Lala Ram is 42 years old and is an inmate at the Jaipur central jail from past 11 years. He learnt the art of carpet weaving at the jail along with Rakesh and enjoys his time at the loom. Despite being in jail, they all feel that being able to support their families by working hard is their redemption. Arvind learned how to weave from Rakesh, after Rakesh had experience with a few Manchahas.
Padharo maro des
‘Padharo maro des’ is the catchphrase used to welcome visitors to Rajasthan, and it is a unique story depicted by Lala, Rakesh and Arvind. Their Manchaha features many small trees, and one large one with birds, a common sight in the semi-arid region due to the scarcity of food, water and shade. There is a large entryway on the bottom right of the rug to set the scene, while there is a large depiction of a traditional dancer, small elephants, a peacock and even a gun. Explaining the gun, Rakesh shares, “There are many things that seem fun when you’re young, and things can easily go out of hand. The gun to me shows that when you are aware of the consequences, you know when to stop. Precaution is better than cure.”
