Why India? - why Indian vegetarians need help from the West


The Vegetarian Society (Reverence for Life) and the undersigned being the Gen. Secretary welcome you to the 37th IVU World Vegetarian Congress. This is not a routine congress or a seminar but a special one and I welcome you from my heart. And you not surprised that a congress like this is in India, a country full of spiritualism and Vegetarianism and a majority of the population is vegetarian.

Globalisation has made ther world smaller and there is more interaction between the countries and its human beings.

Non-Vegetarianism is travelling at a fast pace from West to East. Younger generation is sitting on the fence, not knowing where to jump.

This Congress is to create an awareness of vegetarianism. We welcome all to Goa, India, the venue for the congress.

Heartiest welcome to everyone!!!

Jashu Shah General Secretary The Vegetarian Society (Reverence for Life)
