Her mother was seated on a very quiet camel in a saddle made for her from an armchair, and worked away with her knitting needles. Because it was such a long ride she had to have something to do! They were moving camp, and everything was packed on the camel-train.
Mehera remembered how nice the camels looked moving along in line. Eventually they came to the place in the forest where their servants had erected a very big tent with scalloped trim round it and divisions inside for sitting room and bedrooms. 'Very lovely it was', she said.
Mehera asked me would I be afraid in the forest like that, with wild animals roaring close by. I said I didn't know, perhaps, (but thought later that I really should have said Yes!). Her father was absolutely fearless, and would tell her mother and herself not to be afraid, that he was there to look after them.
