A cow and calf

A cow and calf drove down our street on Mattu Pongal – the third day (Jan 15) of the Pongal festival celebrated to thank cattle. Each year we find a cow or two drove down our street after the worship or perhaps to or fro from a temple visit since they are celebrated on this day. I guess the cows are walked down from a nearby slum because they could only be seen at those places in the city.

What a nice view of life in your area. It must be a challenge for the person to walk both animals down the street. Enjoy your day, Jeevan.

Hi Jeevan,
We saw many cows in India, but actually not a single one in Chennai. But of course we were only on touristic paths. If you are interested in what we saw in your city, you might want to read it on my blog:

(I don't know if you know the trick to translate entire blog posts from German into English - if not: just copy the link in google translate and enter "German" as the language - and in the second "window": "English"... Then click on the link in the "Englisch-Window"...)
I thank you very much for your blog visit and for your informations. I am sorry that Covid produced such a difficult time for many. I often thought of Vel, a very, very nice taxi driver who lives in Mahabalipuram and who invited us to his house back then. We hope so much that he and his family are fine! I am happy to hear that India is already getting better with the virus!
And I'm also really happy that you are trying to keep your family from littering. Thank you! I believe this is a difficult undertaking - there should be a lot more people like you!
Take care and have a good new week!
Best wishes, Traude

You capture a good photographic object.
So we can all know that in your country there are cows as a complement to the Pongal festival.

Greetings from Indonesia.

Thanks for sharing the shots. As a farm boy long time ago, I watched my dad mile the cows morning and night.
