Bye, bye, Motabhai!

2013by Kala Sambasivan

Pavan, an over-worked camel in the city of Ahmedabad, India, hates his job. He often dreams of being a racing camel in Dubai. But hitched to a heavy vegetable cart and with his owner Motabhai around, how is this possible? One day, Pavan finds a way to escape with a little help from some kind-hearted children. He makes a mad dash through the city along with Bijilee, a dhobi's donkey whom he befriends on the way. Can you imagine the riot that this pair causes in the narrow, bustling streets of old Ahmedabad, as they race past its historic monuments, with Motabhai, an auto-driver, a policeman and a washerwoman hot on their trail?
