'Cow Hug Day' to be celebrated on Feb 14, Why are foreigners paying $200 to hug a cow?

New Delhi: In India, one of the oldest countries in the world, an appeal has been made to celebrate 'COW HUG DAY' on 14 February. Let us tell you that 'Cow Hug Day' means hugging a cow. The initiative has been taken by the Union Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry, and Dairying in association with the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI). According to reports, it has been decided to celebrate 'Cow Hug Day' to make people aware of their culture, emotional prosperity, and happiness.

The appeal made by the board reads, 'We all know that cow is the backbone of Indian culture and rural economy. Along with maintaining our lives, the cow also represents livestock and biodiversity. Cows are known as Kamdhenu and Gaumata because of their nurturing nature and giving milk like a mother.' It is further written in the appeal that due to westernization we have forgotten our culture and Vedic traditions. AWBI's appeal further states that 'by hugging the cow in return for its favors, we will have an emotional connection with the cows. That's why people who love cows should celebrate COW HUG DAY on 14 February. Celebrating this day, we should remember the benefits of cows and the importance of cows in human life. So that positivity and happiness remain intact in our life.'

Let us tell you that, like Yoga Day, the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying in collaboration with the Animal Welfare Board of India has started an initiative to celebrate 'Cow Hug Day' to encourage Indian culture. All the cow lovers have been requested by the board to celebrate this day. The Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) is a constitutional body of the Government of India, which was created under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 (PCA Act).

Foreigners are hugging cows giving $200:

Let us tell you that the tradition of cow love has been going on in our country since ancient times, here the cow is also worshiped as a mother. But now foreigners have also started understanding the importance of cows. According to a report, foreign doctors say that the feeling of hugging a cow is similar to raising a child at home. A hug triggers the happy hormones oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine, which reduces cortisol (the stress hormone), stress levels, and symptoms of anxiety and depression. Cows are calm, gentle, and patient by nature and those who embrace them benefit from the animal's warm body temperature, slow heartbeat, and large size. All this helps regulate the body's metabolism, immunity, and stress response. That is why many people in the US and Europe are embracing the cow for peace of mind and for that they are paying up to $200.
