The advisory committee urged supporters of cows in India to observe February 14 as “Cow Hug Day” on February 6. AWBI noted that the progress of western culture over time has undermined the Vedic traditions which are on the verge of extinction.

In its general appeal, the Animal Welfare Board said, “In view of the immense benefit of the cow, hugging a cow will bring emotional richness, hence will increase our individual & collective happiness. Therefore, all the cow lovers may also celebrate February 14 as ‘Cow Hug day’ keeping in mind the importance of mother cows and making life happy and full of positive energy.”
