Click pen from India, on Amazon or EBay.  A Devenagari four nib set (there's also an English set, with the nib ground in a slant in the opposite direction) costs $9.99, which includes the cost of shipping.  This is a eyedropper filler set, very inexpensive.  I just ordered the English lettering version which is slowly making its way to the US from India, so I cannot comment on its usability or quality, but for less than $10, I'm all in.

It doesn't sound like the cows suffered at all. Cow urine is a very sacred substance to a devout Hindu.
Unfortunately, I've watched too many episodes of "The Incredible Doctor Pol" to feel quite the same way about the stuff that comes out of a cow.

I was referring to the fellow who was running around collecting cow urine just so he could do a bit of calligraphy...
