What is your message to everyone on going meatless?:
My message to everyone is: Try to go meatless, you don't have to force yourself, but just think...
Going to the temples and offering thousands of butter lamps is just the same as not eating meat.
Start by stopping one or two types of meat and then gradually stop it all . I started with pork and
beef then I stopped eating chicken, fish and other white meats. It takes time but do it now. I am
doing it as soon as my son turns 2.
Tandin Bidha saved at least 50 chicken(s) till date.
