Buffalo catwalks now!

Lissome models on the catwalk are soon going to have 'weighty' competition.

A buffalo catwalk show, the first ever, was organised in Madhepura, Bihar recently. Over a dozen well dressed buffaloes took part to display their beauty and style. Scores of people gathered to watch the show in open fields. A buffalo named Radha was declared winner and an award of Rs 500 was given to her owner.

According to Prabhat Kumar, the man behind the show, the show was organised to draw the attention of the people to the plight of the animals and to make them care for and respect them.

Buoyed by the success of the show, Kumar plans to organise buffalo catwalks at national and international levels! We may soon have dress designers for buffaloes too.

This happens only in India!

With all the various so called ridiculous fashion weeks going on and assorted people on the catwalk, are women in India getting more attention, and for that matter, "care" and "respect" ?

Very good effort,but will some one please stand up to take up the cause of the human living in desperate conditions?

Ugich Konitari, that is a very good observation. Perhaps it has increased the "commoditification" of women...

BK Chowla, yes, that is important indeed.
