I learned something absolutely amazing today.
You can make phone chips from cow dung.
Here you go, from the horses’ mouth. Bit of a mixed metaphor, I agree, bit never mind that – just read this exciting news:
Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog (RKA) chairman Vallabhbhai Kathiria has claimed that cow dung has the capacity to counter and reduce radiation from mobile phones and it has been proven scientifically. Unveiling a ‘chip’ made of cow dung, Kathiria said that it reduces radiation from mobile handsets and it will be a safeguard against diseases.
Addressing at the launch of a nationwide campaign ‘Kamdhenu Deepawali Abhiyan’, which is aimed at promoting cow dung products, Kathiria said: “Cow dung will protect everyone, it is anti-radiation… It is scientifically proven…This is a radiation chip that can be used in mobile phones to reduce radiation. It will be safeguarded against diseases.”
Rajkot-based Shrijee Gaushala has manufactured the chip, named Gausatva Kavach. Set up last year, the Rashtriya Kamdhenu Aayog aims at conservation, protection and development of cows and their progeny.
I mean – who knew?
As any of you who follow me on Instagram know, I regularly post pics of the neighbourhood cows, as they amble down the colony roads. Just this morning, in fact, I shared a video of me chatting with a cow (as one does), and admonishing him not to eat all the plastic that was strewn around the place.
Protection from radiation!
I am SO impressed by my bovine friends.
Logically, since it’s their dung that blocks radiation & is (we are told) a safeguard against diseases, our colony roads and pavements should be radiation & disease free…if you see what I mean…
