Vinod and Surjan are both inmates in the Bikaner Central Jail, and have learned how to weave as a part of the prisoners’ rehabilitation program. Since they are new to weaving, their designs feature simple designs, although they push their limits by trying to make artistic depictions on their rugs.
‘Pyas’ is the hindi word for feeling thirsty, and describes a story of how Surjan used to watch birds flock into the prison every day looking around for a drink of water. They used to have water from a cup, which is woven in the right of the carpet. Even on days where there was no water in the cup, the birds flew in as a routine, and Surjan soon felt the regular visits were just for him. As this was their first Manchaha, Vinod and Surjan practiced knots at the bottom of the rug, and tried their hand and varying patterns going up. The end result displays itself as an artistic picture, the haziness at the bottom representing the floor while a bird is seen flying through the frame.
