Mahendra, the creative weaver from Jaipur is 27 years old and has been weaving rugs for the past 9 months. He hopes to quickly go back home and bring back the long-lost dignity of his family members by working hard for his family. Though he has been sentenced to life-time imprisonment but his strong-headedness and determination to start a normal life again is an inspiration to other inmates in the jail.
Mera Eeto Vala Galicha“Bricks make buildings and buildings inspire me to go out. Hence, I weaved bricks on my rug,” narrates Mahendra, an inmate at Jaipur Central Jail. He named his rug, ‘Mera Eeton Vala Galicha’ or ‘my rug of bricks’ and he laid a strong foundation with simple straight lines to highlight the simplicity that he aspires in his life. Full of hopes, positivity and life, Mahendra assured that his rug reflects who he is.
