Ramu is 35 years old and has been weaving rugs for the past one and a half years. He is a father of two sons and hails from a small village of Bikaner. He has been sentenced to life-time imprisonment and he hopes to soon shift from central jail to open jail. He enjoys spending time on his loom because that sets him free from all the worries and acts as a form of meditation. Now having more experience, he guides the newer inmates that are a part of the program and has woven this rug with Vedprakash.
Gamla
Gamla which means flower pot is how Ramu and Vedprakash describe their rug. Initially, they were in a dilemma of what to weave in their Manchaha but their earnest desire to be free one day became their guiding light. Using a bright range of colors including blue, orange and yellow, they have woven pots, leaves and flowers into the rug. In addition to that, Ramu has woven an hourglass towards the top left corner of the rug. He says, “Everything will heal and bloom but it will take some time.”
