Bull Smiling Competition

Until they know you, bulls generally show the side of themselves that is grave, aloof and even intimidating. Yet they have another side which is warm, friendly and even frivolous. During the interim between the monsoon and fall, when the days are hot and humid, the bulls decided to exercise their lighter side and inaugurate the first smiling competition. They hoped it would distract them from the discomfort of the season and help the days preceding Kartika pass quickly.

Lala, Bhima’s Junior and Senior began by curling their noses and encouraged the others to participate.

When Krsna showed his teeth, Padma and Mohan followed and the fever spread to the others.

Kamal and Baba brought the competition to a more humorous level while Kisor’s unique offering inspired approval and admiration.

Nakula, Balarama, and Sahadeva brought the competition to its peak. In this way the bulls accomplished their two goals and agreed to make this activity regular function at Care for Cows.






I do not like eating meat because I have seen lambs and pigs killed. I saw and felt their pain. They felt the approaching death. I could not bear it. I cried like a child. I ran up a hill and could not breathe. I felt that I was choking. I felt the death of the lamb.
