For a lighter tone in a ‘POST’, an odd thought occurred to me in class today about cows. For some reason it struck me as funny that for the third myth in a row I read or heard about, and the first animal disccused was a cow. It brought back to me a memory of traveling with my then 3 year old half way across the world, driving down the road and she got all excited about seeing cows there. As if that was the highlight of our trip.
Anyway, a cow was vital to Kunti at the begining of time and is still sacred today to East Indians. They are important in so many creation myths I wonder if there is more to it than just animals common amognst early tribes.
