Re: time to give up milk even in India?

I thank Sri Mani for showcasing this cruelty.
Traditionally Vaishnavaite families living in villages
used to maintain cows in order to procure milk from
them directly. I  vividly remember my family treating
the cows in our backyard as one of our own family
members treating them with utmost love and attention.
Infact, I still remember the day when our beloved cow
died !!eventhough it was about 13 years back. It
certainly pains some one like me who was raised to
treat cows as if one of our own to be exposed to the
facts.
