Sulya: If we serve obediently wealth and name will search and come to us. The young community should not get attracted by the foreign culture of showoff and start loving our Swadeshi culture. Rain water gains purity by the place it falls upon. It is time to let go off the foreign breeds, and benefit by raring indigenous cows. There is no other animal that is as sensitive as the desi cows, our blood pressure can be brought to control just by caressing their bodies, said Padmashri Girish Bharadwaj.
