Two cows, move over. Cows have right of way.

Cows roam freely in India and I was so excited to see them all over that I must have taken more photos of the bovines than humans. They are such lovely gentle giants.

India considers them sacred, respected, honored, revered and loved. The cow is a symbol of earth, life, provider and wealth. But make no mistake, they are not being worshiped.

There has been a political, religious, economic satires about the “Two Cows” theory. It has been well discussed, argued, dissected, improved and still an ongoing joke.

Since these are Indian cows, the Indian model is total wrong and I changed the word “you worshiped” to “set them free.”

These are compilation of two cows from the internet that I Googled.  I added one based on my experience travelling India.

Canadian: You have two cows. The government takes them both away and sell you back the milk. For some reason, you accept it and watch hockey. Despite that the government take everything you have, the only time you ever riot is over a hockey game.

Hinduism: You have two cows. They are precious to you like they were your mother because of the plentiful blessings they provide, and you cannot bring yourself to harm them in any way. They abuse their privileged position and take naps wherever they please, causing you constant trouble.

Google:  It was predicted that you have two cows. It took 0.37 seconds to determine that you had two cows and that about 2,420,000 results would interest you. But you’ve let Google know that you’ve got two cows.

These are the rest the photos of the cows. You may make up your own two cows theory from these shots.

      • Supposedly, but Uncle Sam is working on lessening our choice’s every day. They like to tax whatever they can’t outlaw. I think Virginia has a Bill up for review to ‘allow’ people the choice to buy raw milk and meat directly from the farmers. I know there’s been controversy, even in the Amish communities. You”d think Uncle Sam would at least leave them alone.

  1. Very clever but when the cows roam free I have to admit, those horns concern me. Not that they would purposely hurt you but I imagine things could get caught in the horns causing quite the dilemma! 🙂

  2. Haha some of the theories are mind blowing! And yes, you can find plenty of cows here. I just have to sit at the balcony and by mid day, see them grazing. 🙂

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
