Karachi: Talented Samreen Solangi, a resident of Sindh, makes copies of archeological artifacts which tourists buy with great interest. Samreen sells them and runs her house.
According to details, Samreen Solangi, a resident of a village near the archeological site of Mohan Jodhpur, makes artefacts out of clay.
Samreen is the eldest of five sisters and runs her household through this art. According to Samreen, she learned this art from her father as a child. Both she and her father work in pottery.
Samreen also imitates the King Priest, the dancing girl and the seals found in the Mohenjo-daro, and sometimes the entire Mohenjo-daro model, which tourists buy hand in hand.
He and his father used to set up stalls near Mohan Jodho, but due to the Karuna lockdown, both father and daughter could not sell anything last year and this year as well.
His business has come to a standstill due to the tourist ban. The roof of Samarin’s house also collapsed in the rains this year and he does not have the money to repair it. Now the family is forced to live in the open.
Samarin has asked the government to provide him with financial assistance until his business is up and running so that he can repair his house.
