Re: time to give up milk even in India?

 Thanks to Sri Mani for bringing these facts to our attention. It saddens me to read about the cows beings mistreated - this when we know how much Sree Krishna loved and respected these animals. One alternative that we have chosen for the past few months is try alternative "milk" products that offer equivalent amounts of nutrients like soymilk, almond milk, rice milk. etc. I admit that they are definately nowhere close to the taste and fulfillment we get from actual cow milk and perhaps never will be. The consequences of giving up milk on a large scale by the population might be slaughtering of the cows for their meat, skin etc - which even the thought of is unbearable.
