Were the headlines in almost all the newspaper across the country that boggled the minds of Indians especially in Gujarat. People who everyday witnessed many farmers in villages selling their cows to rich businessman in cities were wonderstruck at what the report claimed. They could never imagine that even the cow’s urine and dung too can be used to generate income that would help to self sustain the dry cows and the farmer’s’ household too!!

Madhav Ojha living in the foothills of Girnaar Parvat in Gujarat was a simple hard working farmer. He was the proud owner of three Gir Cows, a pair of handsome Gir Bulls; Raam and Lakshaman and beautiful Nandini. He was pretty happy and satisfied in his life with a small piece of land on which he grew some vegetable and little millet. His good wife would follow the footsteps of her husband and was completely devoted to gauseva. The household which was once full of milk, curds and butter was now struggling to even maintain their beloved cattle as Nandini had become too old to give milk. Now with no milk the basic daily family maintenance was getting difficult.

But Madhav was strictly against selling his beloved Nandani, Raam and Lakshman. Daily expenses & maintenance disturbed him. Though he loved his cattle and his family too but could not find a way to escape hard reality which was making his life difficult everyday.

Daevan, Madhav’s 20 year old son tried convincing his father about making compost manure & other medical and cosmetic products from dung and urine of their cows. But Madhav was reluctant to accept the fact and therefore he asked Davean to forget all euphoria created by the news papers.

Cow Dung Log, Pot & Lamp

However, convinced with whatever he thought and planned to do would ultimately bring reward to the family Davaen stealthily started collecting the cow dung and urine of the cows produced in his own household and began with preparing the compost in the corner of the land that they possessed. He started with small scale production and did all the packing of the compost prepared by him with his own hands.

 

Cow Dung & Cow Urine Based Fertilizer

Then he went to the nearby towns; to market with his produce to the nurseries & agriculture melas. To his own and Madhav’s surprise the endeavor taken by Davaen bore fruits and soon he started getting orders to supply the excellent compost available at their doorstep in quite less time. This practice addressed at least to daily struggle of maintaining the cows in the household.

Now finding a new way with new thought he sent Davaen to get trained at academy where the youth were taught to produce toiletries, medicines, dhoop, wall plaster, natural bricks, mosquito coil based on cow dung & cow urine etc on commercial scale. Devan learnt the manufacturing process of various products, basic marketing skills & the most important legal-regulatory details required. He was completely convinced now that this new enterprise would not in any way harm his beloved cows and deter him away from the path of his, “Living with Principles”.

Madhav & Davaen to make their dream come true, daily for almost a month roamed in the markets around their village to understand what type of products would have demand as well as ready buyers. As days passed by they slowly gathered information on some of the cow based products which had good demand & regular buyers. They identified there were good Organic farms around. Luckily they discovered few ayurvedic therapy centres in the towns which were practising using cow based products for treatment of various ailments.

Soon Madhav and Davaen set up a small shed in their land & started making cow based products.

They ensured they practised the best manufacturing process learnt at the academy and gradually developed their marketing skills. Step by step they started to produce in small quantities and supplied products around the village & market place. As they say ‘ Effort & Focus’ always gets its due reward, their products found good acceptance with the buyers and slowly the demand started to pour in from new towns & villages.

After 7 years of hard work & focus, their products are now available in almost all the key towns around their village with regular sales. Now they have a beautiful self reliant Gaudham where cows & bulls are taken care as per ancient practise. Herds enjoy comfort & health. They proved even from cow dung & cow urine one can generate regular revenue. The success story of Madhav and Davaen has become a favorite talk time of villagers who are inspired and would want to engage themselves likewise in order to conserve, protect and maintain their beloved cows.

Before we start our journey, let’s together travel few hundred years back, to the birthplace of Gir cow & listen to the tribes who were the original Gir cow professional breeders. The tribes of Gujarat nurtured & developed the breed, let’s gather some ancient wisdom & practices from the folklore.

Maldharis are known as men with LION HEART, because most probably only they can withstand the powerful sight of Gir lions in the close distance & share the homeland.

Maldhari literally means ‘Owner of animal stock’. Maldharis are brave nomadic tribal community who have been staying in the GIR FOREST along with the majestic Asiatic Gir lions & have taken care of Gir cows since ages. They are humble tribal people who have mastered the art of cow care in all simplicity & treat lions as pets.

Talk to the Maldhari man, you will see him pride his big pronounced moustache; with a sparkle in his eyes & his voice shall echo beautiful folklore stories about Gir cows.

GIR COW  GAUPALAN ANCIENT PRACTICES!

“In earlier days, Maldhari roamed the gir forest along with gir cows. Being nomads we moved in search of pasture to pasture. We attended to cows open grazing on the banni grasslands in early morning around 4 a.m. onwards. Gir cows were used to the routine routes & practices. They enjoyed the lush green grasses, leaves, tree fodders, herbs-shrubs of the forest land. The calves jumped & moved alongside their mother cows. There was feeling of togetherness, happiness & comfort.                                          

 Our mighty Bulls gave confidence to the herd in the wild forest. Bulls & their natural procreation was nature’s answer to existence. Breeding happened under the sunshine naturally. Herds selected the best Bull breed by the LAW OF NATURE…….

‘DOMINANCE & FITNESS’

It was the law of nature, the bulls which established dominance among other bulls became the leader & created clear hierarchy among the bulls & cows. Thus natural breeding was restored. We had mastered our art of breed selection based on our observation & experiences since ages.

During scorching afternoons, we relaxed & slept leaning to gir cows in the grasslands under the tree shade. We played along with the herd, made sounds & noises of birds, animals we were exposed to Cows responded with curiosity, affection, sometimes never bothered about our pranks. Sometimes we just drank the rich gir cow milk in the grasslands just by sliding our mouth under her udder. After grazing time, we used to return to our ‘Wadahs’; natural enclosures by the ‘Gau-dhuli‘ time.

Our family members used to look forward to the Gau-dhuli as many times we carried back Wild honey, Forest flowers, Wild fruits, Just born calves & many times some interesting stories to share. By early evening we used to have our dinner &  sleep in our simple small mud houses-Wadahs.

LATE EVENING & NIGHT was the time for our LION KING, we respected each other’s existence & space.”

‘SHIVA  LINGAM’ SILVER RING – 

FOLK STORY

“In olden days, most of Maldhari used to wear Silver finger rings with ‘Shiva Lingam design’ on their milking hands. The belief was, when we milked, the milk spilled over Shiva Lingam ring  &  we considered it as our humble offering of milk abhishekam to lord shivji”.

These words make me think  & question about today’s complicated rituals. It made me realise ‘Simplicity’ in thinking & action is the best way of living. The above words clearly demonstrate Maldhari lived, celebrated & worshipped ‘gifted life’ in all simplicity & pure humbleness.

Various stories make many rub their eyes, feel the miracle stories as one travels across the region. Gir Cow World is truly magical. If you want to hear to some magical folklore, travel to the earthy tracts around the gir villages, you shall get to hear them in plenty for years to recall, wonder & feel. Gir Cow stories touch one & all …….a beautiful Leela of Krishna……..

Maldhari celebrates Krishna Janmashtami & their marriages are mostly held around the same time.
