Mar 03′ 21-An Year Ago: Remembering the Colossal Rescue Operation @ Melmalayanur Cattle Market

கறவை நின்ற மாடுகளை அடிமாட்டுக்காக விற்காமல் ஜீவிய காலம்வரை அவற்றைக் காப்பாற்ற வழி செய்ய வேண்டியதும் நம் ஒவ்வொருவருக்கும் உள்ள கடமை – தாயாருக்குச் செய்ய வேண்டிய கடமைக்கு ஸமதையான கடமை. பகவத் ஸ்ருஷ்டியிலேயே தன் கன்றுக்கு வேண்டியதைவிட உபரியாக மற்றவர்களுக்கென்றும் பாலைச் சுரக்கிற பசு நமக்கெல்லாம் தாயார்தான். – ஜகத்குரு ஸ்ரீ சந்திரசேகரேந்திர சரஸ்வதி ஸ்வாமிகள்

To preserve and maintain the unyielding cows as long as they are alive without sending them to slaughter houses is a predominant duty for each one of us – a duty equivalent to what we owe towards our own mother. Designed in the creation of God Himself, the cow which secretes more milk than what is needed by its calf thereby feeding all of us is certainly a mother to us. – Jagadguu Chandrasekharendra Saraswathy Swamigal

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara,

Time flies and flies very fast….I cannot believe a year has passed away since we did one of the biggest cow rescue operations in the history of  Tamizh Nadu (probably even Bharatham) where we rescued 275 cows in one go from Avalurpettai (Melmalayanur) cattle market on Mar 03′ 21, see HERE. The local person who played his part in the rescue operation fondly remembered the historic moment and called me a couple of days back regarding the anniversary. He was pretty emotional and said that was one of the greatest moments of his life too and asked if there is any possibility of history repeating itself. Given the challenges we have with our ongoing cow rescue efforts/rehabilitation and a Gosala that has to sustain, I told him I don’t see that happening in the foreseeable future, but told him let’s save a few whatever we can possible. By Periyava’s grace we could save 17 cows/calves/rishabams from the Melmalayanur cattle market yesterday (same March 3) that were bound for Kerala slaughterhouse. Thank you all for your continued support in our cow rescue efforts and supporting our Goshala operations. Few pics below.
