A popular radio host, positive thinker and Facebook friend of mine, Miss Rita Limbu, posted that someone called her crazy because she is a vegetarian.
You know, I have learned that a little madness helps a lot to enjoy things that normal people simply cannot. Just cause you are vegetarian, someone calls you crazy, then that person is missing something, you know!
Please let no one make you feel inferior. It is a healthy choice and also a pro animal right act to be a vegetarian. If we cannot give a life then let’s not take one either.
Remember! When that mosquito bites us, we cannot tolerate that pain, can we? How about that goat, chicken or pig? Why kill them?
Humanity, if we have got a little bit of it, should help us keep from harming any animal.
One incident: I was on a Tempo heading to Ratnapark (main public transportation hub in Kathmandu). These women were talking about the market prices skying up. One lady goes on expressing her biggest concern- “This is a month of Shrawan (many fast during this month, worsip lord Siva, unmarrieds ask for perfect husband and the marrieds ask for longer age to their husbands, nice practice, isn’t it?) and still the meat price is not getting cheaper”. I say to myself, really??
Growing up in a village the only time we ate meat was during the festival of Dashain (the biggest festival of Hindus), and we were fine. These days you see in Kathmandu, every next store is a fresh meat house.
I cannot stop someone from eating meat, I would not either but may be we can be more conscious of our acts.
See for yourself if you really need to consume meat. Do you take it just cause it taste good or does your body need it?? Proteins you can get from the beans!!
I will be very grateful if these words mean something.
