"The peahen gives birth after it gets impregnated with the tears of the peacock," Rajasthan High Court judge, who suggested cow to named as the national animal, said later in the day.
Mahesh Chandra Sharma, Rajasthan High Court judge, who took many by surprise by recommending cow to be named as country’s national animal, has now said something utterly amusing. Speaking to news channel CNN-News 18, Sharma said that Peacocks have a unique quality – they don’t indulge in sex, and are still able to produce babies. “Jo mor hai, yeh aajevan bhramachari hai. Kabhi bhi morni ke saath sex nahi karta hai. Iske jo aasu aate hai, morni usse chubhkar garbhavati hoti hai, mor ya morni ko janm deti hai (The peacock is a lifelong celibate. It does not have sex with peahen. The peahen gives birth after it gets impregnated with the tears of the peacock. A peacock or a peahen is then born),” Sharma said.
The High Court judge gave the remarks while explaining the depth of his judgment on why the cow deserves to be given the ‘national animal’ tag. He was telling the media about qualities of the Peacock, the national bird of India.
While delivering his order earlier in the day, Sharma said: “Nepal is a Hindu nation and has declared cow as the national animal. India is a predominant agriculture country based in animal rearing. As per Article 48 and 51A (g), it is expected from the state government that they should take action to get a legal entity for cow in this country.”

“It is expected from the government that it should declare cow as national animal and for this purpose, the Chief Secretary and Advocate General of the state are declared legal custodians of cows,” the judge said in the 145-page order.
Earlier, speaking about the judgment, Justice Sharma told ANI that issue of Cow is related to sympathy, conviction, and faith, and that’s why protecting and respecting the cow is an important factor.
He added that people should come up in protest to the issue, only then animal’s could be safeguarded.”The way we respect our parents we should respect cows,” Sharma said.
