As the mercury in the western city of Ahmedabad crosses 45 degrees Celsius, the woman, identified as Sejal Shah coated her Toyota sedan completely slathered with cow dung to keep it cool in the summer, reported Indian Express.
One a Facebook user, Rupesh Gaurang Das, posted the images on the social media platform that quickly went viral.
He wrote, “Best use of cow dung I have ever seen. It’s in Amdavad.” “To counter 45 degree heat temperatures and protect car from getting hot Mrs Sejal Shah has plastered her car with cow dung. Getting cool,” added Das, who said the photos were taken in Ahmedabad.
