The ordure was used as a fuel

Shot in the city of Malda, India.

There was a stretch of turf on the riverbank. Walking on the turf, I found a woman crouching alone. As hard as it was to believe, she was just collecting ordure of a cow with her bare hands.

The cow was a blessed animal in Hinduism. So its ordure might be not scummy for Hindus. In practice, the locals used it as fuel after they dried. Anyway, it was eco-friendly on the issue of non-use of fossil fuel.
