One night as I was at a shop, another customer (unknown/stranger) came. I could sense or say it was evident that he had already alcohol/drinks.
As the casual talk began, and background, I spontaneously said to him “ You are from North /part of Karnataka!” He was positively surprised and exclaimed in the open “yes, but how did you know?”. I smiled and moved on to the overall things.
The Constitution topic came. I was just observing and based on happenings, societies etc. I said what constitution! Just name sake and printed that’s it!
How many follow!?
The person positively instantaneously affirmatively respectfully and genuinely convincingly said, “No,” “There’s Constitution. It’s because of the Constitution that nobody can just come or even touch you. let alone harm you!”
I was happy that people are aware and respect the Constitution and know the very significance. Even a lay man, even half drunk, part drunk or whatever not, did/doesn’t matter; even he knows it and irrespective of drink/time, but very consciously.
Yes, that’s the Constitution for You, Me, and all in this country.
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!
Instead of just specific days, can’t we just every day morning first up & so on & before rest/sleep be grateful to the Life & Creator/Supreme Being & that all lives equal, & genders equal & unique & complement & complete each other & one another. Why just #InternationalWomensDay or #InternationalMensDay or other genders (InternationalOthersDay or InternationalThirdGenderDay) or so!?
For that matter, both Ishwar & Shakti, Mata o Pita, we do prarthana & gratitude. So love the Bharatiya true Sabhyataa Way of Life.
Also, let’s acknowledge & respect the Genders – uniqueness and specialities. Be aware, but not discriminate or deny. Biological difference be acknowledged, so equality means: not just making it equal for the sake of it and everything or special privileges thereby. Be grateful for the uniqueness. Genders yet Gender Neutral. It’s Life within. Acknowledge & gratitude.
(bullet shots…) The Mahatma is no more! The evening has been silenced! Nation standstill bewildered dumbfounded! हैराम!🙏 Irony that it was NathuRam (Godse or God’s sake) who fired the shots! (of course GandhiJi didn’t know or did he that it was Nathuram (did he meet/know him before?) so he uttered Hai Ram! Nope, it’s culture we say Ram Ram Satya Hai, Ram Bhajans did he listen to more or Vaishav bhajans or gaan? He just remembered the Lord ShriRam! But it has been mystery/mystified(!?) who killed GandhiJi! When someone says Gandhi, it has been implicitly referred to the Mahatma/Bapu or his lineage/legacy! not otherwise. though Gandhi surname is not just on him. There’s a whole lot community. महात्मा गांधी पुण्य तिथि। वैष्णव जन तो…
