Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Sep 27, 2017: Devotees of ISKCON Nanthoor are on a padyatra (foot march) to promote national peace and security. One leg of the yathra passed through Mangalore’s crowded Car Street where devotees flocked to see the chariot that contained a life-like statue of A C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) movement.

What was also a crowd-puller were the pair of unusual bulls that were used to draw the chariot. This indegenous breed of bull called ’Kankrej’ is originally from the Gulf of Kutch. They are known for their massive curved horns, thick, fatty humps and large dewlaps. They are also prized for their immense strength and capacity for hard work.

The docile pair patiently pulled the chariot and frequently stopped for devotees as people showered the statue with flowers.They walked from the direction of Kudroli, passed through Car Street, wound their way through town and eventually headed off to Nanthoor.
