Update on the cow urine industry

The "remote nondescript village" of Uttarakshi in India is taking a leap into the modern age. The villagers are helping to finance the construction of "an ultra modern hi tech distillation plant of 8000 litres capacity." What they'll be distilling is cow urine.

According to the press release on pharmabiz.com:

distilled purified cow urine is being sold in the market at Rs.40 per 100 milli litre with the brand name of Divya Godhan Ark prescribed for indications like general debility, obesity, abdominal diseases, skin diseases, diabetes, cough and asthma. It is recommended in doses of 10 to 20 ml based on the indication and as prescribed by the physician.

If all goes well, the Uttarakshi plant can be expanded to up production to 10,000 litres of the liquid gold daily.

So, eating the flesh of a cow is sacrilegious, but consuming bovine waste is good medicine?

What is the advertising slogan for Divya Godhan Ark? "Divya! A little dab'll do ya!"

Sounds like a really pissy place to work where if you are not out urine.
