is the Concept of Cow Protection and Habitat Conservation. In Sanskrit
the word 'Gaushala' literally means cow protection or the place where
cows are sheltered. Other Sanskrit names for the cow are Go-mata (mother
cow), Kamadhenu (wish fulfilling), and Aghnya (never to be killed).
Seva Parishad (shelter home) was established in 1986 at Kesardeysar
Jatan (District Bikaner, Rajasthan) by the founder Prayag Chand Chandak.
Initially the Gaushala was started with 5 cows. Now we have around 425
cows in Gaushala. Maintaining what we have is depends mostly on hard
work and proper management. Our investments have been by personal
sacrifice and a help from our friends, symphathisers and cow protectors
who, although unable to personally raise and protect cows, see the
necessity for cow protection and are willing to lend a helping hand.
Facilities we have:
• Gaushala is running on 70 Bigga land.
• Tin shed covered with weed and hay to protect more than 1000 cows and calves.
• We have three cemented water container for drinking water facility to the rescued animals.
• Two staff rooms, Five Godwans and Two rooms are constructed for the Gopalks, the care takers of cows.
• We avail drinking water for cows from nearby village wells; for this requirement most of the time we have to pay a big amount.
• We have taken grazing yards on rent.
• We have fodder cutting machine.
