In India, summers are the hottest and can turn worse with each day. To beat the heat people are seen doing various stints but this initiative by a woman from Ahmedabad has stood out from all.
This woman coated her Toyota Corolla Altis with cow dung to keep it cool. Isn’t it cool?
In India, temperatures already soaring above 40 degrees Celcius and in this condition even the AC seem ineffective.
The Facebook page of Animal Helpline-Karuna Foundation recently posted the pictures which show the car covered in cow dung. Another Facebook user Rupesh Gauranga Das has claimed the owner of the car to be one Mrs. Sejal Shah. He wrote ‘Best use of cow dung I have ever seen’. He said the photos were taken in Ahmedabad.
The post has left many with a curiosity to know how the occupants of the vehicle would deal with the smell of the cow dung. Also, some of them wanted to know how many layers of cow dung cooled the vehicle.
In rural India, this technique of cow dung is used to keep the hut cool. It is applied on the floors and the walls so that it helps to keep warm in winters and cool in summers. Also, cow dung helps as a mosquito repellent and the practice is quite common in villages.
Earlier, various products including floor cleaners using urine had been launched as applying it on mobile phones stop radiation.
No doubt the cow dung idea on the car is a smart one but there are certain things that cannot be avoided in the process.
