Stella Benson Quotes: Cows In India Occupy The Same Position

Cows In India Occupy The Same Position In Society As Women Did In England Before They Got The Vote. Woman Was Revered But Not Encouraged. Her Life Was One Long Obstacle Race Owing To The Anxiety Of Man To Put Pedestals At Her Feet. While She Was Falling Over The Pedestals She Was Soothingly Told That She Must Occupy A Place Apart - And Indeed, So Far Apart Did Her Place Prove To Be That It Was Practically Out Of Earshot. The Cow In India Finds Her Position Equally Lofty And Tiresome. You Practically Never See A Happy Cow In India.
