Camels need no hurry in their hectic daily adventures for life-sustaining and walk in line in an organized way.

Humans are always boasting ourselves that we are the best animals on earth who reign the world and subdue others.

But it is just so shallow of us to think so. We have a lot to improve and a lot to dispel from.

Let’s just look at the normal scenes we witness day in day out: traffic! No big city really gets out of its terrible traffic. This fact does not result singly by the transport system but the awareness of drivers, riders and pedestrians as well.

Let’s just have a small comparison.

Everyday camels have to walk 3 kilometers looking for food, which would normally take them3 hours. This number even adds up if the food is being scarce. They need at least 10 to 20 kilograms of fresh food or 5 to 10 kilograms of dry food per day as a requirement for a healthy life. To put into a calculation, camels dedicate 8 to 12 hours per day to eating.

Yet they need no hurry in their hectic daily adventures for life-sustaining and walk in line in an organized way.

While we, as humans, force ourselves to bind together in everyday traffics. If we have to spare some minutes of sleeping in the morning for going to work earlier each day or just following the line of vehicles instead of trying to fill in any remaining blanks on roads, our traffic will be much better.
