Cows in the Streets
March 8, 2014
Sometimes when Americans get fearful of traveling to India, they wrinkle their noses and say, "There are cows in the streets," as if that should be a reason never to visit this incredible place.
Yes, there are cows in the streets. Many. They are beautiful, peaceful animals that just roam up and down the streets and at night, they collect together in a huddle for comfort, for warmth, for safety.
Walking down the streets and alleyways to morning yoga, we've passed stray dogs, cows and even a couple of donkeys. Unbridled, unleashed, just wandering, peacefully, no bother, sharing life with the humans.
