Otarian – hoping for the ‘good news’ that it will be vegan!

Australian billionaires Pankaj and Radhika Oswal are launching a new worldwide vegetarian restaurant chain called ‘Otarian’.

“Meat eating is creating bad karma and you are also creating a vicious cycle. It’s destroying us environmentally, economically and socially. I’m putting my money where my mouth is. I’ve always been a vegetarian so I have always felt strongly about it,” Radhika Oswal.

……….but rumors are circulating that it is going to be an ‘ignorance based’ menu – selling dairy! So it is terrible news for cows if this turns out to be true!

When Chrissie Hynde planned her restaurant ‘The Vegiterranean’ – http://www.thevegiterranean.com/ – in Akron, Ohio the pre-launch material said that ‘milk & dairy’ would be on the menu – but fortunately sanity prevailed & it opened as a fully vegan operation.
