I'm pleased to inform you about the rise of vegan movement in India.
Currently, these is a period of monsoon in India and during these 4 holy months called Chaturmas, Saints of Jain religion are stationed at a single place where they conduct daily discourses. In other months, saints are constantly on the move from one place to another to spread their religious message.
Fortunately, my city Udaipur is hosting the senior most Saint of the largest Jain sect. So thousands of Jain people from all parts of country keep visiting this place daily. Therefore, we wanted to make the best of this opportunity. We were also fortunate to receive some unexpected donation for this cause.
Jain community is strictly lacto-vegetarian. So we chose to install a couple of huge hoardings to spread the awareness against the consumption of dairy in the vicinity of the venue where Saints conduct their daily discourses.
These hoardings are the first hoarding carrying anti-dairy messages in India in the local language viz. Hindi.
We also put over hundred small boards & banners like the following ones:
We make ourselves personally available on a daily basis to discuss the queries from the public. This will be my place for the next four months.
To increase the visibility, today my friend @chetanpadliya put up this banner on his scooter and parked it near our table.
Here is my friend @chetanpadliya who is a devoted animal rights activist.
I'm proud of my friend @chetanpadliya for always supporting this mission whole-heartedly and taking precious time out for this activity from his busy schedule.
What better day to express my gratitude than a Friendship Day!
Happy Friendship Day to all of you too! Hope you all had a great time in your life with your friends.
