Celebrate February 14 as ‘Cow Hug Day’: Animal Welfare Board of India

Mangalore Today News Network

New Delhi, Feb 09, 2023: With Valentine’s Day barely a week away, the Animal Welfare Board of India on Wednesday issued an appeal to celebrate the day of February 14 by hugging cows as it would bring emotional richness and collective happiness.



"We all know that the cow is the backbone of Indian culture and rural economy, sustains our life, and represents cattle wealth and biodiversity. It is known as ’Kamdhenu’ and ’Gaumata’ because of its nourishing nature, like mother, the giver of all, providing riches to humanity," a statement issued by the board read.

The board stated that preserving the cow would help in saving the Vedic traditions that are on the “verge of extinction” due to the progress of “western culture.”

"The dazzle of western civilisation has made our physical culture and heritage almost forgotten," stated the board.

“Therefore, all cow lovers may also celebrate February 14 as Cow Hug day, keeping in mind the importance of the mother cow and making life happy and full of positive energy,” it read.
