ABSTRACT

This paper is on the devastating condition of the cows and bulls in India despite the fact that the cow is considered as the sacred holy mother of the Hindus. This exploitative condition of the animal is associated with the condition of the human beings (the subjects of the Republic of India) in a metaphorical manner. Psychoanalytic tools are deployed to understand this love-hate relationship with the female body embedded within the high-caste Hindu Brahmins. This aporia is also observed in the reverse sexism of the Hindu worldview.

येद्वेकालंविधत्तःश्रुतिविषयगुणायास्थिताव्याप्यविश्वम्।

यांआहुःसर्वबीजप्रकृतिरितिययाप्राणिनःप्राणवन्तः

प्रत्यक्षाभिःप्रपन्नस्तनुभिरवतुवस्ताभिरष्टाभिरीशः॥१॥
