Tip&Trick by Prabeen for Veggies &Vegans! Say You've Allergy to Non-veg


Go Veg, World!

Uncomfortable scenario at Non-Veg eateries especially the West or anywhere where same vessels &cookery used for both Veg & Non-Veg food! & Non-Veg cooking Staff & others around frown upon or query or cannot understand or seen confused & wondering!

Tip&Trick for you and all honestly.:

Hey Veggies, just say You have “allergy” to all those meat etc. & so not same cookery/vessel or used oil or items already being in meat contact! That works.

The West is very alert & cautious & serious to Allergy. So any packaged food if you see there’s label so & so. E.g., Allergy to Lactose, Peanuts, seafood are known. Not to the meat they know of. Hopefully, the practice of separation & isolation of cooking stuffs comes in.

Hopefully, All World Health Organizations & Govt. realize this is as Allergy is True Fact may not be always visible in extremes but a reality.

Then it will be truly fully Veggie. & truly Hygienic & Sanitized & Isolated. This is even more important in view of the Virus Pandemic/spread or any possible Contamination or Infections.

Till then Veggies have widely to depend on only Veg places or home prepared/cooked food only! or sometimes eat whatever Veg item available in mixed places.

Any way, by being Veggies, you’re already doing so good to yourself & around and to the World not just climate but overall health, life & balance. This “V” is so Very Good. All the Best! Cheers!

DEVI: Lesson 1 of “!nfinity” : Who said “What’s in a NAME!”?: Correct Pronunciation for Effective Communication – Cross Culture – Foreign/Indian Language/s – Names. A guide to Non-Indian speakers.


Lesson 1 of “!nfinity” : Effective Communication: Pronunciation – Cross Culture – Foreign/Indian Language/s – Names – Who said What’s in a NAME”? Shakespeare!

It was my first onsite assignment (software / IT) that too in the USA for the same client I had been working for from offshore India. (Down the Memory Lane… years back)

DEVI: yes, one day, many years back, my American client (point of contact – a male incidentally) called a lady (a few feet away) by her (not so) name “DEVI” (‘TheyVii‘ / ‘TheyVee) but as “DayVi” / “Davi”!

I was beside him, & immediately smilingly corrected him, it’s not “DayVi” / ‘Davey’ but Devii (TheyVee): ‘D’ as in “The” like “’The‘ Computer”!

He immediately got it and pronounced it correctly “TheyVii”. And he was so happy and excited that how easy it was to pronounce it! He wondered and exclaimed how nobody told him so easily earlier ever! He was also sad that he had been always calling out the name (effectively the lady) so incorrectly (on a regular basis as both of them were on work interaction constantly). The lady “Devi” also smiled.

I checked sometime back: even the dictionaries – at least online official ones & wikipedia even don’t have that easy pronunciation! (yes some audio available these days of course.)

You can thank me if you would like for this simple & easy but so precious yet invaluable tip! 🙂

note: Incidentally, “Devi” / “Devii” is an Indian (Indian subcontinent!) / Bhaaratiya name meaning “Goddess” / “Mother Goddess”. You can refer to dictionaries/ online / wiki for the meaning alone of course.

disclaimer: I have run “Spelling and Grammar check via word-tool” of this post. Even then pardon for any grammatical/typo!
