Many of us might not follow the traffic rules .Sometimes; we cross the roads blindly or park our vehicle in No-Parking areas!!But among us, within the city there exist some species which know and follow the traffic rules. They posses some good manners also!!

Yes, they are called COWS. Read on and you will know!!

The following sentences are 100 % TRUE.

While I was heading towards airport in Bangalore, an unusual scene happened in Jayangar. There was a cow trying to cross the road. Initially before crossing the road, it LOOKED RIGHT for vehicles and then crossed the road after realizing that the road was free. I was shocked and thought it is just an illusion. But my shocks were true. After reaching the middle of the road, it rotated its head again and looked LEFT at the oncoming traffic and then crossed the road again.

Another day, I was travelling in the car and there was a cow moving ahead of us .There was a car parked ahead of the cow, so the cow moved right. But there was something odd. It swayed its tail to the right before moving right. After continuous horns by cars behind it, it moved left and gave way for the cars. Again it wagged its tail to the left before moving left. Nice of it to give indication before it turns!!Lol!!

After the above incidents, I started giving more attention to the cows in the road looking for more such interesting incidents.

There was one lazy cow sitting relaxing by the road side. And the best part-it was directly sitting under the Parking Zone sign board. Nice Coincidence!!

Another interesting fact, cows always walk behind one another unlike us where we walk beside each other ignoring the busy roads and traffic.

Do these things happen only in Bangalore?? No, i have noticed similar odd stuff happen in Chennai also!!

The Chennai weather proved to be harsh for the cows also. One of the cows actually stepped inside a Volvo Ac Bus waiting in the bus stand as it couldn’t bear the heat outside. A child sitting in the front was shocked and started shouting!!The conductor had to rush and push the cow outside.

In Chennai near the HP petrol bunk in Vadapalani, i noticed a cow standing and facing the road. I thought it was just crossing. I was wrong!! Its back was right above the garbage bin and its shit fell right into it. Nice cleanliness habits!!LOL!!

I looked for reasons behind these abnormalities and Wikipedia provided the exact answers I wanted.

Many of you would have come across Darwin’s theory of Evolution. Some quotes from Wikipedia which gives the explanation,
"An animal or plant is developmentally flexible if when it is raised or transferred to new conditions it develops so that it is better fitted to survive in the new circumstances". Genetic changes may result in visible structures, or may adjust physiological activity in a way that suits the changed habitat.

The same applies here. Humans have destroyed the fields and erected buildings and constructed townships. So the animals staying in those areas either adapt to the change or become extinct. Surprisingly it looks that the cows have adapted to the traffic and busy streets of the city!!

Pretty much, we can few Cow Crossing Boards in our city.They might prove useful!!
