Indian Cows – Belief, Science and some Patents.

Nov 14, 2019 / Pureesh Kumar

India has never treated Cow as animal. Our Rishis announced – गावो विश्वस्य मातरः or Cow is the mother of World. From ancient ages, all the religious texts in India had underlined the importance of Cows and Cow Products. During armed revolt of 1857 due to presence of Cow fat in Cartridges, the British governors and strategist realized that they have to make Indians believe that Cow is just another animal. They started propagating Cow related ancient beliefs as untrue and blind faith. They opened many abattoirs too.

There are two types of people prevalent in Society today. One who believes on anything told to them with a message that it is written in any ancient scripture or religious book. Intellectuals used to call them having blind faith or “अंध विश्वासी ” .

There is another class of people to whom if told that a specific Shloka in Veda or other ancient texts gives this information about something (like usefulness of Cow products), then they will laugh on it. Without testing or verifying they will reject it. Such Pseudo Intellectuals are now called having blind disbelief or “अंध अविश्वासी “. Relief is that new generation in India has most of the scientific information on their finger tip, thanks to the Internet. Their approach is truly Rationale now. They are neither blind believers or blind disbelievers. For them there are claims needed to be verified. Before proper scientific test and Research, they neither accept nor reject anything. Good news is – This generation is willing to Research on claims before declaring them Facts or Myth.

Ayurveda is full of praise for Panchgavya, i.e. Cow viz Milk, Curd, Ghee, Cow Dung & Cow Urine. Use of Cow Urine and Cow dung on medical treatment usually is out-rightly rejected by Pseudo Intellectuals. They reject them without Research or Test on them. The team of Scientists headed by Dr. BA Golakia, Head of Biotechnology Department in jau (Junagadh Agricultural University) used Gas Chromatography Mass spectrometry (GC-MS) method to analyze Cow Urine and successfully identified more than 752 compounds found in Cow urine having immense medicinal value. A single source of such pharmacy is still not found anywhere else. In 2016 some finding of this research was leaked and got published in Times of India informing presence of 3 to 10 mg of gold in ionic form which is gold salts soluble in water, in 1 litre Cow Urine of Gir Cows. Nowadays when any person says that Milk of Indigenous breeds of Cow has Gold then as usual Pseudo Intellectuals laugh on them without trying to even research it scientifically. Thankfully Rational scientists still treat it as a claim that needs to be scientifically verified. Not to accept or even reject before that. At least in Cow Urine gold too was found in Research done in JAU. We all should wait for their Research to get completed and result to be published. Purpose of Research there, was not to find Gold in Cow Urine but to find everything present in Cow urine so that its medical usefulness can be proven for once and all through replicable scientific ways.

Shri Sunil Mansinghka, Member, Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog shared information about multiple Patents on medical usefulness of Cow Urine and other Cow products that are with GVAK (Gau Vigyan Anusandhan Kendra) Devlapar, Nagpur in collaboration with various National research Institutes with whom they keep doing Research activities. Some of these institutes are – NEERI, IARI, IVRI, VNIT, IICT, Institute of Dermatology, CICR, NBRI etc. Complete details of all these Patents are available on website – http:/
