PETA Protects Animals

 PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is an amazing organization for protect innocent animals. I think PETA has played a pivotal role in convincing people to thrive on plant-based diet (vegan)...

Thanks to Ingrid Newkirk, and thousands of PETA volunteers across the world for selfless service. Today, we don't see elephants and lions performing in circus, as PETA has worked for years to stop "animal cruelty". Thanks to PETA, millions of students are using interactive computer simulations instead of killing frogs , cats, and pigs during "animal dissection".

Please visit PETA to know more about their amazing work...

Climate Change is Killing Our Beautiful Earth

Global warming is causing air pollution, droughts, floods and hurricanes across the world. Animals, and people across the world are suffering...

What we eat every day has an impact on our environment. People can combat global warming by eating plant-based food every day. United Nations is urging people to eat less meat and dairy products.

Today, I read a very interesting "Questions and Answers" about Global Warming, Solar Energy,  and Electric cars in New York Times.

October 2 - World Farms Animals Day

Mahatma Gandhi is a legend. Today, Mahatma Gandhiji's principles and ideas is followed by millions of people in India and across the world. President Barack Obama and Martin Luther King Jr consider Mahatma Gandhi as their inspiration.

Mahatma Gandhi was born more than a century ago on October 2 in Gujarat, India. Mahatma Gandhi followed the principle of Nonviolence to free India from the British.

Mahatma Gandhi had great respect for animals. When he was a young adult, he took a vow not to consume cow's milk after he came to know the cruel procedure, Phooka or Doom Dev. Unfortunately, this cruel procedure still takes place in many countries. Mahatma Gandhi says, "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated." I'm sure Gandhi would advocate vegan diet (cruel-free diet) if he were alive today...

To honor Mahatma Gandhi, October 2 is celebrated as World Farms Animal Day. Thousands of people are motivated to go vegan on this day.

Vegan Diet While Traveling

 Many vegetarians and vegans feel that it hard to find good plant-based food while traveling to new city or country. Before visiting any city or a country, I always make sure to visit the website HappyCow to get an idea about the vegetarian and vegan restaurants. And I always carry delicious dates, cashews and almonds.And I also have chutney pudi (Indian spice blend) to mix with oatmeal to make masala oatmeal!

Today, I read an interesting article - How to stick to your vegetarian or vegan diet while you're traveling. Here is the link...

Cruel-free( Vegan) Lunch in Schools


The 18th century gave rights to man. In 1786, the French national assembly passed a bill of human rights. The 19th century gave rights to slaves, thanks to Abraham Lincoln, who did not mind facing a civil war. He said slavery is a sin against humanity. The 20th century gave rights to women. The 21st century will give rights to animals. ---

It is so good to know that so many schools have started vegan food option in numerous schools across United States. Recently, I read that seven High Schools  in Los Angeles area have started offering vegan food. And in India, German International School has started offering vegan food!

Our world will be filled with eternal love, peace and prosperity if everyone thrives on vegan fare(Plant-based food).
