    1. I hope you will find the book and will learn more about the incredible camels. Camel is a multipurpose animal and all rounder to cope the difficult climatic calamities.


  2. Dr. Raziq I can see why you are so successful! Your response, instant, and lovely is much appreciated. Although I wrote my blog, usually at night, I wasn’t well and I have been for six weeks in the hospital. I am now back home and I will order the book today. Than you for your kind comments. You are a great man!
