Amar Pratap is 40 years old and hails from a small village, Anandpur in Rajasthan. He has been weaving rugs for the past 6 months now and enjoys the newly found freedom that he has got after adopting the art of rug weaving. He hopes to soon go back home and live a dignified life once again.
Hum Chaar The rug, ham chaar or we four is dedicated to the amazing quadrant of Amar and his three friends in Bikaner Central Jail. “We are sailing the same boat and sailing becomes easier when you have friends around. We take our tea together and exchange our thoughts during the tea time hence, I weaved four cups of tea into my rug. The one in different color is mine while the rest three belongs to my favorite friends”, says Amar in a very matured voice. He also weaved stripes and lines which depict the ups and downs of life that he has gone through.
