Going vegetarian!

~ If I can do it, so can you ~

Hi everyone,

My name is Aryan Notani. I am a third grade student of Learning Unlimited. I would like to share one part of my life story with you.

As we all know, November 25 is Sadhu Vaswani's birthday and we celebrate it as International Meatless Day. Many people send their pledges on this day. For me, this day is very important. This day has changed my life.

Two years back when I was asked to do community service by selling meatless day T-shirts and asking people to pledge to go meatless for a day, I asked myself, "Why become meatless?" While explaining to people to go meatless for a day, I myself got convinced to become vegetarian. If I can do it, you all can do it.

Did you know that you can save water being a vegetarian? It takes three to 15 times more water to produce animal protein than it does to produce plant protein.

You can be healthy and smart by being vegetarian. I eat a vegetarian diet and use many veg items instead of meat to have protein in my diet.

This healthy diet holds the key to being fit. Being a vegetarian has many benefits and no negative effects.

What is interesting is that plants, especially beans, can easily replace meat. Furthermore, vegetarian meals are cheaper and very healthy.

Not only is it good for us to be vegetarians, but it is also good for the whole environment.

I'm going meatless

~ Why aren't you? ~

Hi,

I am Saheli H. Kirpalani, seven years old, and am proud to be a vegetarian since birth, with the blessings of Dada J.P. Vaswani (Our Family Guru).

My Dad always says my favourite line, when it comes to food. From my early childhood, it was "No chicken, no fish, only French fries and veggies!"

I was also the youngest participant of the Meatless Day Walkathon in 2011 and 2012. Every year, as an offering to our Guruji's Master Sadhu T.L. Vaswani, whose mission started the Meatless Day on November 25, I try to feed the brother birds and animals at the farm and the zoo. I like to visit them, spend time with them and feed them.

My message to each and every person young and old, one and all is, "Why should we eat beings when we can eat beans? Go veg!"

Even if you are already a vegetarian, feed the needy animals when you see them and you will see in their eyes how happy they feel!"

We should all feed animals and not feed upon them!
