Default Feng shui? Incense sticks from dung

JAIPUR: The Japanese have developed a fancy for incense sticks made of cow dung. A large quantity of such organic incense sticks are being exported by a Mumbai-based company to Japan.

These fragrant incense sticks are made of cow dung derived from a "gaushala" (cow shelter) — Santshri Asaram Gaushala — at Niwai in Tonk district, 70 km from here. Spread over 51 "bighas", the "gaushala" has 1,500 cows. It provides direct employment to 350 women and 176 men.
The incense is used by the Japanese during prayers and medidation. It is also used as a room freshner in their homes.

According to Babu Lal Gupta, an official at the Santshri Asaram "gaushala", the incense stick in available in various shapes. It is manufactured by the Mumbai exporter at the "gaushala" premises at Newai. The "gaushala" sells cow dung at the rate of Rs 9,000 a tonne to the exporter. Local labourers thereupon convert it into aromatic incense.

Gupta said the Japanese like the incense sticks made of cow dung because of its organic content and since it is eco-friendly. It is not known how much of the incense sticks made here is exported, but a large quantity of cow dung is bought by the exporter every month for this purpose, said Gupta.

The "gaushala’s" development wing is now trying to improve upon the incense sticks by increasing their organic ingredients. Besides making incense sticks, the "gaushala" has also become a major centre for producing cow urine’s essence (Gomutra arc). Gupta said the "gau mutra" is distilled and is used for making ayurvedic medicine.

======================================

The tailgate of one of their trucks must have burst opened with all the gas build-up and you happened to run over it.

Did it lead to "dungaplaning" just like aquaplaning?

Just drive over to their company and dump the dung - you can go home with a cool 9k - must be even more now.

... that's taking this into a new direction man... (Can we have more than 2 smiley's just for this thread please..). Soon we can have jokes and movie dialogs that are about dung. I know one of those from a Prem Chopra movie: "Bhens poonch othaige to gaana nahin gaiygi. gobar hi karegi"...

Just imagine being in a room which has dung smelling incense sticks burning. Would be good to get rid of unwanted guests though :-)

Wonder how? are they planning to mix more dung into the cow dung to increase the organic content or maybe mix some bull dung or pour some red-bull into it..??

wow sugand gobar. Not bad. Soon we may have facewashes and what not with this. Gobar waala deo anyone?

Well a bit OT: Once this wild herd of elephants decided to visit my uncles house. So one ele decided to bless the courtyard with a couple of lumps of dungo. The next morning uncle was not surprised by the visitors as half the animals are never in the forests esp during summers.
He just prodded the dung and was shocked to find close to 150 seeds of the favorite fruits the JACKFRUIT. Imagine 150 bloody jackfruit seeds!

And this seems to be the perfect solution to people (most bhpians) fed up with the traffic of cities like Bangalore, Mumbai etc. that normally inches along slower than a snail's pace.

Just give your baby (I mean the car) a generous coating of the strong smelling variety of dungeordorant and off you go - the road will open up like Moses opened up the Red sea. Of course if the car occupants put on some gas masks, it will improve the effect and they might even be alive by the end of the drive.

sonirohit, my friend, as they say, "SH*T happens!".

Wiki defines the expression this way: 'used as a simple existential observation that life is full of imperfections. It is an acknowledgment that bad things happen to people for no particular reason'. So, that's how all my four wheels got squished.

also, i am unable to bottle up my guilt after laying my eyes on this (all due to the **## wiki)

'Dung beetles eat dung excreted by herbivores and omnivores, and prefer that produced by the former. They do not need to eat or drink anything else because the dung provides all the necessary nutrients. Instead they use their mouthparts to squeeze and suck the juice from the manure, a liquid full of micro-organisms and other nutrients'

'Two beetles, one male and one female, will be seen around the dung ball during the rolling process. Usually it is the male that rolls the ball, with the female hitch-hiking or simply following behind. In some cases the male and the female roll together. When a spot with soft soil is found, they stop and bury the dung ball. They will then mate underground.'

Forgive me if you can, dung beetles. I must've interrupted your exciting lives pretty bad.

the pic says it all...

@d_himan, my friend, it's ok. No need to jump the gun, I guess. The dung beetles are not going to be dropped by the bovine specimen, along with the dung. They too need a proper environment, and the road is definitely not one of them. The dung also needs to have dried up atleast a little before these beetles move in.

If you still do feel guilty, you can check with the beetles how to make it up to them I guess.

Medical definition of probe - A slender, flexible surgical instrument used to explore a wound or body cavity.

Source - probe: Definition, Synonyms from Answers.com

This thread is getting nastier by the minute. We are now defining probes.
