After celebrating Halloween by dressing up in spooky attires, the next day marks World Vegan Day, a day which symbolises love for animals as well as willpower. November 1 marks World Vegan Day across the world. Veganism is a practice in which one abstains from all animal products including milk and chocolate. It is practised both as a diet and a philosophy. This concept is quite new to India but has started gaining momentum in the country. There are couple of countries and societies which celebrate World Vegan Month, entire November.
