Interesting farm that actually cycled through manure from Gir cattle into worming compost farm to fertilise their Anolli plantation which in return halved their irrigation.

What an experience to give a rotti to this cow. I always thought they scavenged and it was all words without actions. These people came out onto the street from their homes and fed a rotti and then touched the cows head for blessing

Ahmedabad and anything goes... After long travels the food outlet Honest seemed a good place for a BURGER! If you see a very bright orange palm tree also, then I know I am not on drugs!!!

After so much Gujarati food it was great to hit Choice in Ahmedabad for a tasty (and yes spicy) club sandwich.

Very impressive set up on a family vardi. Cow manure is the source of energy. Poured into the back of this old outdoor toilet building it ferments further filling up the tank beside. Compost is deposited over a couple of metres and the gaseous product is piped back to the house fueling the stove and hot water.
