Do you observe JANGSEM Mondays?:It's very difficult to observe it here every Monday since I eat in school and chicken and pork are almost on the menu but I try and avoid it on all religious days here as well as back home.
What do you think about Jangsem Monday movement?I personally feel it's a very good initiative for someone like me who actually wants to be meatless but cannot because of situations here where finding meatless menu is hard. I really got inspired when I read it on facebook and that's how I keep myself updated about JM. It's a platform where one get be motivated to go meatless for a day which can eventually turn into weeks and months.
Why do you think it's important to go meatless?:I actually became vegetarian after i return back from college back in 2013 but then later after coming to Thailand it was too difficult so hard to leave it but then It's not always that I take it. Whenever I see the possibility where I can avoid it I do. I also got inspired from many of my friends whom I encountered here and after listening to their stories about going meatless i got more inspired. I as a Buddhist, I always had the heart for all living beings be it any kind of animals but especially here they consume so much that land up questioning myself why? I can't stop others but I can definitely go ahead and do it once I am determined to do so .
Are you a vegetarian or vegan? If yes for how long and why?:
I would say it's way a little difficult to turn into vegan but I am going to be 100 percent vegetarian and I have already given a trial for that. It's been couple of weeks and it shouldn't take long to eventually get used to it.
Has it benefited you and how?:I would definitely say it will because I had been once I feel so comfortable and healthy from within even I could avoid it for a day. The time I say my small prayers and when I go to bed, I always dedicate my pledge for all the living animals whose lives were taken every singe day just to fullfill the human cravings. But we do have options to survive even if we go meatless , whereas those animals get don't get any choice to live or being slaughtered. We shouldn't be selfish for our own cravings when it comes to those innocent lives.
What are your Favorite veggies and fruits?:I've always love all kinds of friuits and vegetables, I have no favorites as such.
Your Favorite animals? Domestic or wild?:
I have always admired animals and it's just fascinating to see them all in various sizes and shapes, I do love dogs and rabbits as pets.
What do you believe in or should we say your motto in life?:
Well my motto in life is just go for it if you need something in life, don't wait for it to come to you.
What is your message to everyone on going meatless?:
I respect and appreciate all those who are already doing this but for those of you who wants to be on the same boat as me I would definitely say yes to it and let's make a little difference in the lives of the innocent animals. Let's be good humans by heart not just by religion.
