Slow Clap: Holy Cow to boost Indian economy and help build healthy India
The National Cow Commission will propose to make it mandatory for fertilizer-producing companies to manufacture 10 per cent bio-fertilizers from cow dung and cow urine
We have moved on from making roti-kapda-makan a national issue to army-cow-money — an evident upgrade. At a time when cow urine is curing breast cancer and patting a cow is normalising blood pressure, the Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog or National Cow Commission has understandably tapped into the holy animal's potential as well. And they have planned their measures keeping long-term effectivity in mind. The Commission plans to boost the economy with nothing other than (drumroll please) cow dung and cow urine.
The National Cow Commission will soon propose to make it mandatory for fertilizer-producing companies like Krishak Bharati Cooperative and Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative to manufacture 10 per cent bio-fertilizers from cow dung and cow urine out of their total annual production. It will also propose incentives for private fertilizer companies for producing bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides from cow dung and cow urine.
The Commission is also concerned about the proper use of cow dung and cow urine. "Production of organic fertilizer would reduce import and save foreign exchange. It (mandatory production of bio-fertilizer) would change the mindset of people as they would find it remunerative enough to do dairy farming and other related activities," Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog Chairman Ballabhbhai Kathiria said. "It will have a positive and long-lasting effect on the economy," he added. What a way to boost the economy and also solve unemployment issues in the country and all from holy excreta.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired the Union Cabinet last February that approved setting up of the National Cow Commission for conservation, protection and development of cows and their progeny — we have moved on from taking care of our own progeny to propagating the cow population — another definite upgrade.
There are numerous gaushalas and pinjrapoles (shelters where aged and sick farm animals are kept) in the country which have enough cows. And raw material would be readily available as long as the cows have good digestion. "Just like milk is collected from villages and brought to cities, cow-dung and cow urine would be collected using (suitable) vehicles. Then it will go to the manufacturing plants," the Kamdhenu Aayog Chairman said. We have made proper use of modern technological advancements — make a special vehicle to transport dung and urine. Kathiria also argued that the proposed move would reduce distress in the farm sector besides giving a major push to organic farming that will create a healthy India.
Looks like Rahul Gandhi really missed a trick. NYAY, really?
