Cows, Sacred in India

Cows, Sacred in IndiaThe fact that cows have remain a sacred animal in India, despite the Mongol and British Empires, the 64 years of the Republic and modern life, amazes everyone. Cows are still loved and respected throughout villages and cities.

In India, the caws symbolize the land, because they give so much for so little. According to Hinduism tradition, it was a cow that breastfed god-child Krishna and the bull is the vehicle of the Lord Shiva. That is why these animals are considered sacred and have had temples built in their honor, and days set aside in the calendar.

Aside the religious symbolism attached to these animals, there is the economic aspect. From time immemorial, bovine cattle has been their means of substance. There are several products derived from milk alone.

You can see them move slowly along avenues, with that peaceful cautious look. It seems none of the hassle and bustle of the city bothers them; all drivers give them the right of way. They have been allowed to rule as masters of time and space. (Juan Blas Rodríguez)
