    I don't think we were talking about vegetarianism.

    Beef is pretty damn rare. Chicken, lamb, goat and fish are all over though.

    Cows' sacred status send Indian beef sales soaring
    Cows may be sacred in India, and beef consumption frowned upon, but that doesn't stop the country exporting the meat.

    Indeed, India is to top the US as the third-biggest beef exporter next year, on America's own estimates.

    And it will come within an ace of stealing top rank from Australia.

    India will account for nearly half of world growth in beef exports in 2012 "on increased supplies and price-competitive shipments to emerging markets", raising shipments to 1.28m tonnes, double those in 2009.

    Wow, I didn't know that. When I said rare I meant in terms of finding it to eat.

  9. The food in India is so damn good, you don't miss meat really. Or McDonald's and KFC for that matter.

  12. I went semi-vegetarian whilst in India, purely because I absolutely loved the veggy curries. And a little bit because I saw how they treat the meat.
     
  13. As far as I know you are not in India.

    That is true, and I doubt I ever will be
     
  15. I think you would make a lovely Indian.

    I don't see it, but thank you, I guess.
     
  17. Yes, it was a compliment indeed. Gotta look with your third eye to see it, dear Piaf.

    The food in india has been so damn bad at times that it has become near pickled in spices and cooked to oblivion to conceal it's unsavory elements

    I agree, that it seems weird for vegetarians to be going to McDonalds or KFC in the first place. Mind you, like anyone, I suppose there are vegetarians out there that just still eat crap.
