Lala Ram, Vikram Singh, and Ghanshyam are inmates at the Jaipur Central Jail for varying spans of time. They acquired the skill of weaving at the jail itself and spend a lot of time at the loom. Their rug is a hope for the future, to better time, and a brighter future that awaits them in the world.
Lagbhag ho gyaAll three of the weavers who have wholeheartedly brought rolls of yarn and dye to life with their figments of imagination are working hard to set things right. The bright colours and simple patterns are to fight the darkness felt at the jail and in their hearts. The top right corner of the rug, darker and hazier, is the last bit that they are to fill light in. They’re covering a long journey towards a happier time, and this rug is a reminder that they are almost there. That’s where the name ‘Lagbhag ho gya’ comes from, it means ‘I’m just about done’.
