Pee for Cow, a sip of go

Drink a drop of cow

Drink a drop of cow

Close encounters with the cow’s behind?

No, it’s not a Spielberg flick. Nor is it Weird Al Yankovic’s take on one. It’s how we’ll end up slaking our thirst if the saffron pundits of pee have their way.

Enough bullshit, er… cow piss.

Rumour is rife that the Cow Protection Department of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, which so kindly turns in every stray bovine otherwise destined for the abbatoir to the goshala, is working on a magic potion that, by Toutatis, will make us more invincible than the Gauls. The raw material for that elixir comes from the bladder of the cow. Or go, as the vernacular name for this cud-munching creature goes.

Now, cow urine (go-moothram or go-jal in Hindi/Sanskrit) is an ingredient (in trace quantities) in some Ayurvedic remedies, and it is also an excellent weedicide. But actually swilling the stuff? Eesh!

The Times Online has the whole story. Go for it!
