Do you observe JANGSEM Mondays?:observe
What do you think about Jangsem Monday movement?This is indeed a good start but i hope everyone of us will cut down on meat completely some day.
Why do you think it's important to go meatless?:By going meatless, we can reduce the impact of climate change, rain forest destruction, and pollution, while saving water and other precious resources.

Snow leopard and pandas
What do you believe in or should we say your motto in life?:
My motto in life is to create awareness among all the illiterate and irresponsible on the benefits of going vegan and the ways we can work together towards conservation of mother nature as a whole.
What is your message to everyone on going meatless?:
Cutting out the meat, even if it’s only every once in a while, means you’ll likely include more beans and lentils in your diet. Nutritionally sound and affordable, these foods should be a regular part of our diets, but many people don’t use them. Beans and rice are a starting point, but think of the soups, chilis, salads, pastas, wraps, and other dishes you could get creative with! The beans will deliver a healthy dose of fibre, have a low glycemic index, and provide a great vegetarian protein source along with other nutrients, including iron.
