Urgent appeal on saving cows – please read!

With a cow

Following is an email I got from Shri Vijay Parathasarathy. Then I called Erode Shri Karthikeyan and talked to him to understand more….Here are some details….

All donors : Please read the “important note”

Current situation::

Olakudi is an interior village in Tuticorin district. This village is situated around 8kms from Valanadu. They are only 4 kms away from River Thamarabarani. There are 3 villages situated between Olakudi and Thamarabarani. There are only around 100-150 houses here.

 The villagers here revere their Cows as Gods. Around 6 yrs back they had around 2000 native cattle. They take pride in rearing only native cattle and have not allowed hybrid or foreign breeds to enter their village. They reared them not for profit but as a status-symbol.  But for the past 6 yrs due to extreme poverty, lack of water(inspite of being situated close to Thamarabarani) and their inability to do agriculture they are unable to rear their cattle. The numbers have dwindled to around 600. Last year’s drought killed 150 of their cows in the months of February and March. This year, in fear of facing the same situation, they want to sell approximately 350 of their cattle. The muslims from Melapayam (situated 30kms from Olakudi) are ready to buy their cattle for slaughter. The villagers of Olakudi feel they will get income from the sale of their cows and at the same time their cows will face an immediate death instead of starving  to death.

Mr. G.Bala(Mobile: 8870400537) from Palayamkottai received information that these villagers are bargaining with the muslims from Melapayam for the cattle sale. Acting on this information, Mr. G.Bala is currently in Olakudi and has requested the villagers to hold their sale for 10 days starting from 24th Feb 2014. Mr. G.Bala and his team are talking to the villagers, the panchayat head, accessing the situation there are trying to brain-storm as to how these 350 cows can be saved from slaughter. He is working along with Mr. G Karthik of Erode (Mobile – 8148135081). They have currently found buyers for 15 of the 350 cows.

Need of the hour::

1959323_221198824741823_1854890714_nTo save a cow, we need Rs 10,000. There are 300 cows – makes up to 30 lakhs (!!!). Sadly, we can’t save them all. Goal is to buy these cows from individual villagers and give to ghosalas in and around…The team is taking lots of routes – approaching kanchi matam, vaishnava madams, considering forming a ghosala right there etc…while all these are happening (which may take time), we have only 10 days to save them as per my conversation with Karthik. Even if we are able to save 25 cows, it would be great….I am going to talk to Shri Chandramouli of Shivarpanam trust to see if we can some funds out of our 2013 veda/gho rakshana drive to save some. In the meantime, if there are any volunteers who have NOT contributed to our veda/gho rakshana in the past and want to do it now, please consider this as an opportunity….I have given the number of Karthik (see above) and contact him directly and see how you want to help. (Y)our contribution for this cause will be blessed by Mahaperiyava.

How to contribute

Please contact Shri Karthik at 011-91-8148135081. I will talk to him tomorrow and see if he can share the bank account # for those who want to share….

Important Note

Please note that I talked to Karthikeyan about our blog and sincerity of all the readers and the importance of using our contribution in the right way and the need to have proper governance. Karthikeyan agreed to be very careful and he is truthful to the task he has undertaken. He has promised to provide update for all the cows we are saving. In order for him to effectively do his job, please provide your name, email id and the amount transferred to Karthikeyan at karthikeymba@gmail.com.

Karthik is a 27 year old man (!) who is working in a marketing line. He got interest in naatu maadu and started working towards researching about them…He had so far several cows being slaughtered risking his life etc….Recently, with the help of Facebook friends, he conducted a seminar on naatu maadu and nearly 70+ folks from various parts of Tamilnadu attended. In that he talked about the need to save them from being slaughtered…As a result of that, about 15 donors have come forward to save them…Without divine blessing young boys/men won’t be pulled into such an activity of higher causes.We pray Mahaperiyava to bless Karthik & his team and their families with health, wealth etc.

  16. i will contact Mr. Karthik. As recently in Vijayawada we come across on organisation Cow.Org who had started new gosala near vijayawada, who’s main object is to save the Cow.
    i will let you know the position on talking with them. thanks for the information


  18. Very happy to see all our Mahaswamy devotees becoming Maharaja Dileepan in protecting the Nandhinis of Thirunelveli. I sincerely pray that this mission becomes a big one in uniting all the dharmic forces. Very very happy to see the response of many of our devotees contributing for Mahaswamy’s dream of Gho Rakshana in a great way. I pray Mahaswamy’s grace to be paripoornam on their family and bless them with more wealth, health and happiness in life. Today, being Sivaratri and Sravana Vratam, went to Sri Govindan Goshala ( http://www.goseva.net ) and had the bhagyam of having darshan of the 250 cows there. What a sight – will get permission from Sri RKji mama and post the photos of the Viraja Homam that was performed today and also the Sri Rudhram Parayanam that happened there.
    It is only in Gho Rakshana that all the vibhinna vaideeka madhams are uniting.
    I am sure, the Dharmic resurgence in our great Bharatham will lead as a lamp atop a hill for the world to follow.
    Let us all pray for Mahaswamy’s continued guidance and his blessing in disguise for giving us this wonderful opportunity to take part in Gho Samrakshana.
    A great part of this punyam will be for Sri Maheshji, who took pains to collate these information, co-ordinate with Karthik and get this momentum in an unprecedented way in unprecedented deadline. I truely believe its none other than Mahaswamy’s thiruvilayadal that has come through Sri Mahesh Nayanaar.

    Seeking the grace of Mahaswamy,

    Thanks and regards,

    P. Vijay

    Thanks to you for getting us involved in such a noble cause.

  28. Really very sad to hear this and I shall definitely reach Karthik on this. I pray Maha Periyava to have many people come forward and save as many cows possible. Thanks for the info.

  29. We need some of our group friends to assess the ground realty before donating for this cause. Just wanted to understand how this problem is going to be approached but it is golden opportunity to save the main giver of holy ash on maha sivaratri our revered gho matha

  30. By Mahaperiyava’s grace we can save these cows. I’ll spread the word around and will take some myself. Thanks for letting us know.

  31. I will contact Karthik and also Shivaarpanam Chandramouli mama also, Mr Mahesh. Thanks for the info. Regards

  32. It is important to save and protect the native strains of cattle as the milk of the foreign cows do not suit the DNA of Indians and cause health problems including heart troubles.Besides, the male calves of the foreign strains are not suitable to work in Indian conditions and are simply butchered. Many of us are ready to help.. It will help if it is announced to whom we should send our contributions.

  33. you have not given any person to contact….I am personally ready to take about ten of them and save them with all honour…But I do not know who I should contact?

    • Yes, I have given Karthik’s number. Pl check.Thanks you very much for your kind heart. Let Mahaperiyava blessings be with you…

    • I just now spoke to Mr. Bala mentioned in this post on his given mobile number. He said that a team of people are going to come and see whether a gho sala can be instituted for the rest of the 250 cows, as the rest of them have been booked by some good Samaritans to buy it or save it from being sold. He said once the team has decided to finalise, he asked me to call him tomorrow to know the outcome. In that case it will be around 5000 to 7000 Indian rupees to maintain each cow. Also he can provide a trust details where the money needs to be sent to. Hope this information can be of use to the people who are looking forward to save the cows.
      Utthira jaisankar
      Jaya jaya sankara hara hara sankara

      • In Our Team Work hardly ! based on All Your supports ! we are update the all activities all coming sunday ! We are ready to save 350 !
