Surji from Manoharpura village is a mother of six children, four daughters and two sons. She is 40 years and has been weaving rugs for more than 20 years now. She enjoys Manchaha and wants to work on Manchaha only. She feels that Manchaha is an escape from the harsh realities of life and is a means to unleash the creative potential that women weavers of her village carry.
Satrangi Pahaad The rug Satrangi Pahaad or the seven colored mountains is a creative reflection of Surji’s imagination. “I love mountains and the rainbow, hence I weaved big mountains and painted them all in seven shades of rainbow,” narrates Surji with a confident smile. She went on saying that initially she was very scared to even start but then she decided to follow her heart and soon the design idea started floating inside her mind and that is how the rug got its shape.
