Omg. The cows-on-streets issue is actually very sad and there’s a story behind it.
Cows are sacred in India and cannot be killed (legend has it they helped feed the newborn human babies with their milk when their mothers couldn’t due to breast disease, etc.).
Also cows are not good for milking during gestation and for some time afterwards, so their owners have no use for them and rather than keep them for pets just let them loose on the street. These are actually stray cows. Sadly, they get so drugged by exhaust fumes that they become addicted and just stay by the roadside 🥺
There are cow shelters where they could be kept, restored and probably sold to farmers later. Our guide’s grandfather started one such shelter on his unused farmland.

So how would you describe your last visit to himachal
Me: "I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of
scenery-air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy"
The sweetest thing was to being in a strange place of familier people with their own kind of simplicity ,how can anyone be so graceful with their elegent demeanour, hospitality and amazing attitude towards life.
manali wasiyon how can you be so slick,
And the hardest thing was knowing the treacherous-ness of leaving the place and rushing back to the busy life and the commemoration of the lowkey memories i still have in my heart.
We all are travellers, Some of Places, Some of hearts and Some of memories🌼~ word
