Hundreds of working camels arrive and depart every day
Life seems much slower and simpler around the camel men
Only in India
Thousands of camels are working each day as the camel men drive their carts throughout the city.
In this way of life they find many ways to use camels being that they are so inexpensive
and user friendly. Here in Bikaner there are caravans of camels arriving at the market
each morning to haul goods through the city and countryside.
The market is very active as business men are bidding on newly arrived produce and the camel
carts are being loaded and unloaded. Laborers are busy scoping up peanuts among other things
with old pans and buckets to fill up the sacks being loaded on the carts.
There are also a few oxen pulling carts but they can only handle a one ton load whereas a camel can handle a two ton load.
It was always joyful and pleasant around the camel men.
