Why did the cow cross the road?

cow2.jpgThis was a MOST fun sight I came across whilst driving through the Punjab colony area, from Clifton, onwards to Defence… A line of cows calmly crossing the street. Me, armed with my camera, of course did what was so natural – stop and click the scene!

Here’s something that never ceases to amaze me. The time it takes a cow, for example, to cross the road, would be enough to get cars and cars full of busy people going about their busy lives,  to honk like crazy. Few people would take the opportunity to switch off their cars and just let the ‘dairy on feet’ pass by. All this riff raff, cow11.jpgrunning around seems a bit… inhuman.. unnatural.

I know I’m sound like quite the oldie here, but it helps to take a minute away from the fast paced life and well… watch the cows go home, every once in a while. And if we let them cows cross the road peacefully, then perhaps one day we will quite rightfully be able to look at a sight like this and say, “Hey Buddy! Mooooo Over, will ya?!”

    Glad you did not see the chickens crossing the road

    Good catch – and I agree this really helps one break for a moment the fast paced life that seems to have us so-busy-or-ill-die paranoid

    despite such a high center divider,cattle owner seemed to have damaged it and make a opening so that his cattle could cross the road disregarding high speed traffic
