In many religious sects of the country, dogs are considered sacred as it is believed that they stand guard at the doors of heaven and hell and that feeding food to dogs will save from ill effects. With a strong belief in the religious sects, a group of people in the city of Barmer have started a unique eatery to feed the stray dogs.
The eatery is located within Mokshdham, the city cemetery and serves food twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. The food is carefully prepared and cooked by the Raju, who also runs a small dhaba or cafeteria near the crematorium. Raju believes that just like for humans, dogs too need care especially when it comes to their food.
The eatery serves food in plates and each dog has his own plate to eat food from. Mr Bhawani Singh, councillor in Barmer Municipal Corporation and Mr Bhurchand Jain, a dog lover are credited with coming up with the idea and setting up the eatery. The restaurant is getting help and donations from different sects of the society and people are generously contributing towards the running of the eatery.
