I have enclosed the photos from Karthikeyan’s ghosala in Erode and some photos from Bala (not in specific order)…
Mahaperiyava had said that just feeding a cow with agathi keerai or a handful of grass is just a great good deed. We have also read several incident where Periyava got upset when someone vacated the cows from the shed to make room for Periyava and made the cow to stand in the hot sun. He immediately asked them to provide shelter for the cows. Having said all these, it is my responsibility to point you all to what our shastra says (based on whatever little I know). Since all the fund is pooled together, it is very hard to identify which cows are associated with your contribution.
Karthikeyan is requesting all of you to visit his place to personally see the ghosala, how it is maintained and willing to answer all your question…Likewise, Bala is willing to take you to places where cows have been adopted; answer your calls etc. Please feel free to be engaged in this process. I understand that some of you got frustrated with lack of proper response earlier. I talked to both Bala & Karthikeyan and asked them to be more responsible. Going forward, they will respond to all of you in a timely manner.
I have enclosed one photo from Erode where the slaughterhouse hit the cow on its head with the hammer and you can see the mark on its head. Karthikeyan could not resist rescuing and he did that. If we were there in his shoes we would have said “it is all its prarabtham” and walked away! That is the difference between us and them. So please show enough respect to these selfless souls.
Please go through the accounts and feel free to ask any questions you might have….
Following are the photos from Erode ghosala…Bala is going to send some more photos from Olakudi..will update this same post once i get them…
The following cow died after it had some health issue. Bala conducted all puja as per the practice – it was very painful to watch these photos…Also I have attached one more photo when a cow broke its leg while transporting to a different place – now it is getting treatment…
