Hi everyone, my name is Dushyant Kumar and I live in New Delhi, India.
New Delhi is the capital of India.
Basically I belong to Agra City...
If you know, Agra is the city of The Great Wonder, Monument of Love,
"The Taj Mahal".
I have shifted to New Delhi for my graduation studies. Its been now more than two months. I study in Jamia Millia Islamia University. Yes, as the name suggests, its a Muslim university, one of the most prestigious universities in India.
I am a Hindu and belong to a Veg family. But now I am in Jamia where almost every friend of mine enjoys non-veg. Though its no problem for me to survive there but many a times I have been suggested to taste chicken. My friends tell me that its one of the most tasty thing we can have. Though they do not actually provoke me to eat, but its just that they influence me in one way or the other.
We all know very well that our habits do change according to the surroundings we live in.
But today I raise a serious question in front of you all that how can a person live being so odd?
My family is pure vegitarian and so I am.
One fine day I asked my mother that everyone around me is a non-veg and my friends say that I should at least taste once. My mother said our religion Hinduism and our family beliefs don't allow us to be non-veg. I argued that there are so many non-veg Hindus also, like this they shouldn't be following Hinduism then. Concluding the whole matter my mother said....
" Eat non veg if your heart allows !! "
And, yes, these were so big words....
I asked my heart and there came a BIG NO...!!
Because at some corner of my heart there is a feeling for those innocent lives, those innocent animals, who are killed and whose lives are snatched away just to make our dishes tasty...!!
And my heart says that I can't eat someone's life as my food....
I mean they also have a right to live..don't they?
God has created everything, and so everyone has equal right to live their life.
I cannot destroy any animal's life just to have an amazing taste.
And there I learnt something....
No matter in which surrounding you live and survive, if you are vegetarian and if you have decided to be vegetarian.....you will be a happy vegetarian...!!
So, this is all I got from my experience.
