Driver Coats Car With Cow Dung To Cool It As Temperatures Soar
With temperatures touching 45 degrees Celsius in Ahmedabad, a resident of the city has come up with an innovative way to stay cool while driving. A Facebook post that has raised quite a few eyebrows online shows a car completely covered with cow dung. Surprised? Curious? Grossed out? According to Facebook user Rupesh Gauranga Das, who shared the pics online, the car belongs to a woman who covered it in dung to cool it down as the heat rises in the city.
Applying cow dung to the walls and floors of houses is a common practice in India. It is believed that the dung helps the structures remain cool in summers and warm in winters.
