Translation (per google translate)
After more than twenty years in the United States, Shoba returns to India with his family.
In the streets of Bangalore, businessmen rub shoulders with street vendors, beggars, transvestites and … cows!
Shoba soon befriends Sarala, her dairy neighbor whose cows roam the fields. But when Sarala offers Shoba to participate in the purchase of a new beast begins a funny epic!
Buying a cow in India is not an easy task …
There are strict rules and countless traditions to follow. And how to choose from the forty native breeds of cattle – not counting hybrids!
From cattle fairs to endless haggling, Shoba rediscovers the omnipresence of the animal in Indian life: we drink our milk, but we also use our dung to purify homes, our urine to make medicines …
In a succession of funny and moving scenes in which the cows have the leading role, Shoba Narayan also evokes mantras, Bollywood, Ayurvedic medicine, the caste system, and thus paints a contrasting portrait of India today.
