Amar Chand is 40 years old and is an inmate at Central Jail, Jaipur. He hails from a small village of Bihar and has been in Jaipur Jail from past 7 years. 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.
Jail Ki DeewareJail Ki Deeware or the walls of prison is what inspired Amar Chand to weave this rug. He started by weaving simple bricks that caught his attention and soon went on to weave a beautiful design that is painted on the walls of central ground in jail. The beautiful portrait of deer and flowers symbolize unity and peace that Amar aims to achieve in his life after the completion of his imprisonment.
