Eco Mower

Cows are respected as a symbolic spiritual presence in India. They roam the streets freely and are described as “sacred”.

I took this photograph on the Raj Path in Delhi. One of the gardeners there was using the cow to pull the lawn mower, and rewarding the cow with luscious grass clippings. All very eco-friendly and practical!

Just because something is sacred, that doesn’t mean it can’t also be useful! Make the most of your sacred cows…

    We were taught in Social Studies classes in India that the reason that cows became “sacred” was because they were so useful. Plow fields, produce milk and the like. Too valuable to eat… I’m sure there is some truth to that.
