This is one amazing round up for Diwali and for World Vegan Day!. Happy Deepavali!
There is celebration in the air. Diwali/Deepavali is like Christmas back home in India. Everyone preps up sweets and savories and big meals, cleans up the house, keeps it lighted through the night. We meet up with friends and family and spend time chatting away and eating the goodies. It is an amazing festival, but how many of us really know the significance of the celebration? The festival of Diwali symbolizes the victory of light over dark, good over evil and knowledge over darkness. There are several tales and reasons behind the festival. It is to celebrate the goodness in everyone, the prosperity, health and knowledge. The knowledge that we choose not to know, by choosing to exploit animals to celebrate our happiness.
Let us include the same animals in the celebration this year. Let everyone be happy and celebrate with us. Let us make this Diwali Dairy-free so the cows can keep their young calfs and can celebrate the bond of motherhood.

It is also World Vegan Day today. Vegan or not, many of us care about animals, health and/or care about the environment. Today, in honor of World Vegan Day, I would love for you to take the passion for one or all of those things and do something about it. It is not that difficult to choose to eat plant-based with so many options around. Sure it is a bit of a chnage initially in the way you shop and maybe how and what you cook. But it becomes a norm very quickly. Here are a few tips to help with the transition.
