Dr. Neal Barnard visited Mumbai City with 5 lectures for doctors at various hospitals and a one day workshop on Reversing Diabetes. The workshop was fully booked well in advance. The participants were very eager to learn. The questions coming from the participants were all answered well and we wish to see all of them putting into practise all diet changes and reversing diabetes. Dr. Neal was very inspiring, gentle and clear in his presentation. A very new way of eating and living for diabetics! In future we will surely have more such events. Next weekend is 3 day event by Dr. Neal in Bangalore. Its worth it!

Meghna was just returning home from work in a rickshaw. At the signal, she saw something black moving on the side of the roads. Crows were eating something, black looking. She wondered what it was. The rickshaw went ahead. She asked Rickshaw driver, what it was? He said, crows were actually eating puppies who were just born. She was so shocked by this. She asked the Rickshaw driver to turn back and take her to the spot. There were probably three puppies. But of two , only body parts remained. The third one was also in the process of being eaten, with tail part already gone, bleeding, almost dead! She picked up this one and brought her home. She took her to the Vet doctor...full nurturing & tender loving care.... and puppy opened her eyes after many days! She was so tiny, fitted in Meghna's palms!
Now....the attachment is too strong....here is the picture! Puppy is alive, full of joy and life!
Meghna is a Mumbai Vegan who is very actively involved in helping organic farmers and making efforts to bring organic food to city dwellers.
Being Vegan means being sensitive to animals....as living beings who have the same right to live as us. Do not participate in any activities that hurts an animal.
