Kishanganj, October 29: Vishwa Mangal Gou Gram Yatra received grand welcome in Kishanganj by the local people including a large number of Vanvasis. Beginning from Bhagalpur the Yatra reached Kishanganj passing through Navagachhiyan, Katihar and Purnia.
The presence of local Vanvasis at the welcome meeting in Kishanganj impressed all. All the Vanvasis had come with their traditional bows and arrows and they resolved for cow protection. These Vanvasis had reached Kishanganj even one day before the function, as they had to walk kilometers to reach the venue. The Vanvasi women welcomed the gourath with intense sticks and garlands and also washed the feet of the saints.
Addressing the gathering national secretary of the yatra Shri Shankarlal said cow is not a burden for anybody rather she is useful for everyone. He said a total of 108 types of diseases could be cured with cow urine and dung. Highlighting the usefulness of the Indian cow he appealed to the people to stop herding cross-breed cows and herd only the Indian breed of cow. He thanked the Vanvasis for welcoming the yatra with so much enthusiasm and said it is the duty of everyone to protect the cow. He said the govansh is at the verge of extinction today only due to the politics of vote bank. He said if the common man stands with firm resolve even the power hungry politicians and the government would be forced to protect the cow.
Rajrishi Ramnayan Das said the protection of the cow and the village is must in the age of consumerism and materialism as both the village and the cows are highly useful for the human beings. He said if we have to see true Indian culture we must see the villages. He said nothing is more important for village protection and prosperity than the gopalan.
