As the kaliyuga is progressing the exploitation of cows is also increasing. We had visited one of the dairy farms to learn about the gobar gas plant. We saw only the cows and no bulls were to be seen. The maid who is working there explained the process followed there. She told that as soon as the calf is born it is taken away even before the mother could see the new born. It is cruel!
If the new born is a male calf the dairy or the farmer immediately leaves them in the street. Some of them get accident and die and some survive eating the garbage and plastic in the street. Generally they are very weak as they are not fed by its mother’s milk. One such calf was left in our temple goshala (without informing, someone just tied the calf in the goshala along with other cows). Devotees took pity and started maintaining it.
The calf was an alien in the goshala, it used to play with other calves. On March 31st, while the calf was running while being chased by other calves, he fell and broke his leg. It was fractured in 6 places. We took him to the nearby hospital. It was very painful and the doctors kept two wooden logs and practically nailed in 3 places cutting across the breadth of the leg. Since the calf stays in the outdoor and due to urination, the wound easily gets septic, so we have to take it to the hospital every 2nd day.
The devotees taking care of goshala painstakingly care for this calf. Lets us pray that the Lord who is lover of cows and brahmanas be pleased with them and award them with pure devotion unto Lord Govinda.
