The cows sleep for one or two hours a day. One Sunday I went to goshala. I saw a bull named Krishna eating two buckets of food in five minutes. Some cows were playing with Krishna. When the big bull Krishna came to me I ran away from there. There was another cow there named Pushpa - we took her blessings. When we were giving leaves to the cows all the cows came to us. And some cows were recovering from sickness. I like cows because they are very cute. Cows are important because they give us pure milk. We should respect cows because they never hurt us.
Rohan, Class 4
I like cows because they are very auspicious. We should serve cows because they are very important to us. For example, they give us milk. Cows are different sizes - some are small and some are medium. They have horns and big udders filled with mild. Cows have two stomachs and they eat plants, leaves and fruits. If you take some grass to feed them they will follow you. Some cows get attached to people. When you brush them they will also follow you. Cows like to play with people and with each other happily, but sometimes they also fight with one another. Cows also get sick. At Kurma Rupa Prabhu's goshala there are many sick cows. Some of them even have broken legs. Krishna likes cows. Krisna likes everyone in the world. Cows give us everything, for example, milk. That is why we should protect them. I like cows very much because they are very beautiful. Krishna Balaram, Class 4 Krishna says in the Vedas to respect the cows. Cows are very important because they give us milk. With that milk we can make sweets. What is more, it gives us a lot of energy. Cows are very nice because they help us in our life. When we went to Kurma Rupa Prabhu’s goshala we saw cows that are sick. Some cows have their legs broken. Some bulls have broken horns. There are also some blind cows. There are so many bulls. There is one big bull – his name is Krishna. He is very strong. He has a big hump and long horns. With these horns bulls can fight. The cows have long tail. At the end of the tail there is some hair. And they have big ears. They also have big eyes they can see properly. They can run very fast with their feet. We should respect the cows because if we disturb the cows Krishna will not be happy. I like cows because Krishna also likes them.
