Lalita Devi lives in Karana village in Rajasthan. She has 2 children, a daughter who is 8 months old and a son who is 4 years old. Her husband is currently preparing for competitive exams and is aiming to become a professional someday. She has 3 goats in her house, whom she loves a lot.
KhargoshWhen her son started going to school, a whole new world opened up to Lalita Devi. She would see her son’s books every day, and the colorful images in it would always fascinate her. With time, her curiosity grew, and she would always wonder if she could replicate what she saw. One day, she took a piece of paper, and started drawing whatever she could recollect from her memories. As her love for drawing grew, she decided to take her skills to a new level. That is when the idea of designing her own rug came to her mind. While embracing this challenge, she found herself short of confidence, but kept on believing in her skills. Soon, she started imagining the rug as a canvas of her expressions. She started weaving a parrot, and went on to design rabbits and elephants-the things she had seen in her son’s books. She also included floral patterns, which she used to see in her surroundings. She calls her rug ‘Khargosh’-meaning rabbit, the one she saw in the book. Having designed her first original rug, she sees boundless possibilities with ideas that only her mind can create.
