I learned something absolutely amazing today.

You can make phone chips from cow dung.

Seriously.

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.

(I can’t honestly tell what Mr. Kathiria is holding, but I imagine it’s one of these amazing chips. Or “chips” as the Press referred to them)

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.

The Aayog, which comes under the Department of Animal Husbandry and Dairying, has started a nation-wide campaign to encourage the use of cow dung-based products during festivals.

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.

But wowzer!

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…
