Severed cow heads in front of meat market selling beef meat, in Meghalaya (India)

It may sound strange, but in some regions of India, people do eat cows.

I took this series of photos in a village in the East Khasi Hills, a region of the Meghalaya State in North-East India, inhabited by the Khasi people. Khasi people were animist but most converted to Christianity, and they do eat beef.

In this village, several meat shops were selling beef meat and they displayed the severed heads of the slaughtered cows on the ground in front of their shop. They have no fridges so the animals are slaughtered early in the morning, and all the fresh meat and organs must be sold by the end of the day.

For more info about the Khasi people, read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khasi_people.
