In Cambodia, a local woman has been making rounds on social media after claiming that a five-year-old calf is the reincarnation of her late husband.
Cambodia’s population is 98 per cent Buddhist, indicating that many of its citizens believe in the theory of reincarnation.
“I believe that the calf is my husband because whatever he does…is in exactly the same way as my husband did when he was alive,” 74-year-old Khim Hang recounts.
The video posted on the internet featuring the calf shows how it climbs up the stairs into Hang’s home. There, it is fed, washed, and led to rest on Hang’s late husband’s pillow.
Over a hundred people visit her home every day ever since the video’s posting online. Many of those tourists believe that this calf truly has a man living inside.
TRIVIA PA MORE (Various Sources): Excerpts from the very useful book Living With Folk Wisdom by Abercio V. Rotor, Ph.D:
Agriculturists use a soil moisture meter, now electronically operated, but old folks have simple methods to test.
Acidic soils are usually rich in organic matter or in hydrogen ions.
It used to be that bignay or bugnay grew extensively in forest, thickets, wastelands, field borders and in backyards.
You seldom find it anymore, and this means it is an endangered species.
