Mohammed Vahid Khan from Jaipur, Rajasthan learned how to weave from his father when he was 12 years old. His family has been in Jaipur for over 75 years and they pass on the art of weaving from generation to generation; it has been his family’s only source of income since long. In his 20’s, he was convicted of murder, an incident he so deeply regrets went out of hand in a flash. He had initially only completed his education till 5th grade and later on continued his education till 10th from Indira Gandhi Open School while he was in Jaipur Central Jail. His 2 sons were brought up by his in-laws and they come to visit him regularly. Now 46 years old and transferred to Open Jail for good behaviour, he believes he has learned many life lessons about how one should conduct themselves and hopes that unlike him, others can learn it the easy way.
Dhoop Chhao
Named ‘dhoop chhao’ or ‘light and shadow’, this Manchaha has a deper philosophy of life running through it as the inspiration. Vahid says that he has seen a lot of dark times during his term at the jail and has also experienced little sparks of light and joy. He has conveyed that masterfully through patches of darkness and light on the rug with darker and lighter shades of the same colour, also trying to convey that there should always be stability and balance in everything.
