This explains much about the role that cows have played in the history of India. Imagine a cow shelter- like a humane society but run by compassionate people without governance, for cows and some of their relatives.

I learned a lot about the relationship between cows and the people of India from this book. It's a very interesting read and perfect for the armchair traveller.

Nothing like the beginning of a book where a new resident in a Bangalore India apartment getting on a elevator with a COW to whet the readers interest. When a ex-pat and her family return to India to live, her interest in the lady who brings them milk brings a lot more than just a friendship, it brings a whole new world of cows and their importance in India. Interesting, funny and a great introduction to the sacred cows of India.
