Santosh is a 28 year old weaver from Thikariya, Rajasthan. She has 1 daughter and 2 sons in school, and her husband is a farmer spending his days in the fields. They have a nice little routine at home, where the take the meals together, and then discuss on various topics from the pond in the village to the neighbors toy. She likes this routine because it makes her feel she has a sense of purpose being an active member of the home, unlike many of the women nearby.
Sitara
‘Sitara’ means the stars, and Santosh travels back into her childhood with this Manchaha. She loved to see the stars almost every day as a young child, persisting even when her mother used to scold her to get back to bed. Her favourite chocolate was also called Chand Sitara, that she used to buy without fail every time her Mum sent her to buy groceries. The stars are her guiding light in tough times and she draws stars on her walls as a mark of good luck for her children. She shares, “I don’t know how I was the only one in my village that loved stars the way I did, I’ve heard people in cities want to see it but don’t even get the chance. My rug is for everyone that loves the stars and wants them to be a part of their life.”
