sacred cattle

Cows are sacred in India. They live everywhere including in the urban areas of Delhi. They range from well fed to emancipated. Sad to see but they are a proud component of Indian culture that is protected while annoying to many at times. However most Indians do feed the cows as it brings good luck to those that care for animals.
