When I was in Pushkar, Rajasthan last year I spotted these donation boxes outside the temples, all handpainted with cows. I saw a lot of cows too. In fact one in particular had its eye on me the entire time I sat by the water’s edge.
It was absolutely blistering heat that day and the floors burnt my feet with every step.
There are a lot of tourist market stalls around when you first enter Pushkar, selling clothes, jewellery and usual touristy stuff but one thing they don’t sell which they should is a miniature version of their donation boxes. But hey I just found this instead…
Available from online store Scaramanga (£25) it’s the coolest home for spare pennies I’ve seen in a long long time.
And now for some real holy cows…
