After Sejhal Shah here's another guy from Pune, who is a senior Cancer doctor has covered his Mahindra XUV500 with dung and talks about its benefits.
Applying cow dung coating on the cars is nowadays trending in India. People are doing such experiments to beat the scorching heat. Earlier, we have seen Sehjal shah from Ahmedabad who becomes an internet sensation for using cow dung coat on her Toyota Corolla. Now, this trend has started catching up the fire. Recently, we've got some new images regarding the same. Dr Navnath Dudhal, a senior doctor from Pune, has covered his Mahindra XVUV500 with cow dung to save it from the extremely hot temperature of Pune. Mr Dudhal claims that the cow dung keeps the temperature of his car cool and it also helps in the prevention of pollution as the air conditioner is not used much. Images clearly show that he has completely covered his SUV with cow's waste except for the headlights and glass area. He said that the car has been given three coats of cow dung. According to him, the temperature of his car on the inside has been reduced by 5-7 degree Celsius as compared to the outside temperature.

Dr Navnath Dudhal stated that “Three coats of cow dung have been applied over the car and it stays on the car for a month. Sun radiations do not harm the car’s roof directly therefore, the temperature inside the car is 5-7 degree Celsius less than the outside temperature. The cow dung is removed by water and rubbing it with a cotton cloth. Cow dung stains do not stick to the car’s body and neither the car paint is affected. For some time, the smell of cow dung is felt inside the car, but after a while, no smell remains inside the car."

Mr Navnathan is a senior doctor at Tata Cancer Hospital in Mumbai. He said that he has got this idea as he everyday reads about the benefits cow urines for cancer sufferers. Sachin Punekar, Founder President of Biospheres, an organisation working with the mission of conserving biodiversity, said, "There is no such research on whether car coated by cow dung repels heat. One needs to assess it properly and then go further with the method. I do not understand the idea of coating car with cow dung, because once the metal is exposed to sunlight, it will heat up. But if this is method really works, then the scientist and researcher should work on it. We can adopt new technology by doing so."
