A lot of Miss Universe contestants say that they want world peace, but how many work towards it every single day? Former Miss Universe Lara Dutta, for one, is doing her part. She maintains, “Even seemingly small choices can have a big impact on our health, our community and the world around us”. So she does yoga regularly and never eats animals because she refuses to support the violent meat industry. “Going vegetarian”, Lara says, “is one of the easiest ways to improve our health, help countless animals and protect the Earth”.
Tathaastu magazine, which is devoted to meditation, holistic healing and serenity, took notice of the Bollywood star’s peaceful lifestyle and featured her full-page PETA ad in its September-October issue free of charge, thereby promoting cruelty-free vegetarian eating to its many readers.
Mahatma Gandhi famously said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”. Anyone who wishes to see more peace in the world can simply stop buying the flesh of animals who were cruelly tormented on factory farms and painfully slaughtered.
Tathaastu also featured an article by Benazir Suraiya, PETA India’s lead media and celebrity coordinator, about Lara Dutta and other celebrities who are vegetarian.
