Unfortunately there isn’t much grass for the cows to eat in Varanasi but they still provide a good amount of pooh (made up of the left over food that is thrown on the ground). As you walk along the Ganges you see rolled patties of cow pooh drying in the sun. It is turned and then stood on its edges to completely dry out. This is then used for starting and fueling their fires to cook their food. So resourceful.
