Your message brought tears to my
eyes. Literally. At one time I too felt that there was no way I would
give up the burfies, lassies, halwas, and ghee reeking rice dishes etc.
After all what was Indian food without the heavenly aroma of satvic ghee?
And did not our saints use them? At the same time I knew I was but a liar,
and worst, to my own self. Only on making a commitment to a vegan diet and
life-style could I find peace. Knowing that cows and other animals suffer
as they do on the animal farms, it is not possible to use them or their
excretions as guilt free nurture. And now I learn that even in India we
are subjecting the cows to the tortures of dairy technology!
You cannot know what inspiration you
have given me to hear another Indian take the vegan view on butter, milk,
etc. I am saving your post to show others and to use in times I may find
myself making excuses.

That was a very complete and
well-written article on the dairy industry in USA. Even after having
read numerous articles on the subject its left me extremely disturbed.
I've been almost vegan for over 2
years now, since I first heard this horror story. My husband is gradually
converting and our son is born with dairy allergy����

Moods are off after I gone through
your mail. Actually I have seen your mail two days back. In these two
days whenever I take a sip of Tea I am just getting all that matter what
you've written. It is really paining to digest the facts. �������������

Many thanks for sharing your tour
of the dairy. My stomach curdled with dismay. I am an imperfect vegan.
I heard Howard Lyman's speech and a woman animal life right activist came
to me in a dream. My father, from Orissa had a heart attack from a
meat-centered diet. He is a semi-veg now, and has returned to the
plant-based diet of his ancestral past. Your account was moving and I
thank you. I will be sharing it, a lot!

Your article was very nice. I
don't belong to the Jain community but I am a Tamil vegetarian trying to
become a vegan and I am all for non-violence. We have a bunch of
animals (dogs, cats, cows, goats.., rats (?)) at home and we try to be as
nice as possible to these creatures. I could make sense out of every word
you had written.

I am thankful to Mr. Pravin Shah for
giving such information. I am sure very soon you will realize that you
have done very great thing. You are real 'Jain'.

I like your mail very much. I know
that it's not a question of liking or disliking, it's horrible fact.
I am vegi ����.
