Veganism in Vogue: A Lighter Experience
We were all blissfully aware of two major dietary preferences until a decade ago – vegetarian and non-vegetarian. The last few years saw the rise of many more alternatives: Paleo, non-dairy, Keto and, yes, Veganism. India with its high vegetarian population finds it easier to embrace this trend. But veganism takes it all one step further, by completely eliminating animal produce from one’s life.
It comes to many as a sudden transformation, especially when there is so much out there online and offline about the V trend. Yet, it doesn’t really have to be a sudden and overwhelming transformation. Rather, it just needs to be a gradual reckoning, taking stock of one’s own needs, true sentiments and comfort levels. As the awareness builds, habits and practices can change. To what extent they do, differ from person to person. So, tread light and find the way.
Can it be called the lightness of being?
Veganism implies the absence of meat, fish, milk, honey, and eggs from your dining table. It also means wrapping away the silks, woolens and leather in your closet. Are your eyebrows raised? Consider this and lower them: Vegans believe that theirs is a more sustainable, compassionate and lighter way of life. In being animal-free, they reduce the burden of their existence on the planet and on all fellow beings. Their life choices are life goals – they impact larger global issues like climate change, health and economies. All such heavyweight issues challenging the Earth get lighter by plant-based eating, drinking, and living.
All veganism promotes, is a fair-play of coexistence. It means taking a step back to zoom out and consider all factors that make the ecosystem. In the largeness of this system, the interconnectedness is intricate and delicate. Excessive exploitation of the animal world for human consumption has led to compassionate minds thinking from the other perspective.

Veganism is seen as a fad by some. But at Empyreal Club, it’s a lifestyle that is here to stay. With prominent personalities like cricketer Virat Kohli, actor Shraddha Kapoor and a number of other athletes vouching for veganism, it sure seems like the way of the future. Mumbai, for instance, recently hosted Ahimsa Fest, which saw over 10,000 people coming together for a compassionate lifestyle. A lighter life, after all, is a loved life.
