When I took this photo, I didn’t realize there is something wrong with the cow.  I have been used to watching cows all the time in rural Rajasthan, in Western India. Rajasthan is a very dry state and is the location of the Thar desert, which is India’s largest. When I put it up on Facebook, an American friend of mine commented, “sad!”. It was only then that it struck me that this cow is impoverished! It is lifeless due to the lack of water and green grass. I was so very used to looking at such cows since I was very young, that somewhere subconsciously such a sight got registered as being  normal.

  1. yeah… I can’t really look at it! It makes me feel so sad that I feel like puking! Can’t look at pics like this…

    The only thing that makes me feel a bit better is that at least cows are not slaughtered because of me ’cause I don’t eat them! :)
