Ships of the Desert— CAMEL

Camel is also know as ships of the desert.

Camel racing is a century old arab sport where children were used as a jockeys.The advantage of using a child over an adult is their low weight and height,which meant the camels could run faster.Many laws have been made but till 2005 children were used as jockeys.Many children suffered injuries such as broken legs and hands from falling off camels,which can run up to 30km per hour.Now instead of a child,camels in UAE are ridden by small robots which are tied into camels by hand.

Many boys were bought from their parents in Pakistan,India Sudan and Bangladesh for as low as US$3.Parents in these countries used to sell their boys to arabs not knowing that these kids are used as jockeys.These children were not fed properly because the owners don’t want them to gain weight,they were given 2 biscuits a day and some water to drink.Few kids don’t know to talk there language nor they know to which country they belong to.UAE was the first country to ban child jockeys in the year 1993.But that was highly ignored until the year 2005.Finally in the year 2005 Dubai and other emirates responded to intense international pressure cleared the camel-tracks of children, replacing them with robot jockeys.The related article is here

Aa Lalu Mamma

Aa Lalu motherhood.It is a wonderful experience of being a mother of two.Have two different memories and has to behave differently with each one of them.One is silent, timid, sombre, calm, innocent,responsible and soft natured and other one is naughty,cranky and much more.Wonder how the elder one survives in this bad world,she learns to climb furniture from her younger sister, who like a P.E. teacher teaches her each step to do.

This time i have been tagged by two lovely ladies IHM and Smitha.The tag is about “what i like best about being about mother”.The tag says i have to write five things I love about being a mother.

The five things i love being a mother is:-

1.Calling me amma,mom,mama,amadu

2.Endless blow of flying kisses she gives me after getting into the school bus every morning

3.Begs me not to cry when i become emotinal, wipes my tears with her tiny hands.

4.They both give me a hug soon after getting up,their eyes are still closed.

5.When i am angry she runs to me before i say anything and says a lolu mama (i love you mama) and all my angry dissolves like a ice cube.

I wanna write more……..

1.Pain of begin operated just vanished after seeing her for the first time.Unshaped head,hairy
face,thin long fingers with long nails,pinkish body wrapped in a cloth and cling ed to me on the bed. When young used to cry a lot for a small cut and now doesn’t mind even if the stitches hurt me.I have taken snaps of her fingers,her legs,her hands,her hair and her face and now i show her this is you, when you were small.She just can’t take out her eyes from those snaps.

2.Motherhood is enjoyed more when by baby gets down from the school bus,hugs and tells me that mama you are looking smart by leaving your hair.And also she gives me compliments i look good in jeans then the Salwars/sarees.

3.You know you are a mother when there is only one piece of cake left,which you have to share with your kids.

4.The sleepless night when she was down with fever.Before kids never missed my sleep,nor got up in between the sleep.But now getting up with slightest movement of hers.She wears anklets on her legs,now i can read the sound of her anklets.I can make out if she is getting up/she is changing her sides/she got down from the bed etc….

5.I have become more responsible and caring then before.Have to be careful in what i am talking,how i am behaving as kids learn from us.

6.My baby tells her father that amma has got lot of house work,today you order biryani and juice for amma,she wont cook today.And everyday morning she says amma you do your work today on holidays i will help you.She just loves to help me.She likes me to bake cake and till the cake is done she doesn’t leave the kitchen.And always tries to lick the batter when i am not there in the kitchen.

7.Used to keep a book in handy to read about the milestones she crossed.Called up mom for very milestone she passed,like her first turn,her first word,her first step etc….And now she sees her little sister crossing those milestones and shouts amma she is crawling,she is walking,she is saying thanku…….

8.Now she is my mom.I don’t know arabic and she learns from the school and she teaches me the letters.I am learning a new language from her.

There is much to write about the both my darlings.I don’t have much expectation nor i want them to be a doctor/engineer/etc ,i only want them to be a good human beings.Sometimes i worry how they will face this bad world alone when they leave our house for good.
I would like Pooja ,ramya and sandhya do this tag,pls let me know when you do it.

btw today she got down from the bus with tears and started crying saying that her teacher didn’t say bye to her:(
