  • KODHAI
    It has become a fashion to raise cows for their high milk yield. In ancient times, Cows were never reared for profit, Every house would have couple of cows and bulls which they use for agriculture, and the calves are never sent out, The calves are never deprived of milk, people would simply take whatever remaining mlk the calf leaves and Sustain the family. The main purpose of keeping cows was for dung. Now with commericaisation people have gone for HIgh milk yiled cows, Biggest problem with this industry is that the moment the cow looses the milk yiled she is shown door out !. Where she is expected to be abducted by butchers or would feed on garbage and plastic. KODHAI is one such victim of commercialisation of Dairy. She is lovingly adopted by a couple from Singapore who wish to be anynymous. They have named her KODHAI. Another name for Andal(Incarnation of Mahalakshmi )
  • Mallika

  • Namo
    The bull was on the way to slaughter house when our voulunteers alerted us . We tried to persuade the Butcher to handover the bull to us. (Kerala is a state where there is no ban on cow slaughter, as such there is no option to save them in a legal way unless there is a severe cruelty inflicted). In a surprising turn of events our volunteers pooled in money and saved the calf. This is first of such resuce . all the cows we have in Dakshin Vrindavan are saved from Tamilnadu or Karnataka where there are laws banning it. So we sight the laws and save cows and bulls there. But this kind of rescue is unique. Infront of our eyes all we see is a poor calf. nothing matters us than its plight. The calf is been adopted by Dileep Krishnan of Kovilakath Madom. Kovilakath madom tops the lists of donors by its members adopting 5 cows in our herd.
