Panjrapol is an animal sanctuary for sick, injured or elderly animals. As in Hinduism, the cow is revered to be very sacred and when it becomes sick, injured or old, people in many cases leave the animal to fend for itself. These are the animals that you see on the Indian roads. These animals should be in a ‘Panjrapol’ where they can be looked after and cared for if sick. But there are very few Panjrapols as it costs to look after the animals – the cost of building a shelter, supplying food and water and the staffing cost. Pujya Bapu has opened a Panjrapol near Bilkha, about 10km from Chaparda where about 400 animals are being looked after.
