I think someone is about to use the loophole that since no one was hurt during the extraction of milk, its okay. I don't buy that since the cow didn't volunteer to give up the milk. She was forced.

Milk might be non veg.. it could be veg.. I am not going into an argument there. But even if it was non veg, remember the first foode EVERY mamal has (including whale) is milk.. milk from the mother.. so even before you made up your mind weather you are veg or non veg, and even before you learnt how to ask such a question or even spend a second over that issue, you have spent many many second digesting that very stuff and relishing it.. so if you think milk is non veg, then every one of us is a non vegeterian.. if you think it is veg.. then some of us are vegeterians.. (a. la. Landya bhai who says he is a jain).. even buddhism and jainism do not prohibit milk..

By the way, who ever said milk was forcefully taken from a cow.. learn that if the cow is lactating and the milk is not removed, she will be under extreme duress.. the milk has to be pumped out and if no consumers thrown away.

I say milk is an exception.. it is not non veg.. it is not veg.. it is the only food that is compulsory if you are a mammal.

(Ever watched anyone trying weening away a 1 year old from breast feeding? The hungama the one year old puts up is hillarious to see, irritating to the mother, and the kid is relentless)

But wouldn't the cow feed her calves with the milk and not be in duress? The only reason she would be in trouble if she is separated from them and then she would require lactacting.

But very good pt. about us drinking milk from birth Gpel. Never thought of it that way.

From what I was told (by our gwala) an adult cow/goat/buffalo lactates continuously unlike other mamals that stop lactating when the kid stops nursing (for example, humans, dogs and that is why cows are considered for diary farming and not animals that stop lactating a.la dog).. so if there is no calf around to suckle, the cow will be in pain and might get serious illness. Actually our gwalaa told me they do not milk cows that have nursing calf and leave that milk for the calf (atleast in chattisgrah). Also, the calf starts eating grass and stuff right from birth (it has teeth even as a new born unlike humans who get their teeth only after about 9 months and are totally dependant on their parents to feed them)..

I might be wrong, but I am willing to learn.

One of the reasons for hindu prohibiting beef is because we consume cow milk all our lives and hence it is considered equivalent to mother.

no a cow does not lactate all the time. you need to milk it regularly so as to keep it lactating. even then after a while it stops giving milk. at that time, the cow has to conceive again.

same is the case with humans. ive seen 6-7 year old kids still breast-fed!

Sweetie, who told you a person needs a Ph.D to be a milk man.. also whats wrong if I indeed was a milkman in India or for that matter even in USA? Should I be taking offense at that? I see absolutely nothing wrong in being a milkman. :confused:

Oh by the way if you have written that with true genuine awe.. then thanks for the appreciation because I was truely impressed with our milkman. An illiterate, he knew more about his animals than the local veternerian.., he was an expert in martial arts using sticks, spears, sword and even 20 men would not be able to fight him.. he truely was a gifted person. He has over 20 acres of land, about 50 or so cows and buffalos, a nice big house and all well deserved for a honest hard working man (who starts work at 4 am in the morning and ends at 9 PM everyday).

May be you are right... In anycase, that was what was told to me by the milkman. He told that to me because I asked him once that are we not "stealing" milk away from the calf?. to that he replied they never milk animals that are nursing their young. Only the ones whose young has stopped drinking milk and eats regular stuff (grass/hay et. al).

No I did not take offense at all.. Infact, your post was oozing sarcasm so much that, I thought you saw something wrong with the profession of a milk man, and/or you somehow think you are much above the level of a milk man.. and hence I asked what was it that you found so wrong about being a milkman.. or what makes you superior to a milk man.

Afterall he too serves a purpose in the society.. or else one would have to raise a cow in one of the bedrooms and milk it everyday for one's morning coffee.. which the society at large can clearly identify with, while what ever you do might not be even that important :rolleyes:

I used to have a pet cow. :) My grandfather was a farmer. He had a couple of camels, a few cows and a bunch of hens. And peacocks used to visit them in the early morning on the roof. I even picked cotton during my school breaks.

Anyway, I think milk products are vegetarian. Though milk is derived from animals, an animal does not have to be killed to obtain it. Traditionally, the calf gets to have milk first before you can milk the cow. The cow will give you a strong kick if the calf isn't given his turn first. Ofcourse, business wise the milkman will not let the calf nurse too long because he might finish all the milk. Its cruel, but according to spiritual books, its all part of Karma.

