You are in great company. We recently met Rahul Khanna (and yes, he is as gorgeous in person as he is on screen) and guess what he told us. That he thinks PETA Youth is great! He has been on the site and has even checked out our message boards so guys keep posting those messages. You never know! You might end up chatting with Rahul! By the way, he looks bruised in this photo because it was taken at a PETA ad shoot and he was in character. Keep checking this site to learn what shoot that was!
The company known worldwide for its meat burgers and milkshakes, celebrated "Meatout" an annual affair organised by vegetarian advocates, at select outlets in Bangalore and Thane by offering a "Vegan Meal" for two days this week, thanks to the efforts of vegan advocates from Bangalore-based activist group DIYA (Do It Yourself Activists!).
McDonalds Indias Vegan Meal promotion consisted of a regular iced tea and medium fries at the menu price of Rs. 52, which could be used to complete a meal of one of the many McDonalds India vegan main dishes, including McVeggie, McAloo Tikki and Crispy Chinese, which come on a bun and are also egg- and milk-free. Vegan consumers can easily get these delicious veggie burgers with ketchup or chilli sauce instead of mayonnaise and other dairy-based toppings any day of the week.
Check out our Foodie section for a list of places to get awesome vegan food. McDonalds India is not the only company to offer products labelled as "vegan" in India. For example, popular chain Cafe Coffee Day includes a "vegan shake" on its menu which contains no milk or other animal products. Lush India marks many of its soaps with a green "V" to indicate they contain no animal-derived ingredients, and Vicco Vajradanti labels its toothpaste "vegan".
Vegan food is good for animals and many times better for our health than meat. A Vegan Meal is truly a Happy Meal. Speaking of vegan McDonalds, have you ever heard of Reggie McVeggie? That is apparently Ronald McDonalds compassionate twin brother. No, he is not a McDonalds product, but a product of McVegan , an invention of Vegan Action McVegans motto is "billions and billions saved".
Pamela Anderson was recently approached by a fan at Elton Johns post Oscars party who was wearing a fur coat. Before the fan could even get near her, Pam reportedly let out a disgusted shriek and ran off. How could such a big fan have missed the fact that Pamela Anderson is completely opposed to the murder of animals for fur?
After winning PETA India Proggy Award for Best Cruelty-Free Luxury Fashion, Hemant Trevedi has now taken on the task of being one of the talented people to train some lovely ladies for a reality television kind of beauty pageant. Compassion to animals must be at the top of the list of useful tips that Hemant is giving them.
petaDishoom pal Luke Kenny is passionate about animals, vegetarianism, and films too. Just thought we would let you know that his film, 13th Floor, is out in select places now. The film stars Sandhya Mridul and Purab Kohli. We hear that it was written in what Luke refers to as "Bombay English". That should be fun, especially for you Mumbaiites.

Poorva works with us on petaDishoom. Last night, she was walking through the Juhu market, playing with stray dogs, as is her usual evening habit, when a drunk old man, swaying and stuttering and spitting and smelling of cheap whiskey, shoved a mouse into her face, hoping the little creature would scare her so that he could get some weird childish pleasure in watching her run.Poorva did not run or even flinch. Instead, she grabbed the mouse from the man and tried to calm the mouse in her hands. The poor little mouse, though clearly domesticated, was shivering with fright and his little heart was thumping so hard, Poorva thought it might thump right out of his little chest if she was not careful. One of his eyes was half shut from infection.
Jayasimha, a PETA campaigner, agreed to give shelter to the mouse for the night at his flat where the little guy nibbled biscuits, drank water, built a nest of shredded paper and made his home in a baby shoe. PETA will ensure its new little friend receives veterinary care and a home where he has love, company and plenty of space to explore.
Now here is something that all vegetarians already know: Vegetarians make better lovers. It is simple biology. Meat clogs arteries to ALL your organs, not just your heart, which could lead to an embarrassing performance problem. Eat veggies. Feel alive. Be sexy. Be happy.
