Camel kisses BBC comedian

Sanjeev Bhaskar, host of the BBC television programme The Kumars at No. 42, featured Rajasthan on his BBC2 travel documentary series “India with Sanjeev Bhaskar“.

During his visit to the state, Mr Bhaskar met the Maharajah of Jodhpur, along with LPPS director Hanwant Singh and Ilse Koehler-Rollefson of LPPS partner the League for Pastoral Peoples and Endogenous Livestock Development. Part 4 of the film series is entitled “A camel called Sanjeev“. The camel was born during Mr Bhaskar’s visit to the herd of Adoji Raika, a respected Rajasthani camel pastoralist, and was named in Mr Bhaskar’s honour.

The picture on the left shows Kotar, Ilse’s camel, greeting Mr Bhaskar. Click on the picture for a closer view (photo courtesy of the BBC).

Hanwant, Ilse, Kotar and camel milk (a product promoted by LPPS) all feature prominently in the documentary.

The programme has been broadcast in Britain and several times in India.
