I am the provider

By 29 June, 2018Uncategorized

For centuries the human race has survived on my dairy products.  For centuries, the kitchen fires have burned with my offerings.

I have toiled, tilled and ploughed the farmer’s fields. I have dragged and pulled his vendor’s carts.

I have spread my dung on the village homes so that they kept warm.

I am fuel.

I am fertilizer.

For centuries my urine has been consumed in religious rituals and also used for medicinal purposes. The much talked about panchagavya is a mixture of my five products: my milk, my curds, my ghee, my urine and my dung.

I am disinfectant.

I am also the beast of burden.
