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.
Mere Ghar Ka Rasta“I miss my home every day and I wanted to weave something that keeps me busy yet attached to the beautiful feeling of being closer to my village. Hence, I weaved a road that would guide me on my way to the village,” narrates Amar in a low-deep voice. Amar is an inmate at the Jaipur Central Jail; however, his hardships haven’t crumbled him rather they have made him stronger and wiser. He also weaved 3 kites in his rug which he wishes to fly along with his three close friends back in his village.
