 Idiotic Things Non-Vegetarians Say To Vegetarians In India

It's really hard to be a vegetarian in India. Day in and day out, you're bombarded with all sorts of  questions and comments from Non-Vegetarians who feel like its their divine duty to convert you to the "meat-side." And while other people aren't treating you like you're some kind of vegan alien, you're struggling to find places which actually have a decent selection of veg food.  

So if you're a vegetarian stuck in a land of meat-eaters, I bet you've heard some of these before. 

1. “Kya? Tum Non-Veg nahi khaate?!?!”

Wow. I just said I'm a vegetarian. Did you figure that out all by yourself?

2. “But then from where do you get your proteins?”

I don't. Really, I don't get any proteins at all. I might just drop dead in a minute or two. Just don't eat me, okay? 

3. “It's cool, hang out with us and you'll start eating meat.”

Does the same principle apply to all things? Because I've always wanted to fly. Maybe I should start hanging out with birds...

4. “Hum tere khaane mei bina bataye chicken mila denge!”

And I will return the favor by mixing poison in yours. Yay!

5. “Kabhi nahi khaya? How's that possible?”

I don't know ACP Pradyuman. Go figure. 

6. “Ghar pe bhi koi nahi khaata?”

No. Everyone at home is a pitiful creature who's missing out on the best things in life, like me. 

7. “Tumhara chicken toh paneer hai. LoL.”

Your face is Paneer. Screw you. 

8. "Arey, iske birthday pe toh cake bhi eggless aayega."

Don't worry about it. I'll get you a Tandoori Chicken flavored cake.
