A Cow Was Born, Then....

Nazmun loves writing and watching movie and reading books. Now she wants to take a break and write for Hubpages.

I was just born. My mother is a cow. H

She gave birth to me in the field while eating grass. A man came running to see me. He took me in his arms and cleaned me. Brought me to my mother. I'm very naughty. I drink my mother's milk and run here and there. My mother forbade me to not do mischief so much but I mischief a lot. Sounds great. The man who cleaned me up took care of me and my mom. Mom says this man is very good but most people are bad. That is why she has advised me to refuse to go if I'm called by any man. Some people call me baby but I don't go to them. They will catch me. When they tried to catch me, I ran away and hid behind my mother. Mother shook her horn to scare them. If you want to come closer, you will really dive with horns. Human children do not come here out of fear. They go to play on the other side of the field.

People walk down the street and look at me. Some people look at me and smile. They look at me and say what a beautiful baby!


These people may be good. Again some people come and see me and say that the calf is very beautiful. If I could lift the skin off it's skin, I could make good shoes or bags. These are very bad. My mother told me to always stay away from them.



Caressing a cow

Caressing a cow

I used to go to the field with my mother to eat grass every day. I used to drink mother's milk every day. One night my mother and I were sleeping in a cowshed. The shepherd came and saw that we were all right. At that time a cobra came to the shepherd's feet. Seeing this, the shepherd shouted in fear. Just as the shepherd was about to be bitten by the snake, my mother kicked the snake. The snake bit my mother's leg and before it could bite me, the shepherd picked me up and ran away. When people hear the screams, the snake actually goes away. But what happened to my mother!

After that night the shepherd put me in another place. I go to the field alone to eat grass. I repeatedly called out to my mother for drinking milk. I can't find my mother. Where is my mother? Why don't I see my mother after that night? Why did my mother leave me here all alone?

How are you,mom? Who will I play with now?


One day when I was crying for my mother, the shepherd came and started touching my head. The shepherd would caress my mother and me a lot. No one cares about me except him. The shepherd came and talked to me often. I understand everything. Today he suddenly cried and said my mother is dead. I wanted to ask what happens when someone die? But he will not understand me.


The shepherd would take me to the field every day. And I used to eat grass there. He would give me a bath. Suddenly one day I didn't see the shepherd anymore. Just as the mother is lost, so is the shepherd lost somewhere. I was not given proper food, I went to the field alone, no one bathed me. After going to the field, I felt a lot of dirt on my body. Earlier shepherds used to clean these but now no one does. I can't find the shepherd anywhere. People are saying that the shepherd is dead. This time I realised that to die means to be lost. Why do those who love me die?

I always waited for my mother and shepherd to return one day. In the morning I hoped the shepherd would come and take me to the field. My mother will be there. Mother will caress me. Now I don't want to drink milk. But there was a lot of trouble before. There was a different satisfaction in drinking milk. People also drank my mother's milk. Some even made sweets with my mother's milk.


The day goes on. Months go by. The year also passed. But neither the mother nor the shepherd comes. Now I have a baby of my own. He was born only a few days ago. Like my mother, I have horns. As a kid, I used to have no horns. Now there are horns. So far I have learned how bad people are. I always keep my baby away from people.


I was in a lot of trouble without my mother. I'm afraid now what if I die? One day there were many problems in the shepherd's family. Human life is very complicated. The problem is so much that they need a lot of money. One day I was taken to the market to be sold. But I could hear that they will not give my child with me. But how is that? I'm not going anywhere without my baby. My child will grow up in a shepherd's family. Meanwhile, the shepherd's wife sold me and left with a lot of money. I looked helplessly at the shepherd's wife. The shepherd's wife never looked back at me. They have no place for me in their hearts. My baby will probably be raised very badly. I ran away from the person to whom I was sold and came back to the shepherd's house. New owners follow me. I was beaten a lot. But I will not leave without my child.


My baby is staring at me. The new owner took me. Far away. Far from my baby. Chest is throbbing with difficulty. I still tried one last time. I want to be with my baby. I ran to my child again. After overcoming all obstacles, I ran away with my child for an unknown purpose.
