Why Save Mother Cow​

Degrading status of old cows in Indian society In Indian culture, generally every object, animal has been considered to be worshipable. In Tretayug, where the cow has been accepted as the form of God and the importance of cow has been increased by giving the metaphor of mother. We humans confined the cow to a means by tying it with the shackles of Kaliyug. The importance of a cow ends the moment it becomes unable to milk. In such a way, instead of arranging a cowshed for their stay, we humans do the opposite. Therefore, old cows can be found today chewing in the garbage of any road or street. The old cow, living its life with contaminated garbage, completely disappears from the eyes of the common people. Because she can no longer contribute to the utility of this society. Our society adopting its strict behavior leaves them on the road to live helpless. This thing will be considered absolutely correct, just as a person moves towards old age, in the same way, the health of the living being also goes on deteriorating over time. At a time when they need human warmth and love, we leave them on the roads in the cold and harsh weather conditions. The old cow whining with hunger is ready to eat anything. Swallowing polythene, how many times she must have seen people coming and going helplessly at the road crossing. The care does not reach them, but they has been removed from the road by the words of disdain. Today we need that we should make Govridha Ashrams for old cows. We should give them such an environment where they can develop themselves completely. Today the Indian environment is getting perfection with time and resources, we are forgetting our values, earlier there has been a tradition of cooking cow's bread first in homes. If the new generation takes this tradition forward, then no cow will have to eat contaminated food. We are equipped with all human qualities and keeping this in the forefront, we should take care of the silent creatures. It is written in religious texts "Gau Vishwasya Matar:" which means cow is the mother of the world. Today this saying has remained only as a saying. It will be said as an exaggeration that in the same country where the place is sacred when it is smeared with cow dung, as is the thinking, today in the same country the old cow is forced to fill her stomach with contaminated garbage on the roads. It is also sad that people leave the cow to wander in the markets. They doesn't care about their hunger and thirst. People should take care of cows if they are fond of keeping them, because cow is our mother and protecting cow is our ultimate duty. Article 51 A (g) of our constitution expects the citizens of our country to have compassion towards other living beings. Are we not responsible for their freedom? To what extent the law will save their rights. It should be the duty of the common citizen to come forward and take the responsibility of protecting the old cows. Today, many farmer families have taken up the responsibility of taking care of old cows in many villages considering them useful even today. People there do not do animal husbandry from commercial point of view. The cow becomes a part of the thier family. Wouldn't they need space and money to rear a cow? Can't they also leave old sick, physically weak cows to die alone on the road like us? Today's human has logic for everything that in the last years cow, bull, animal etc. become economically useless. Then what does humanity say? From this earth, from Shakya Muni, Mahatma Buddha to Mahavir and the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi, the creator of modern India, has always spread the message of non-violence, truth, love, compassion and affection to the whole world. Today women of many houses are living their lives with cow dung. Why don't we work for the welfare of the mute old cows by becoming far-sighted today and they can be saved from the situations of dying on the roads. The presence of cows is essential for our environment and we should work in this direction from time to time to improve their condition.
