In addition to providing transport, cows are very important to humans because they give us
milk and butter, and help in tilling the land.

The Indian people have a deep respect for cows. During the Pongal Harvest Festival they show
this respect by bathing the cows, painting their horns, and hanging flowers around their necks.
In Singapore the Pongal Festival is celebrated in Little India in the month of January.
