The Camel, The Keeper, The Salt-Bush
Kutch is home to the unique Kharai Uunth – a camel species that can swim. Currently, they are looked after by the Fakirani Jats, a migrant community from Sindh, Pakistan, who have made breeding the Kharai camel their sole occupation and chief source of sustenance. For generations together, they have reared the Kharai camel, prevented its extinction and made place for it in their histories, traditions and cultures. This study explores their livelihood from a social and economic lens.
