Indian Woman Covers Car in Cow Dung to ‘Protect’ It From 113 Degree Heat

Recommended Posts

A woman in western India went above and beyond to protect her car from soaring temperatures by covering the vehicle in cow dung.

 

Sejal Shah, who lives in Ahmedabad, Gujarat took cues from an old insulation practice of rural residents, who used the same technique to cover their walls and floors in times of extreme weather conditions.

 

Parts of India are recording temperatures of above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) this week, including Gujarat, Delhi, Punjab, Maharashtra, and Odisha, according to The Weather Channel.

 

To ensure safety, officials in certain areas advised people to stay indoors between 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

 

“Best use of cow dung I have ever seen,” wrote Rupesh Gauranga Das, who shared the now-viral photo of Shah’s Toyota sedan on Facebook.

 

He continued, “To counter 45 degree heat temperatures and protect [her] car from getting hot, Mrs. Sejal Shah has plastered it with cow dung. Getting cool.”

 

In the comments, Das revealed that the photos were sent to him on WhatsApp.

 

While he claims that they have been taken in Ahmedabad, the car’s registration shows that it is based in Mumbai and registered under the name of Ramniklal Shah, according to Indian Express.

They left out the rest of the article.

 

 Ahmedabad Gujarat residents quickly followed suit and smeared fecal matter of all sorts over themselves.  Not because of the unbearable heat, "but because it is such fun" Shah mentioned.

I wonder what they will think at the car wash when the weather cools down.
