The Holy Cow !
I have always wondered why the cow is considered sacred in India. In my quest to find the reason, I came across many funny stories on the internet and eventually found that the answer was as simple as “Cow gives us milk, that’s why!” , something that I have been teaching Akshara from day 1.
In south India, the third day of the Pongal celebrations is called “Maatu pongal” when cows are decorated and worshipped. Well, Rajaram would not buy me a real cow and hence I settled with decorating a terracota cow cart with beautiful colours. This work of mine is a dedication to the cutest and selfless herbivore on earth, “the holy cow” 🙂
