The Hungry, Hungry Cow

Cows in Varanasi are very common. It’s more common than running into a Zubat when you’re playing Pokemon and are exploring a cave. The problem is, there are very few naturally-occuring plants that can feed the gentle giants. So as common as it is to see a cow walking around, it’s almost as common to see the cow sniffing and licking its way through trash to find whatever food scraps it can. Some people feed the cows roti (bread), and even some feed them subzi (vegetables). Our leftovers from the night before happened to be a perfect nighttime snack for this little fellow.
