Read the following lines from the song ‘Balleilakka’:
ammiyil arachu aakkivacha naattu kozhi patta kelappum
aadu maadu mela ULLa Paasam
veettu ration card-il serkka solli kaetkum
What’s the need to have such contradicting lines? How can the same person who kills and eats chicken (For God’s sake, it’s a baby!), love goats and cows when in all probability he might be eating those as well?!
Though I was born vegetarian, however, in the past few years, vegetarianism is something that I strongly support and I can now say am a vegetarian by my own choice. The very thought of killing a living animal pains my heart. Eating it later is something even worse than that! I can’t stand the very thought of it! 🙁 Every time I pass by a meat shop, I close my eyes hard!
I don’t eat in a place that serves both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food unless I have no other option at all and I am satisfied that both don’t get mixed up there. I guess I will be the only one who has not eaten pizza in any of the popular pizza chains for the only reason that they serve both veg & non-veg! The most difficult part comes when I travel to some place. I almost survived on biscuits and ice creams when I went to Ooty during my college tour. I don’t know what I will do if I travel abroad though I have no plans of going anywhere away from India. I have now given up eating cakes (I love cakes! 🙂 But then, who doesn’t? 😉 ) having eggs too. Hmmm. Enough for now.
I wish a time comes soon when many adopt vegetarianism. Of course, not all dreams come true. Sigh!
P.S.: Thanks to Prabhu for suggesting a nice title for this post 🙂
