Manbhar is a 50-year-old weaver from Kekri, Rajasthan. Her husband wanted to go out in search of an alternate job meanwhile he introduced her to weaving so that even she could have some work at hand. It has been a few decades since she has been engrossed into weaving and has managed to influence others as well. She says that she can sum up her entire life in just two words: weaving and food. Having seen many ups and downs in life, she has transformed herself into a really humble woman who would address your problems as her own and give solutions like no other person can. Moreover, she cherishes her past as she feels that now she is old enough to do so.
Kuch KuchKuch Kuch which translates to little-little or something-something is how Manbhar describes her rug. She had an earnest desire to weave everything in her Manchaha but realising the fact that it won’t be possible she says, “As I could not make everything, I made something out of everything.” Taking inspiration from her surroundings, she incorporated various designs like flower pots, a boundary wall, flowers and conical structures. Initially while weaving the rug, she was in a dilemma. She went on to weave some designs but eventually ended up untangling the threads again and again. ‘Kuch Kuch’ also refers to the mixed feelings she had while weaving her Manchaha.
