'Hanging' cow art triggers protest at Jaipur exhibit
INDIA---Pro-cow activists on Saturday forced organizers of Jaipur Art Summit to remove an installation art work, a dummy cow hooked to a balloon, which was, ironically, put up to depict the message to save cow from the menace of plastic waste. Supported by a balloon, the art work was floated at a height of nearly 100 feet just before the official inauguration of the summit, held at Jawahar Kala Kendra, by Baroda-based artist Siddharth Karwal.
