Rescuing of our first resident - Balaram
July 30, 2015
A Tharparkar bull calf going to be sold to a butcher, led to the foundation of Dakshin Vrindavan. Our founder, Ashwin Sampatkumaran, on hearing the news, rushed to the farm which had decided to sell the bull calf. On convincing the farm owner about why it is important to protect cows, Ashwin took the bull calf along with him. Not knowing what to do, he took the calf to his home. With the guidance of H.G. Kurma Rupa Dasa, the founder of Care for Cows, and with the help of devotees of cows, he was preparing to take care of the cow. The bull calf, Balaram, was thus the reason for Care for Cows - Dakshin Vrindavan to be formed.
