Elderly seller of vegetables as food for cattle (Udaipur, Rajasthan, india).
In the religion of Hinduism, the animal called a "cow" is thought to be sacred, or very holy. Most Hindus respect the cow for her gentle nature which represents the main teaching of Hinduism, non-injury (ahimsa). It has become a common myth to ridicule Hindus by saying they "worship cows". However, Hindus don't worship cows, but in fact they respect it like any other animal as they believe all life has a soul in which God resides.
Thus killing it would be - in a way - a crime. The cow is very honored in society, and most Hindus do not eat their meat.
