Sacred Cow ‘Naan’ Hits the Shelves in India

Jeez – and I thought “New Age” was out of control in America. Suggestion: stick with the Nag Champa.

Now Guess What Comes In Packages – Cow Dung Cakes!

[Excerpts]

Dookie cakesNews Post India, Jan 9, 2008–Don’t be surprised to find packaged cow dung cakes sitting pretty with toiletries and groceries at retail stores here.

After cow urine or ‘gau mutra’, packaged cow dung cakes or ‘kanda’ have now hit the market and they are the brainchild of the city-based Gau Sena, which literally translated means ‘cow army’.

The Gau Sena, which has launched the product under the brand Gauvar in Jaipur, claims it has mixed many ingredients in the cow dung cake so that burning it could purify the environment. The cakes would also help keep diseases at bay, the organisation claims….

…Gupta said the product has cow dung, water of the holy Ganges river*, cow urine, rose water, cow milk, items of fire sacrifice – ‘hawan samagri’, rose petals, rice, clove, cardamom, the ayurvedic product guggal, camphor, butter, sawdust of the mango tree, ‘itra’ (essence), extract of tulsi, sandalwood powder and sand from the feet of sacred cows.

*Holy the Ganges may be, but it is well known that the counts of fecal coliform bacteria in the river are 3000 times higher than is considered safe in developed countries. The Ganges is one of the most polluted waterways in the world.
