He is the cow

This is reported to be the successful essay written by a candidate from Bihar for the IAS (Indian Administrative Service) entrance exams.


The cow is a successful animal. Also he is 4 footed, And because he is a female, he give milks, (but will do so when he is got child.) He is same like-God, sacred to Hindus and useful to man. But he has got four legs together. Two are forward and two are afterwards. His whole body can be utilised for use. More so the milk. Milk comes from 4 taps attached to his basement. (horses dont have any such attachment).
What can it do? Various ghee, butter, cream, curd, why and the condensed milk and so forth. Also he is useful to cobbler, watermans and mankind generally. His motion is slow only because he is of lazy species, Also his other motion.. (dung) is much useful to trees, plants as well as for making flat cakes (like Pizza), in hand and drying in the sun.
A Cow is the only animal that extricates his feeding after eating. 
Then afterwards she chew with his teeth whom are situated in the inside of the mouth. He is incessantly in the meadows in the grass. His only attacking and defending organ is the horns, specially so when he is got child. This is done by bowing his head whereby he causes the weapons to be paralleled to the ground of the earth and instantly proceed with great velocity forwards. 
He has got tails also, situated in the backyard, but not like similar animals. It has hairs on the other end of the other side. This is done to frighten away the flies which alight on his cohesive body hereupon he gives hit with it. 
The palms of his feet are soft unto the touch. So the grasses head is not crushed. At night time have poses by looking down on the ground and he shouts . His eyes and nose are like his other relatives. This is the cow.


But apart from the night-time “poses”, the meaning is quite clear even if the language is a little eccentric. And this candidate has clearly actually seen and felt and been chased by a cow.
