help Rescue six cows from slaughter this weekend


Thanks to our benevolent donors, Shri. Sai was able to save the cows. Sethubandhanam’s donors had helped rescue 6 cows and one calf. The pics of the cows are here. 

Further the rescued cows have been housed safely in the Sri Periyava Kainkaryam Gaushala, Uthukaddu Kuppam Road, Uthukaadu Village, Walajahbad, Kanchipuram Dt – 631305 

details of this cause 

There are 6 cows that need to be urgently rescued for they are in the slaughter house. Considering the time-criticality of this, we kindly request you to direct donate to Mr. Sai’s trust that can be found here. Each cow is around INR 15,000 which will be housed safely in goshalas post the rescue. Please feel free to reach out to Shri. Sai via whatsapp

Significance of this cause

Gho-samrakshan, protection of cows is more a duty than a charity. Mahatma Gandhi aptly summarizes this as follows:

Cow protection is the gift of Hinduism to the world. And Hinduism will live so long as there are Hindus to protect the cow.  Hindus will be judged not by their tilaks, not by the correct chanting of mantras, not by their pilgrimages, not by their most punctilious observances of caste rules, but their ability to protect the cow

Most of the bulls, calves and cows (milking or otherwise), never meet their natural death, i.e., they are slaughtered. Bharatha desa, the land that reveres the cow, now has the dubious distinction of being one of the largest exporters of beef! 

Sethubandhanam’s donors have helped Sai and team rescue many cows/bulls/calves in the past.

Cows Rescued from Slaughter

The Periyava Kainkaryam group led by Sai and their effort

Sai Srinivasan, Shri. Gopal and their team (the Periyava Kainkaryam group)  are determined to save as many cows from the clutches of death as possible.  Shri. Sai’s approach is unique – he purchases the cattle from cow dealers/markets from where they’d be sold for slaughter and takes it upon himself to ensure the cows are transported to one of the network of farms or gho-shalas where cows can spend the rest of their lives. 

Sai, a professional who has spent decades in the US, has himself saved 1000 bovines in the past 4 years after relocating to India along with his Periyava Kainkaryam team.  Besides, they have supplied various gho-shalas with cow-rehabilitation machines, including prosthetic limbs for cows, to rehabilitate the cows rescued.  It’s rare to see someone as committed to the cause as Sai and his team. No mean feat, considering they have regular careers to attend to.  Shri. Sai Shrinivasan is also an author of the Sage of Kanchi – Mahaperiyavaa Blog.
