    Since time immemorial in India, cow faeces have been used for medicinal purposes, to ward off insects, and as a disinfectant. Even today, many rural households apply cow dung cakes on the exterior walls of their mud houses and wash their verandas with turmeric and cow manure.

    New Delhi (Sputnik):  A woman in the Indian state of Gujarat smearing her car with cow dung to beat the heat has left a lot of people on social media amused and others shocked. With temperatures continuing to soar during the summer in the Indian state of Gujarat, the woman from Ahmedabad city recently hit upon a novel idea to shield her car from the burning heat.

    The woman, identified as Sejal Shah, used this age-old method to cool the interior and exterior of the car, which turned quite hot after being parked out in the open for too long during daytime.

    A photograph of the car posted recently on social media is drawing a lot attention from netizens.
