Applying cowdung to the courtyard – a childhood Christmas memory

Let me begin by saying cowdung pies as they are called are now exported from India to the Western countries.  

Having said that I know  you will now  not be ill at ease when I tell you that we kids helped mother to apply  cowdung paste to courtyards in readiness for Christmas  What you see in the image  however are not us (lol)

The courtyard looked spotless with this application.  Cowdung is a disinfectant. And surprisingly the smell that emanated from the dried up courtyard was pleasant and acceptable. 

Cowdung has several uses.  It is an excellent manure, the cowdung pies are used as fuel and now you know it is also applied to courtyards and floors.
