Doctor VC Discovers Cowpathy | 101 Oddly In India

The Doctor tries beauty products made from cowdung and cow urine.

Move over allopathy and homeopathy. There's a new alternative medicinal fad in town. Cowpathy uses the panchgavya - the five elements extracted from the cow; namely cow dung, cow urine, cow milk, curd, and cow ghee - and turns them into beauty products that improve your health! Who wants some cowdung soap, or better yet, cowdung toothpaste? The natural odours of dung and urine have been masked with pleasant fragrances, making these products accessible to all. Doctor VC speaks to Umesh Soni, founder of Cowpathy, to learn more about these products and all of their benefits.

Why does one man fry fish with his hands? Why does another ride an air conditioned motorcycle? Why did a third literally build his restaurant around tombstones? These aren't precursors to a bad joke: they're true stories about real people. They're weird. They're wonderful. They're on Oddly in India.
