Soaps, tubes of toothpaste, room fresheners, incense sticks, eye drops and pain-relieving oils and other products made from cow urine and cow dung are now on sale at the ongoing Magh Mela in Prayagraj.

These products have been manufactured at a gaushala in Bithoor in Kanpur and among the best-sellers are medicines for indigestion, arthritis, cataract, diabetes and lung infection.

Abhishek Bajpai, manager of the VHP-run cow shelter, told local reporters that this is the first time that these products were on sale at the Magh Mela, though some of them had debuted in the market during the 2013 and 2019 Kumbh Melas.
