Beautiful Bollywood Ladies Go Vegan

Beautiful movie stars from Indian Cinema are loving plant-based fare. Kangana Ranaut , Ayesha Takia, Neha Dhupia,  and Jacqueline Fernandez feel so good about vegan diet. I'm sure thousands of Indians are inspired to go vegan...

Kangana Ranaut grew up eating chicken biryani, now she makes "vegan biryani" using the same spices, and masala blends used for making chicken biryani!

Bollywood's greatest star - Amitabh Bachchan is  a vegetarian. He finishes his meals with a dollop of yogurt. Amitabh Bachchan still acts in movies - he is around 73 years old. He still blogs every day...

I hope Amitabh Bachchan becomes a vegan. I'm sure millions of Indians will go Vegan if Amitabh Bachchan becomes vegan. I hope someone explains that modern "dairy products" causes pain and suffering for millions of cows in India and across the world.

Here are few interesting articles about movies stars and vegan diet...

Dr. Sailesh Rao - Vegan Environmentalist

Dr. Sailesh Rao is an amazing person involved in noble cause. He is passionately trying to protect our beautiful Earth.  Today, Global warming is taking a toll on our Earth and scientists feel that life on Earth will be very difficult in coming years...

Nearly a decade ago, Dr. Sailesh Rao heard a talk about Global Warming by Al Gore. It was a period of Epiphany for Dr. Sailesh Rao, when he heard the degrading condition of our Earth.  Dr Rao quit his engineering job, and started Climate Healers in Arizona.

Climate Healers is involved in healing the bruised Earth. Clean air and reforestation is the primary goal of Climate Healers. Today, due to hard work of Climate Healers, you can see millions of trees thriving in Rajasthan , India.

Dr. Sailesh Rao believes that it is possible to combat global warming if everyone thrives on plant-based diet (vegan diet).   Dr.Rao also feels that shopping once year is a great idea to save our Planet!
