Cattle are venerated within the Hindu religion of India. According to Vedic scriptures they are to be treated with the same respect 'as one's mother' because of the milk they provide. They appear in numerous stories from the Puranas and Vedas. The deity Krishna was brought up in a family of cow herders, and given the name Govinda (protector of the cows). Also Shiva is traditionally said to ride on the back of a bull named Nandi. In ancient rural India as well as in some parts of India presently households had a few cows which provided a constant supply of milk and a few bulls that helped as draft animals.
