Active, interesting, fibreglass

Vimalanand Prabhu writes in:
If you have ever been to [the] IIT Powai campus, one things you may notice is that there are many stray cows. These cows are not domesticated, but "junglee" (wild). There are enough shrubs for them to feed on their own. These cows are not fat but quite skinny, probably because they are quite active.

Rumor has it that when the owner of the Powai land handed it over to the IIT, he requested that cows never be moved from the campus.
Meanwhile, the kind Neha Viswanathan sends me links to some interesting cow pictures, as well as this beautiful one. Such green!

And Gaurav is amused by a cow which is a sitting duck. Don't joke about cows, Gaurav.

These are just three of the 14 people who have emailed me in the last 12 hours with links to cow-related stuff. Most of the rest went to Google News, typed in "cow", and sent me a result or four. Enough now. Too much of a good thing and all that.

Previous posts on cows: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18.
