Vishwa Mangal Gou Gram Yatra – A movement to restore smile of farmers

published on July 23, 2009

“The Vishwa Mangal Gou Gram Yatra is an initiative to put Bharatiya villages on the path of sustainable development by focusing on the cow-based way-of-life. It is a massive national movement to restore freedom to the cow to live and die with dignity. It aims to bring back the smile on the faces of Bharatiya farmers and is a pilgrimage to regain the lost soul of the nation,” said the head of Sri Ramchandrapura Math, Karnataka, and the guiding force behind the Vishwa Mangal Gou Gram Yatra Shree Raghaveshwara Bharati Swamiji in Constitution Club, New Delhi on June 27 while talking to mediapersons.

Swamiji informed that the Yatra is a joint endeavour of all the saints, environmentalists, scientists and scholars who wish to do something concrete for the protection and preservation of the cow and also to save the farmers from the clutches of untimely death. He made it clear that the movement would be kept away from politics and the common man of the country would be exhorted to preserve the priceless gift of the God to the mankind.

Noted yoga scientist and national working president of the Yatra Samiti Dr HR Nagendra said the demand of the Bharatiya cow is growing worldwide due to her wider usefulness. It has scientifically been proved that the milk of Bharatiya indigenous cows decreases the cholesterol level in the blood. He said the Yatra is a wake-up call given by the spiritual leaders of the nation to save the cow, the village, Bharat and the world through a positive action.

A comprehensive website (www.gougram.org) was also launched on the occasion to provide detailed updated information about the Yatra in Hindi, English and Kannada languages. The Yatra will commence from Kurukshetra on September 30 and traversing through the length and breadth of the country in 108 days will conclude in Nagpur on January 17, 2010. A massive signature campaign will be undertaken for protection of the cow demanding declaration of the cow a national animal, enactment of a central law for cow protection and stopping all kinds of cruelties on the cow and her progeny.
