Almost everyone in these parts sticks to non-veg, with a little chicken and fish thrown in on Sundays. If you're going for something hearty, goat would be an acceptable choice. In the land where cows are sacred, beef is a touchy subject.
Last night in the newspaper, I read that some students at a local university organized a beef festival.
Apparently, things got out of hand. Protestors showed up. They set a van aflame. Organizers got a little feisty. Sticks and stones were flying.
In the end, the police had to break it up with tear gas....over beef.
Makes peta look tame, huh?
