Shaheen Saddam, Mubarik Ali & Ramu are all inmates at the Bikaner Central Jail and weave rugs in the prisoners’ rehabilitation program. All three of them are experienced weavers and sat together to figure out how to design strong motifs on their rug. They all love nature and hope that the arid region of Bikaner slowly becomes lusher with the seasons. Through this, they weave stories of their families and loved ones.
Meri Lado
Meri Lado translates to ‘My dear daughter’ is how the weavers describe their rug. Ramu keeps sharing stories of her daughter with Saddam and Ali who became his friends in the prison. He has woven his daughter towards the right side of the rug. While Saddam and Ali started weaving kites, huts, peacocks, trees, fish and a pond where she usually used to spend the time during her childhood. Now, she is about to get married and will soon leave her father’s home which is shown by a wedding dress and a house at the top of the rug. Ramu says, “I didn’t even realize how quickly she grew up.”
