As days are passing by, most women are losing touch with hard core household chores. Churning curd for butter is one of them.
Milk from native cows is curdled. The curd is then churned for butter. Butter is then heated to give very tasty and naturally flavoured ghee! Ghee made this way is healthy, and does not give any ill-effects on the level of cholesterol in a body. Our scholars gave beautiful inner sense to this external act. Don’t miss reading it and sharing it with your near and dear!
A mother would add this ghee to the child’s feed and feed the child with her hands (the God given natural spoon and forks)! The child’s food did not have anything bought from outside, frozen and re-heated etc. It was all fresh and healthy. The ghee, sneham bonded people.
To revive this, Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji encouraged an event called ‘Dadi Madhanotsavam’, the Churning of Curd by 108 Women organised at Divya Saketham, JIVA! Srimathi Vasumati Bhaskar Rao, head of JBIT group of Institutions lead the event with help from a team of volunteers.
Swamiji also churned curd and said,
Swamiji added, ‘This activity is so good for health and avoids the need for using an elliptical at gym!’ ????.

Women totally accepted the above statement because they were properly sweating from the activity! The entire upper body was at work. While making the woman physically healthy for a good cause, the activity also yields products that are an absolute treat for the entire family! Take the first step towards this, even if it means domesticating cattle for milk!
