A round of applause for all the finalists and a big thank-you to all who took part! The competition was fierce in PETA India’s annual Cutest Vegetarian Next Door contest, but after tallying the votes (and thanks to all who voted!) and sifting through the top picks, we’ve selected the winners. Without further ado, we’re proud to crown Nitish Dua and Sadhna Bourai as the Cutest Vegetarians Next Door of 2018 (insert a round of applause here).
Nitish loves being vegetarian because he believes in not contributing to the immense emotional pain and suffering of animals. “I want to join PETA in creating a global understanding of one’s social responsibility towards them” says Nitish.
Sadhna is a vegetarian and always tries to influence people to replace meat-based meals with vegetarian ones. She actively works for stray animals and believes in the power of empathy. She says “Killing someone to satisfy taste buds is a cruel and selfish idea to me.”
