Cow dung is widely used in rural India to keep houses and huts cool in the summer months and other hot periods.

However, the smell of the car can be problematic.

Rupesh Gauranga Das, who placed the photo & # 39; s, said the bizarre new paint job is the & # 39; best use of cow manure & # 39; was that he had ever seen.

Weather forecasts for Ahmedabad, in the state of Gujarat, show temperatures rising to more than 111F (44C) in the coming days.

In May 2016, the temperature in the city reached a record of 118F (48C).

That year saw a record heat wave in India with temperatures reaching a 124F (51C) in a northern city.

Hundreds of people die each year from the heat in India, with May and June usually the hottest months.

It is followed by the monsoon season that sees huge rainfall.

An experiment in 2012 revealed how dung beetles use their waste to keep their legs cool.

Researchers in South Africa and Sweden found that the insects would climb onto a dung ball as a form of & # 39; thermal retreat & # 39 ;.
