In India, where Hindus have long worshipped cows as sacred, cow dung has been used for centuries as fuel for fires - whether for heat, cooking or in Hindu ritual fires, where it's a necessity. Now, online vendors like Amazon, ShopClues and eBay are selling cow dung patties to India's ever-increasing urban population, especially those who grew up in villages.

Kathmandu:  A six-year-old girl was forcefully fed cow dung by her neighbour for breaking down the water pump in Nepal’s Banke district.

Police arrested Gita Pariyar, 50, of Kohalpur for the act that took place when the girl was playing on the foreyard of the woman’s house on Monday evening, the Kathmandu Post reported.

Pariyar accused the girl of breaking down her water pump and force-fed her in a fit of rage.
