Chapter 1 It has not rained for two years so Shabanus family starts to pack for Dingarh because there is not enough water to survive much longer Phulan is to be married to Hamir and Shabanu is to be married to Murad Hamirs brother That night while they are sleeping the rain comes and they now have water to survive until the wedding when they will go to town The winter sky is hazed with dust There has been no rain in nearly two years and the heat of the Cholistan Desert is as wicked as if it were summer Staples 2 Chapter 2 Shabanu finds a female camel that is having a baby but the mother is dying because the baby camel is stuck Shabanu remembers when someone was having a baby that someone would lay on the pregnant womans stomach and try to get the baby to pop out Shabanu tries this and tries and tries and finally gets the camel to have the baby Then the mother camel dies and Dadi is angry because that camel was to be part of Phulans dowry Shabanu names the camel Mithoo Shabanu takes care of Mithoo and now she feels like Mithoo is her camel None of the other female camels would let Mithoo nurse so they had to hand feed him A feed Mithoo fast enough with just putting milk on their fingers and letting him lick it off so they would stick their hand in his mouth and pour milk down their arm into his mouth But after a while even that is not enough to feed him so they get a goat skin fill it full of milk and hang it from a tree so he can nurse A memory takes shape in my mind of fetching boiled water to a room with moans and soft cries slipping like ghosts through the shuttered windows of Mama
