During this period, I have heard many talking about non-veg, and how they miss it. What is the use of fasting, when one can't stop thinking of what they have absolved from? I wish they could change, at least after seeing the benefits of having vegetarian meal.
October for Vegetarian Awareness
For many, it seems to be very difficult to be a vegetarian even for a day. As a die-hard vegetarian, I try my best to make my family eat vegetarian food. Luckily, as per our family custom (also followed by many Vaishnavites) my kid and hub are forced to be vegetarians as a kind of fasting, during the Purattasi month which is from 17th of September to 17th of October.
