Indigenous Cow (A sad story From A Glorious Past to Near Extinction)

Indigenous cow, road,
The worst thing in India is that people are very less aware of many facts and reality. For instance, Indigenous cows are on the verge of extinction; but hardly people know this fact. We Indians are emotionally attached to Cow and we find its reference in many religious books.

We hear so much hue and cry in media about respect of cow, saving cows from slaughter and making more Gaushalas (Cow Homes); however, in reality we find many of them in bad condition wondering here and there for survival. Indigenous cows give much less milk as compared to Foreign cows or Buffalo; therefore, people are leaving Indigenous cows. Just construction of Cow homes (Gaushalas) doesn't provide any solution and we need big changes.

Cows were very dear to the Hindu God Krishna and we all must have heard many stories of him involving cows. A Cow is referred as Kamdhenu, meaning giver of plenty of essential things. In India, it is believed that everything coming from a Cow is pure and beneficial; and the same is true for Cow dung and urine. 

In my native village in Himachal, we still clean the floor with cow dung to make it pure for Puja or Havan. For common Indians, Cow is something which is deeply associated with their soul. Earlier, It was common to find a cow in every single Indian home because of so many things we can get from the cow.

However, today these indigenous cows are going close to extinction because of changing lifestyle of people and demand for foreign cows or buffalo because of their capacity to give more milk. Today, in every part of India, we can easily buy milk; therefore, many people don't see it wise to have cows for the milk.

In the cities where 50% of Indian population lives the numbers of cows per house old are negligible because here people live a busy life; therefore, they have no time to take care of cows. Second, there is a shortage of space and cow food in cities. Though, the situation is not much better in the villages too, where people also prefer to buy milk than have cows.

Those who can afford cows, they opt for foregin cows (Jersey cows) or Buffalo because of higher milk yield. Indian government started cross breeding Indigenous cows with foregin bulls in the early 60s to increase milk production blindly which pulled down Indigenous cows close to extinction. Today, we hardly find pure indigenous cows except in some remote locations or on Indian roads.

There are studies which suggest that milk from indigenous cows is much healthier than the milk from a foreign breed of cows. Indigenous cows have high quality A2 Aelle gene that is responsible for production of healthier milk. Moreover, Indigenous cows become less ill as compared to a foregin breed of cows and they require less medication.
Indian cow, indigenous,

Today, we see a race to increase milk production by compromising health and Indian values. We have a plenty of milk, but we don't know how healthy it is? We need to encourage people to opt Indigenous Cows some of which even give high quantity of milk than foreign cows.

The most of the varieties of cows we have today are of result of mixing of gene of foreign cows with Indigenous cows or they are imported from foreign countries. All these foreigns cows require more care and they become ill quite often because they come from cold weather. Due to high use of medicines in foreign cows, we get a milk which is poisoned in some way.

On the other hand, we can get healthy milk from indigenous cows without the need of medicines. An indigenous Gir cow (pure gene) made a world record in Brazil for highest yield of milk in a year. In India, we are still blindly moving behind foreign cows breeds while ignoring the high potential stored in indigenous cows.

I hope that the Indian cows will again one day find their right place in Indian society and we will value more healthier milk than the high quantity of milk. The Indian government can work in this direction to save indigenous cows and thus saving Indian glory.

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is opposite of general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is main point of many talks and at many places where age of girl is more than boy, then this example is given.


Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitab Bachan who has married Jaya Bachan much shorter …

Life is very short so live it fully

The saddest part of the life of many people is that they die before realizing that life is very short and for many things, they will not get a second chance. Life passes very fast and no one knows for sure that how much time he or she has got with them. Generally, no one tells this secret to us because they themselves don't know. Death comes so fast that most of us are unaware of it. When a child is born then he doesn't bothered about death because of his limited intelligence. When he becomes adult, he feels that he has the whole life in front of him. 

He chooses a carrier and starts working hard to achieve goals of his life. Soon, he becomes so busy in all this that he doesn't get time to realize that life is fast moving out of his hands. Only on the deathbed, he gets few seconds to think about the biggest mistake of his life. I am not suggesting you that you should not work hard or choose a carrier. I am only suggesting you be aware of the life going out of your hands. Wh…

Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.


It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…
