Govina Haadu,or Song of the cow (also called, Punyakotiya Kathe or Punyakoti's story) is a story about a cow named Punyakoti, who inadvertently crosses path with a very hungry and fierce tiger named Arbhuta. Based on a story in Mahabharata, this beautiful, soul stirring song has been part of Kannada folklore for thousands of years.

Listen to know how:

-Punyakoti convinces Arbhuta to let her see her young calf one more time before he makes a meal of her.

-Arbhuta is influenced by Punyakoti's beliefs and actions.
