As in all of India, cows blend into the cityscape, grazing on the roadside and bringing the traffic to a standstill. By worshiping cows, Hindus express their gratitude. Cows are people's oldest domestic animals and help to carry heavy loads, provide people with milk, pull the plow, provide fertilizer for the fields and thus ensure a rich harvest. Adoration of cows is representative of compassion for all living beings, for all animals that have no voice to make themselves heard. The protection of the cows shows respect for god's creation and gratitude for nature, which nourishes people and gives them a home.
