Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – First, sorry for being behind the eighth ball and could not post timely updates. It is tough to focus on blogging as well as cow rescues that happens every week so obviously something has to lag behind. However, be assured, even if the updates are a bit late they will eventually come.
Four days before Deepavali, I was informed there are 20 native breed cows (a rare breed called Aligarh) that were on the verge of being sold to butcher. Since I was in Bangalore for work, I called the cow owner and asked him to hold on for few days and will meet him in person when I’m back in Chennai. Due to work pressure I could not call him for the next couple of days and in the meanwhile he sold two of his cows to butcher as he was heavily constrained for funds and was also short of labor to maintain the cows. I called him and told him I’m coming next day morning to see the cows and will also pay him an advance, will arrange for funds and pay the remaining shortly.
On the day before Deepavali, I went to his cow shed in Thiruvallur (around 80 kms from my place) in the wee hours where the cows resided. I found that the cows were living in pathetic conditions in soggy floors and broken roof with not much food or water to drink. They are now safely in Sri Gokula Krishna Gosala in Thiruvallur. Rama Rama
