‘Lots of people come here. And of late, the numbers have been rising. We all gather in the morning and drink fresh urine that Mother cow offers us,’ Singhal said
‘Cow urine has been mentioned in ancient Hindu scriptures. No one can doubt the good effects it has on the human body. It is a divine gift from God.’
Followers like Gupta, however, insist that urine from every cow cannot be beneficial.’The cow, whose urine one has to drink, should be a virgin – she must not have delivered a calf. Also, the urine is to be collected just before sunrise – that urine has the best effect,’ he said.
However, there are people who oppose the claims made by preachers.
‘People keep saying all kinds of things about cow urine, but we don’t mind. People don’t know what this is. They have never experienced the taste of cow urine or its effects, so how can they judge it,’ Singhal said.
He is now eyeing to cash in on the growing trend and has plans to start manufacturing cow urine products on a commercial scale.
‘We can manufacture eye drops, medicines for stomach ailments, toothpaste, bathing soaps, herbal powdered medicine, among other things, from cow urine,’ he said.
‘Many cow shelters are manufacturing these products. There is a lot of demand for these products. They have good sales.’
