An Uncertain Homecoming
Children who were once camel jockeys are now returning to their home. However, while they were in the land of the oil, they not only lost their childhood but also their language. Most ex-camel jockeys speak Arabic and Urdu, the languages they picked up from their employer and the majority workforce during the time they were employed. Now that the days of being camel jockeys are over, the older boys are more worried about their future. They are fretting over the prospect of making a living in a country where they feel like strangers.
