Where nothing is off topic.
Was browsing through your pictures, and see you made it to India. Interesting commentary (social and philosophical) on some pictures, which provides a perspective that we Indians do not tend to have, frog in boiling water syndrome.However found a couple of instances where the commentary is blatantly wrong.http://www.flownet.com/ron/Africa08/Africa08-Pages/Image155.html"This cow actually belongs to someone, and will eventually be eaten. "She probably does not belong to any one, and more importantly will "not" be eaten and will more likely die a normal death after consuming large amount of offerings at a local temple.And you think life is hardhttp://www.flownet.com/ron/Africa08/Africa08-Pages/Image120.htmlIt depends on which species you are born as and in which society. A cow on the street almost certainly has a luxurious life in India, and is food waiting to happen in North America.
> She probably does not belong to any one, and more importantly will "not" be eaten and will more likely die a normal death after consuming large amount of offerings at a local temple.We were told by out driver that this was not the case, that cows are sacred in Northern India, but that in Cochin they were just livestock.
