Bisnow in Hinduism, is a religious sect in East India which lives mainly on plants and milk. The majority of the Banians belong to it. The Bisnowans never kill an animal; all sick animals, even insects, are nursed in hospitals specially erected for this purpose. In order to feed fleas, bed-bugs, etc., they hire beggars, who, bound hand and foot, are given to these animals for a number of hours for food. Their god, Ram-Ram, they worship with dancing and music, without sacrifices.
