My Camel Story and World Camel Day (22 June)
It is my own camel story when I was sick and unable to walk or even move happily. Camel has been part and parcel of my life. Seeing camel caravans, moving Afghan nomads and salts traders made a strong picture of a camel in my mind. A decade earlier severe arthritis (Rheumatoid Arthritis) almost killed me and I was unable to move from the bed. An old wise man advised me to move to the camel breeding area and take fresh camel milk regularly. I started my new life while obeying the advice and reached the Suleiman Mountainous Region of Balochistan (the camel heartland). I lived with the camel people, enjoyed their company, learned a lot about camels, and took camel milk regularly. I established a viewpoint that camel milk is a natural pharmacy not just white fluid milk. I recovered soon and in a short time and started climbing mountains.
