Holy Cow!

While we do have cows on our roads in Chennai, the numbers in the smaller towns in North India seem to exceed their human population!

Mathura and Vrindavan, not surprisingly, being the towns associated with the cow herd God, Krishna, were over run by cattle. I had to leave my camera in the car when visiting the Janmasthali (the jail house where Lord Krishna is believed to have been born) owing to tight security, and it poured as we got out, so I have no photos to show. But here are a few from Lucknow and Varanasi.

I will be offline for a few days….away to the ‘City of Joy‘.

See you back here soon.

  1. I like the stoic acceptance of street vendors when the Holy Cow decides to sample their wares off the cart. I guess they feel they are blessed, though certainly a lot poorer at the end of the day after Smt Cow has dined.
