Puttur, Feb 6: In order to preserve indigenous breeds of cows, the Ramachandrapur Math has proposed to set up the world’s first ‘cow bank’. This was revealed by Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swamiji of the Ramachandrapur Math on Sunday.
Calling it a revolutionary step, the swamiji said that the first phase of the project would include setting up of ‘cow banks’ in all district headquarters of Karnataka.
The basic objective of the ‘cow bank’, he added, was to protect and care for orphaned cows. The ‘cow banks’ will also care stray cows and crossbred cows.
Anyone can keep their cows at the ‘bank’ and any interested person can borrow the cows as loan, which is the unique feature of the proposed project, the swamiji explained. He further added that any persons who take cows from the ‘bank’ needs to follow certain conditions. They cannot sell the borrowed cows for any reason whatsoever and do not have the right to crossbreed their cows. They can return the cows borrowed by them at anytime.
The Ramachandrapur Math, Hosanagar will be the central office of the ‘cow bank’ and Susheela Deshpande from Hubli, the president of the proposed ‘cow bank’.
