Meet Carishma, a camel brought to Shirdi in Maharashtra by its ‘owners’ from Madhya Pradesh. Carishma wants me to sit on her so her folks can make some money that will feed her. But I did not and only took her pictures, trying to understand her pains and her life. I bumped into this on April 30, 2019.
Camel rides are fairly common across India, especially along national
highways and eating out places. And holidaymakers dont mind spending a few hundred rupees to ensure their kids and other family members enjoy the rides.
