فکرونه چی خوبونه شی

ځینې خوبونه داسی وی چي پرته له عمومي فکر نه راځی خو زېاتره خوبونه ستا د فکر عکس وی.

ځاڼګی

براي ما خوب لیدۍ چي بیخی ډیری ځاڼي په سهیلو سهیلو باندی راروانی وي. او بیا په اسمان کښ تَک تور دُوګ را پیدا سی. دا دوګ بیا د جالیانو شکل ومومی او د ځاڼګو شاوخوا را تاوُ سی. بیا دا ځاڼګي سوکه سوکه په جالیو کښ بندیږي اوُ لاندی را لویږي.

زه ور منډه کړم او د یو ځاڼګی د نیولو هڅه کوم. چی یو کس نا ببره را وغورځی او زما له لاسه ځاڼګی و کاږي. زه ډیری زارئ ورته وکړم چی ماته یی راکړه خو هغه زالم یی نه راکوی. زه أخر د روپیو لالچ ورکړم. او بیا هغه پیسی واخلی او ځاڼګی ماته راکړی. ځاڼګی بیخی ډیره ښایسته او اصیله وی او ما سره ډیر ګرانئ کوی. اوس زه بیخی ډیر خوشحاله یم.

هغه سړئ ماته یاي که زه نوری ځاڼی وغواړم نو هغه یی راکولاي سی. زه خوشحاله شم او ورته یایم سی ټولی ځاڼګی ماته راکه نو زه روپئ درکوم. زه غواړم سی ټولی آزادی کړم.

هغه ما ځان سره یو خوني ته بوزی. هلته بیخی ډیری ځاڼګی وی. خو هغه یی ګړدی حلالی کړی او صفا کړی وی. او یو غټه کوټه یی ځینی جوړه کړی وی. زه ډیر زیات حیران او پریشانه سم او په خواشینی کښ ورته و یایم سی زه نو دا مړي ځاڼګی څه کوم.

زه له ډیری خواشینئ آسمان ته وګورم. هغه له توره ګړځه ډک وی. او خال خال یوه یوه ځاڼګی روانه وی. سهیلونه ختم سوی وی. زه له ډیره غمه پُر مزکه را پریوزم او ناره کړم چی “خُدایه مرګ را وله ما بوزه”.

او بیا زه را ویښ سم.

Homemade Butter from Camel Milk

Making yogurt from camel milk is a challenge and so is the separation of butterfat. After a lengthy effort and trying different modules, ultimately we succeeded to make yogurt, separated butter, got whey (Shlombey, شلومبئ).

Whey made from camel milk

Shlombey is darling drink of the Pashtun Afghan people in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is also called as Pashtun’s wine. In subcontinent, it is called Lassi. It is made from the yogurt while separating the butterfat and adding water. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/215639450_Characterization_and_significance_of_Raigi_camel_a_livestock_breed_of_the_Pashtoon_pastoral_people_in_Afghanistan_and_Pakistan

Whey (Shlombey) made from camel milk

Soon, we will be able to have Qurooth (dried hard cheese) from Shlombey. This Qurooth is made with the method of Kararra (کراڑہ، کراړ‎ہ)۔

Butterfat made from camel milk

The methodology is still confidential. We made it at home after a longer efforts. We used traditional method to make it possible. Later, I shall share the methodology, once it is repeated many times with the same results.

I call this achievement as the camel milk revolution.

Compost Produced from Camels’ Manure

The compost is blackish in color, well rottened and odorless. It is a boit watery (high moisture content) but still very good quality. I’m still looking for a research fellow to analyse it chemically and publish the results.

This composed was prepared with a dump of 9 month, still is more dump. We shall open time to time and analyse it for its potential farm agent.

And lastly, The Camels — 5 Days Ago ..

. . The Dromedary Camel is an ‘Old World Camel’. It is estimated that the dromedary camel has been domesticated for perhaps 6000 years and has shaped the civilization of the entire world. . . Camels are very specialized animals. Their famous humps are stores not of water, but of fat, and can sustain them without […]

The Camel Reaches to the Next Level

We all know that camel is very important animal, especially the driest parts of the globe, ranging from a food security animal to packing, accessibility to heritage and sport to a hobby animal.

Camel is making its space in other regions and continents both as a dairy animal (Holland, Germany, Australia, and the US) and racing animal (Australia and France), making fate for thousands of people. https://www.arabnews.com/node/1555461/offbeat

International Camel Racing Federation (ICRF)

In my point of view, the establishment of the International Camel Racing Federation is a new level of the camel development. The general assembly of the federation was presided by his highness, Prince Abdul Aziz bin Turki Al-Faisal on 13 September, 2019 in Taif. The ICRF has regional branches and member states.

The establishment of the ICRF will bring new laurels to the camel world. It is a great door for the camel development and conservation of this precious and unique creature. 

The representative of the 42 countries’ camel racing clubs participated. The federation is hopeful to reach the number of the member countries up to 69.

Before this event, the United Arab Emirates hosted the first meeting of its kind of the Asian Camel Racing Federation in AlWathba, Abu Dhabi. https://camel4all.blog/2019/07/03/asian-camel-racing-federation-establishes-in-abu-dhabi-uae/

The Details will be available soon through a formal press release. I share some of the important shots of the event. 

Some Glimpses from Taif with the Friends

The Ancient Trees Heritage of Borai ~ Arya Warsha

Trees are very important, that we all know. They are important because of many reasons, i.e. shade, fruits, feed for animals, fixing atmospheric carbon & producing oxygen, fixing land, purifying/halting winds, providing habitats to insects, birds, reptiles and other animals, scenic attraction, herbal value, building material and anymore.

Old Trees Heritage
Trees are very important from many angles. Fixing atmospheric carbon, producing oxygen, provision of shadow, producing fruits/fodders for human and animals both can be the few characteristics of the tree but there are many more apparent and hidden purposes of the trees.

Borai is an ancient traditional grazing and farming land, an offshoot of the historical Arya Warsha (the grazing lands). http://livestockscience.in/wp-content/uploads/2011/00_slutversion_after_revision_av_Raigi_camel_till_J_Livestock_science.pdf

The trees are a precious heritage and social treasures. We have great affection with the trees, especially the ancient trees. Our elders were used to sit under these trees making Jirga (Pashtun traditional jury) and other social event. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jirga

Trees are the fixed tents of the people to sit under and take refuge from scorching sunshine and rains. This tree is an old mulberry tree. Once, our village people were used to feed the mulberry leaves to the silkworms. I remember that golden time.

This is an ancient tree, Mulberry. The trees is almost 300 years. The elders people told that the tree is always harmed by thunder storms, which burns the trunk. The tree is hard and resilient.

Trees are the sign of life and health of mother earth. Unfortunately the human activities are adversely affecting the health of the mother earth. These trees are at the bank of the Karez (traditional water channel), which are drying because of the over exploitation/mining of the water and the overall climate change calamities. We need to save these trees. I met to the many owners/community of the trees to aware them about the importance and to think about the ways to conserve. They are earth loving people and they are ready to save each ancient tree.
