Ashok Tyagi says – “We are becoming completely modern, and as a result, we are moving away from our land. We have stopped paying attention to our farmers, agriculture, cows, and bulls. Overall, we are forgetting the invaluable aspects of our Indian civilization and culture. That is why we are bringing the film “Godaan” based on the novel by Munshi Premchand, which will create awareness among the people about rural life and the safety of cows. It is our good fortune that our noble cause has also got the support of Sir Sangh Chalak Mohan Bhagwat ji.