Sounds like fun :p All I've done is feed roti to a cow, and massaged her neck... :D Lots of cows in Ahmedabad streets :rolleyes:

There were times we hated cows, especially while playing cricket. The guy hits the ball and phew... lands in the fresh gobar. Then fielder takes the ball out, finds a wrapper of paan/masala, and cleans it up :D

Sometimes the gobar was used to our advantage, especially during Diwali. Put a 555 bomb in the gobar near Patlani's house and baaam... repaint the wall ;)

Quick points I observed:
1) What happens to the milk in a cow, if it is not milked out for consumption. Assume that the cow no longer has calves to feed, then what happens if the cow is not milked?

2) If we are to not use animal products, then isn't milk non-vegetarian as it comes from a cow or buffalo? Even butter is made from fat in the cow milk, then is it not non-vegetarian?

no idea what would happen

2) If we are to not use animal products, then isn't milk non-vegetarian as it comes from a cow or buffalo? Even butter is made from fat in the cow milk, then is it not non-vegetarian?

I will give a new twist to this story:

1. what if the cow dies in the process of milking, would the milk be non-vegetarian?

2. What if it survives the ordeal, then would the milk become vegetarian?

Milk is milk ... it does not change ... infact even the milk does not know whether it is being called by the word "milk" ... heck all the organic molecules (if the milk goes for atomic fission) are the same as you could find in any fruit, plant, stone, dead skin etc. ... Now tell me whether the milk is vegetarian or not :D

Milk can be comsumed by vegetarians. it is avoided by those who are Vegans.

The idea of Plant and Animal is more from west. In Bharat, it is Violence and Non violence (or Fatal Violence if i put it). A cow or a buffalo is not killed while milking. That is Jains comsume milk and milk products but avoid Onions and probably other root vegetables (guess plants are killed)

many aming Hindus consider Milk as satwik food and Onions and spicy things as 'Rajasic' (which interfere seeker's concentration for self realization).

That is for principles - in Reality, even veg food involves kiling of pests and others. Milch cattle nowadays are fed with drugs to make them produce more milk. So, hardly any food is free of violence. that is why Guru Nanak's saying rings a bell
"Only fools argue whether to eat meat or not. They don't understand truth nor do they meditate on it. Who can define what is meat and what is plant? Who knows where the sin lies, being a vegetarian or a non- vegetarian?"

In fact, I am thinking of starting a new food-eating category, small animal meat eaters (SAME)... as it is hard to kill large animals with minimum pain. And also most of the large animals are endangered and we need to preserve them. Any animal that can be killed with a jhatka... and takes seconds to die... can be eaten.

You nailed it - Drink water, and that too direct rain water so that you dont happen to injest any microbes or bacteria which might be in the water when its stored in tanks. Also breathe air alone, that too direct :p and not airconditioned because to power the airconditioner it takes energy from fossil fuels (most likely) to generate the electricity.Or if its hydel power then again you are using water stored in reservoirs which definitely add bacteria, etc. to it.

So yes krishna ji, just breathe fresh clean air, drink rain water and you will be a pure vegetarian.

You may eat vegetables and plants but only dried up and dead ones because even plants are supposed to have a life and eating them is like killing them.

So there you go, a simple way to remain completely vegetarian.

Also for more details, you should look up www.peta.org.

I gave the response based on what I have seen. At my parents home they use bhains ka doodh and the butter at their place is white and tastes a little different. Also ghee made from that butter is different in taste and look.

At my place we get cow's milk and the butter is yellowish and ghee also same.

But I googled it and found that content of Beta Carotene in the butter decides its color mainly. The higher the content, the more yellow the butter. The content % depends on the feed and maybe processing too. Read this thread below

Actually most of the milk sold in Indian cities, packaged or loose, is buffalo milk.

Cow milk has to be purchased specifically by asking for it, some businesses have come up off late in India which provide pure cow milk, it's expensive but worth it.

I remember cow milk coming in 250 ml bottles ages back. I had it once from college hustle canteen. But it was unsweetened, so had a tough time finishing it.

Most of the milk from Doodh walas is from buffalo. I remember trying cow ghee sometime back. It does not add taste like buffalo ghee. It is meant to be used for Poojas.
