Harish Bhimani (on Wikipedia)

Indian listeners might recognise the voice behind Mohandas in episode 13 onwards. Harish Bhimani narrated the 1988-90 Indian TV adaption of “Mahabharata”, amongst many other roles.

Know Your Roots

The earliest known object to mention vegetarianism was both discovered and lost during the twentieth century. It remains missing, presumed destroyed.

On what would be the 106th birthday of the society’s founder Donald Watson, I blog for The Vegan Society about the importance of remembering where we come from. And making sure that our own recent history is preserved.

Vegan Pizza in India: The Philosophy Club café

During my recording trip to India, I discovered an amazing vegan café in the city of Ahmedabad, in the strongly lacto-vegetarian state of Gujarat. I review it in this guest post for the food blogger Fat Gay Vegan.
