You look so strong… are you non-veg?

You look so strong… are you non-veg?

De beveiligingsman van het kantoor van Dipti in Varanasi durfde mij zowaar na drie dagen voorbij komen een paar vragen te stellen. “Where are you from? What is your name? How old are you?” Na de laatste vraag beantwoord te hebben, keek hij met bewondering naar me. “Ooohhh….. you still look so strong.” Na even nadenken: “Are you non-veg?”

N.B. voor de niet India kenners: het standaard eten in India is vegetarisch, alleen de rijkere mensen eten vlees.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
