The cow is the only animal that inhales and exhales oxygen, says Rajasthan education minister

Vasudev Devnani said the youth play a prominent role in promoting conservation of the animal in India.

The cow is the only animal that can inhale and exhale oxygen, Rajasthan Education Minister Vasudev Devnani has said, reported The Indian Express. Devyani was speaking at the Hingonia Goshala on Saturday for an event organised by Akshay Patra where he made these comments.

Gai ekmatra prani hai jo oxygen grahan karta hai, aur oxygen hi chodta hai (The cow is the only animal that inhales oxygen and exhales oxygen),” he said, according to the English daily. He said that there is a need to “understand the scientific significance of the cow” and urged people to spread this message.

Devnani also said that people are healed of diseases when they are near a cow, adding that the youth play a prominent role in promoting conservation of the animal in the country, Hindustan Times reported. Cow dung has an ample quantity of Vitamin B, which results in soaking radioactivity, he added.

According to a report published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation in 2006, the livestock sector generates more greenhouse gas emissions than the transport sector.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
