Author/Creator: Sidney Schuler
One Sentence Summary: The article discusses the status of cow and yak in the Himalayan country of Nepal.

Description: of past difficulties in applying these to non-Hindus, and the implicit ambiguity of the old legal code in regard to the traditional customs of various local communities. The third section illustrates some of the ways in which the low-status connotations of beef-eating have been adopted by the non-Hindus in their own self representations.
