|The Rubhus created a cow from skin of a cow. (RV. 1-161-7, 3-60-2, 4-36-4). It was the first ever production of a living clone, from a part of a body namely skin of a cow. The modern science has now proved it possible by producing a lamb Dolly from udder of a sheep. Udder is nothing else but a part of skin.

I have posted articles on the Advanced Concepts in Indian Texts and Philosophy.
This includes Mathematics, Value of Pi,Trigonometry,Aphorisms for quick calculations, Genetics,Quantum Theory,Particle Physics, Surgery including Cosmetic Surgery,Chemai cal analysis, Botany, Astronomy, Biology….
I have posted articles on how Mitochondrial pairs are found in the Chamaka Prasna, How Shiva Linga spewed DNA.
Now there is further information ,thanks to pioneering research by Dr.Vartak in Indian Texts.
The Vedas, especially the Rig Veda describes procedure for Clonig a Cow from a Cow’s skin.
1.Selection of a suitable cow.
This is determined by the quantity of Milk yielded by the Cow.
2.Rearing the Cow.
The Cow was fed on natural diet and to facilitate increased Milk Yield , its Calf was left nearby to induce the Cow to secret more Milk naturally.
3. Taking the skin of a Healthy Cow.
4..Produce anew Cow by cloning.
Three Rishis , Rubhus were the scientists who carried out the project.
‘the Rubhus gave new mothers to orphaned calves. This fact definitely shows that Rubhus were working on cows.
Rig Veda states that Rubhus were fully engrossed in the work of creating a cow etc. and therefore they refused to attend a Yajna. However, they promised to attend the Yajna after completing the work’ (RV.1-161-3)
For their great research they had to maintain a cow shed and protect their cows, just like a good son protects his mother. For their experiments one cow was not sufficient. They needed many cows. Therefore, they organized cows in great numbers, which were kept safe and protected in the cowsheds. During their experiments many cows might have died, leaving behind their calves orphaned. For those orphans they had to give new mothers and for that reason they organized mothers. (Apinshat RV. 4-33-4 ).
To produce plenty of milk a cow must have her calf nearby. This psychology of cows must have been noted by them so that they worked on mothers and calves. They must have examined human mothers and children also while doing that research. (RV. 1-111-1)
While doing this type of research on cows and calves, Rubhus attained a great knowledge and were inspired to produce a living cow from a cow’s skin. This was held by the sages as a divine work of great talents. Hence it cannot be neglected as a toy making. A hidebound man without thinking seriously may say that Rubhus prepared a toy, having a shape of a cow, from some hide. But then that work would not have been held with high esteem as is done by the Rigveda. Moreover, toy making needs no preliminary pains of working continuously on cows and calves for a prolonged period, neglecting Yajnas, as was done by Rubhus. Again, the Rigveda says that Rubhus made a living cow which was made a mother by producing a calf from it. (RV. 1-110-8). That newly prepared cow was named as ‘Vishvaroopa’ and it was ‘Vishvajuvam’ (RV. 4-33-8), which means matching with the world. It was similar to the other cows in the world. Bruhaspati accepted this cow Vishvaroopa happily, as a gift, which was created by Rubhus.(RV. 1-161-6).
The Rubhus created a cow from skin of a cow. (RV. 1-161-7, 3-60-2, 4-36-4). It was the first ever production of a living clone, from a part of a body namely skin of a cow. The modern science has now proved it possible by producing a lamb Dolly from udder of a sheep. Udder is nothing else but a part of skin.
The Rubhus produced another clone by their supreme intellingence.(RV. 3-60-2). They created a horse from another. (RV. 1-161-7). The Rigveda not recorded from which part of a horse they produced another horse. One may say that a horse may be produced by copulation of a horse with a mare. But in that case no sensible person will ever say that Rubhus created a horse. It is a nature’s creation. In the Rigveda the verb used is ‘Atakshat’ This verb may suggest carpentry; but that horse was not created from wood or timber, it was created from another horse. (RV. 1-161-7). It took involvement of Rubhus for a prolonged period. (RV.1-161-3). Therefore carpentry is out of question. Then the only thing remains that the Rubhus cloned a horse from another horse.
To achieve that knowledge Rubhus worked with horses too. (RV. 1-111-1). To begin with they produced two horses, and trained them to be yoked to a chariot. (RV. 1-20-2). These two horses were presented to Indra. They were very fast and powerful. (RV. 4-35-5). After this work they produced a horse from another horse with their intellectual skill. (RV. 1-161-7, 4-33-10). That horse was called as ‘Hari’ and was presented to Indra, who accepted it. Hari was yoked to a chariot. (RV. 1-161-7). This fact proves that Hari was a real living horse, and not a toy.’
