  1. This terracota thing is such a beauty. I had picked this on my recent chennai trip and unfortunately it didn’t reach in one-piece 🙁
    Regd the holy cow …from my knowledge it is very simple reason …when something is useful to the community, our ancestors gave it a “holy” tag to avoid exploitation/misuse of it.
    Cow gives milk which is daily essential. The dung was used as manure in farms. The dung cakes used as fuel. Cow urine was considered a disinfectant and perhaps has various other benefits. I am sure there is more to usefulness of ‘holy’ cow 🙂

    Anu, Cow gives us milk, Milk gives us ghee, Ghee is used in homams, Homam is done to get rid of bad things in life and attain holiness . So, logically cow becomes holy 🙂
