Cow Dungs in Dusty Agra

Agra was very dusty. The leaves of the plants growing by the roadside had a thick layer of dirt and as we walked along a road in the middle of nowhere, hunting for an eatery to have our breakfast, some wild boars sauntered by .By the roadside , cow dungs were spread out like pancakes to dry. Cow dungs are not as dirty as some people tend to think. Besides being plant-based and not being smelly, they are really useful. That is why Hindus don't eat beef, I heard. Cows work for men in the field, provide milk and their dungs could be used to thatch up walls as well as be used as fuel. For all their contributions, they are appreciated...
