Expo conducted by Kerala Livestock Development Board
July 31, 2015
On October 4th 2014, we got a call from KERALA LIVESTOCK DEVELOPMENT BOARD to our gaushala. The officer requested the presence of our cows to the expo conducted by them. We were quite apprehensive in the beginning and refused to the wishes of the govt. We bluntly refused the proposal. But frequent calls from the govt gave us a second thought. . Our Guide Kurma Rupa Dasa and Wellwisher Nishant Vashist were of the opinion that this opportunity should be used as a stage for preaching the glories of the cows. We just did that. Our volunterrs decided to the cows in a truck to the expo ground which was just 4 km from our gaushala.On first two days of the fest. Balaram,Nandini and Bahula were sent to the stall allotted to us in the expo. Next day they were joined by Padma, Lakshmi, Adhira, Rangasri and Shyamasundar. A huge stall was allotted to us. we put up posters and banners regarding the glories of the cows. We put up banners which raised voice against cow slaughter. Many visitors thronged in to the stall and we preached to them the importance of cow protection. Gausevak Ashiwin Mohan and many others took turns and preached in the stall. Many of them asked if we could sell our cows. Our reply was prompt "cows are not object of trade"..............................................
This preaching of Gaumatha was first of this kind in kerala and Wemust say it was a huge success. Our cows were "STATE GUESTS" and were given ample fodder by the govt of kerala. Our prayers are only that the state should take blessing of the cows and ban cow slaughter in the "gods own country".
