In a conversation a person said to me that, "We should concentrate on human’s right first". My answer: "Fighting for human's right is good... my question here is, How does being cruel to animals help us to fight for human's rights?""Superiority of humans is reflected by saving helpless animals not killing them."

This is a very easy recipe to make laddoos at home. They can be called as 'Adadiya' but all raw vegan. To make this you need 1 part Peanuts, grounded. 1 Part dry coconut powder, 1 Part sesame seeds grounded. Dry prunes, cashews quantity as desired. A pinch of Poppy seeds called as Khus Khus seeds, dry ginger powder called as Sunth, Cinnamon, Clove, Cardamom, jeggary powder, 2 part of date pieces. It is ook if you have one or few ingredients less or more. You can just adjust.
Mix all these ingredients in a mixture/ grinder. Now make laddoos out of this mix. It takes very little time to make these. They are very healthy. I save them in refrigerator. I usually eat one daily. I carry around in a small box with me. When I am hungry, I quickly eat one! Very filling, and satisfying.

This season, I am eating only organic mangoes. I got to taste Kesar, Alphanso, Ratna, Payri, Rajapuri..all these varieties. I believe in biodiversity. Organic mangoes taste very sweet. You feel very satisfied. In fact you will not like to eat any other mango which is fed with some chemical fertilisers or ripened with some chemical.
I ate mangoes as it is or as vegan milk shakes. Mango vegan milk shakes can be made either with cashews milk or almond milk or soy milk or of course coconut milk. You can even try combination of milks.
I also make smoothies with banana, papaya, mangoes and some greens like palak( spinach), tandaljo( amaranthus), mint, coriander leaves etc.
You can order some organic mangoes from Paresh Shah.His contact number is 9987035898.
I also got some dry mango chips from a healing center that is into raw food.
At home we also made many pickles from raw mangoes apart from making a raw mango drink every day!
If you got extra mangoes, just make juice, and freeze it with the seed( lets the colour remain original) to use later or freeze mango pieces to use in ice cream!
Being vegan, you enjoy much more eating all this healthy food.

Fortunately I was raised a vegetarian , but I converted to a vegan diet and lifestyle
once I realised the simple fact that cow's milk is for the calf and not for human consumption.
Also, the cows go through unimaginable horror and the calves are usually seperated from
their mothers at birth. The best part is that cow's milk can be completely substituted
with numerous cruelty-free plant based substitutes like soyamilk, rice milk, coconut milk, almond milk etc
and yeah...before hitting the sack everyday, I feel so much peaceful thinking
that I haven't harmed a cow today ! :)
I strongly believe in this :-
The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more
than black people were made for white, or women created for men. - Alice Walker
Go vegan and end the violence ! :)

A team of vegans from Kranti protested against KFC by holding banners and distributing pamphlets that talk about veganism.
Many passerby vegetarians and families came and encouranged us and inquired about the alternatives to milk.

Shashank from Kranti and his brother Prasoon from DIYA(Divine India Youth Association)
conducted a seminar on veganism where they showed short documentaries about the cruelty
going on behind the industrialized farming of animals like cows and chickens.
The venus was D.Y Patil medical college and it had an attendance of about 120 students.
Many students were so shocked , they couldnt believe that so much cruelty goes on behind just a moment
of sensory gratification while having meat or dairy.
Lots of eeekks and oooh and 'covering the eye' reactions were seen among the students.

It was a valentine day lunch meeting for Mumbai Vegans. Surely, we should have some nice sweets! There was cake, fruit salad, Mung & Chana Daal kheer in coconut & almond milk,and rice kheer to satisfy our sweet tooth! Apart from that there were two new kinds of patties. One was Kand patties and other was Brinjal patties. Both were zero oil recipe...cannot believe it?? No oil and yet very crunchy, tasty! Poha salad was very nice as we were told by Lakshmi that poha were soaked in coconut milk! This time we let each person explain their recipe fully so that other can also learn. This was followed by lunch, screening of the film 'A delicate Balance'. This was followed by inspiring sharing and discussion about vegan diet, health, animal rights etc. Meetings are indeed best way to stay inspired....

Another Potluck lunch with some new Mumbai Vegans who discovered us through this blog! A lot of variety of food...all vegan and very tasty. The film on Raw food for reversing diabetes was very inspiring to those who are taking steps to reverse their diabetes. No oil cooking demo was just perfect for those who are wishing to reduce oil in their diet.
