Imagine if you will
You are walking on the street. You reach a vegetable vendor. You start bargaining for products. Everything’s all normal.
Then a cow falls on your head.
Or imagine this
You are on your boat in the ocean, fishing. Its all quiet and peaceful, you are looking at the vastness of nature and questioning existence
Then a cow falls from the sky
Or imagine this
Its night, you are sleeping on your bed dreaming about Salma Hayek.
All of sudden, a cow falls on you.
Think all of this a result of some febrile imagination?
Truth, my dear people, is always stranger than fiction.
Take the case of Abdul Mannan.
According to the locals, a cow was tied with ropes on the terrace of a four-storey building by a tenant. But she snapped the ropes and jumped over the wall to land on Mannan, who was buying vegetables from a roadside vendor.
Abdul Mannan, 43 is now hospitalised with multiple injuries in his head, leg and ribs after the bizarre incident on Sunday in south Kolkata’s Tiljala area.
Or take the case of these Japanese fishermen.
In 1997, the crew of a Japanese fishing boat was pulled from the Sea of Japan after clinging to the boat’s wreckage for several hours. They claimed a cow had fallen from the sky, and struck the boat resulting in a huge hole and its rapid sinking.
Suspecting them of yanking a collective chain, the police arrested them. The crew remained in prison for several weeks until Japanese authorities were contacted by several highly embarrassed Russian air force officials. It turned out that the crew of a Russian cargo plane had stolen a cow that wandered near their Siberian airfield and forced it onto their plane before they took off for a flight home. Once airborne, the cow apparently panicked and starting rampaging through the cargo hold, causing the crew also to panic because it was affecting the plane’s stability. They solved the problem by shoving the cow out of the hold while crossing the Sea of Japan at 30,000 feet.
Or take the case of poor Senor de Souza
Joao Maria de Souza, 45, was sleeping in bed with his wife Leni when a cow fell through the ceiling of their home in Caratinga, southeast Brazil.
The cow is believed to have escaped from a nearby farm and climbed onto the roof of the couple’s house, which backs onto a steep hill on Wednesday night.
The corrugated roof immediately gave way and the one-and-a-half-ton animal fell eight feet onto Mr de Souza’s side of the bed.
But that’s not all. There’s also.
So you see, the bovine blockheads have made it their mission to cause havoc.
You still wonder why we Hindus worship them?
