mental asylum should never be exposed to hypocrites and sexually starved public. This itself can lead the inmates to a coercive space", said Biju Prabhakar IAS, one among the panelist of Design of Coercive Mobility Space: Mental asylums,Orphanages and Prison. Shemi and Bhagyalakshmi were the other two panel members with Dr.Suresh Kumar as the moderator.
Bhagyalakshmi pointed out the condition of girls and children in the orphanages where they are forced to marry someone by not even considering the idea of further education. The survivors should be given an ideal reformatory space with activities that can help them to prepare to face their future endeavours.
The engineers and architects should build a home considering the inmates. The government and authorities need to design a dream space for them rather than confining them to four walls. Therefore the atmosphere in such institution should be a healing space for the survivors that can improve their personality and viewpoints on life.
The session concluded with Bhagyalakshmi sharing her dream of associating an orphanage and old age home in the future which would help them build a moral connect between the inmates.
