Anaparthi (East Godavari) Oct 15: Donkey is often considered as stupid animal but its milk's cost is more than any premium branded dairy milk.

There is famous proverb in Telugu “ Gangi Govu Palu Garitandinanu Chalu, Kadavaditenemi Kharamu Palu,” which if literally translated into English gives the meaning that a spoonful of cow milk has more value than a pot of donkey milk.

But this saying is no more relevant in present days as donkey milk cost is skyrocketing. Nomads from Mancherial in Adilabad district migrated to the town few days ago. They are selling donkey's milk at a cost of Rs 6,000 per litre.

As donkeys usually give only 250 ml milk per day, people are queueing up and paying advances to procure the milk.

People believe that donkey's milk has many medicinal values and helps to cure in breathing ailments, cough, cold, indigestion, asthma, joint pains etc.

Usually donkey's milk costs Rs 2,000 per litre, but the price jumped to Rs 6,000 due to the sudden spurt in demand.
