Meet Our Maker: Sulekha Ali
‘Arzoo’ is the story of Sulekha Ali, a young Muslim woman who is compelled by circumstances to go live in the Shah Alam refugee camp in Ahmedabad, for six months post Gujarat communal riots of 2002.
There she works as a volunteer and soon discovers emotional wounds that lie buried below the surface. Her interaction at Shah Alam with the children creates a longing within her to heal and nurture. After leaving the camp Sulekha decided to continue with her work and thus Arzoo Education & Activity Centre, synonymous with her own desires, is born.
At Maker Fest, the Arzoo team will be demoing book binding using handmade paper.
