For the last 20 years I’ve worked as a rug weaver in Panipat.

I work 9 hours a day, 6 days a week. Sometimes a rug with a complex pattern can take an entire day to make.

I feel like a celebrity, a movie star having the Remake team film me in the factory, my home and community. I’ve enjoyed this day and a chance to share my life with the world.

I am so proud that my work has allowed my oldest daughter to be married and my four younger children to go to school, an opportunity I never had.

Every night I listen to them recap what they’ve learned in school. I can’t help but beam with pride when I think about their bright future. I hope they go on to become doctors or engineers.
