Camera Critters -Cows of Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, February 18, 2012

Cows are sacred animals here in India and they freely wander the streets,
in the midst of all the other traffic, which ranges from cars, trucks, buses,
auto rickshaws, bicycle rickshaws, bicycles, carts pushed by men and women,
elephants, and camels.  There may be others but those are the modes of
transportation that quickly come to mind.

Most of the cows look very healthy though, Lala, my taxi driver and friend,
tells many belong to no one.  They forage through garbage piles and, often,
people do leave food for them.

MacDonald's here in India offers no beef hamburgers.  I had a chicken
maharajah when I ate there!


  1. Yes, cows are sacred to Hindus. They are such gentle animals but can be quite a nuisance while driving. They won't budge no matter how much one honks.

  2. Of course I knew cows are sacred in India, but I never thought that even MacDonald's would respect that! That was so funny and I love the photos.

  3. Hello, RNSANE.
