Gandhinagar, 25 November 2020
People from all over the country have believed that the people of Gujarat are vegetarian. But with political changes in the last 25 years, egg consumption has increased since the advent of Hindutva ideology. People of Gujarat are now egg eaters. There are 14 states-less feeders compared to Gujarat. Gujarat which used to give the message of non-violence, has started eating more eggs there. Gandhi’s theory of non-violence is no longer in the time of Hindu ideological state power. Despite Jain Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, egg consumption is increasing. The report released by the central government reveals the availability of eggs in each state.
29 eggs are eaten
Goa, Daman-Diu, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Nagaland, Pondicherry, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Assam, Sikkim, Himachal, Rajasthan, regions eat fewer eggs than Gujarat. Up to 24 eggs are eaten in these states. Whereas in Gujarat, on an average 26 to 29 eggs are eaten in a year. The average person in India eats 61 eggs a year. If half the population eats eggs, then 10 eggs a month in India.
With the onset of winter, egg consumption has increased.
Vegetarianism and non-violence were prevalent among every citizen of Gujarat 25 years ago. The message of non-violence here is that despite having millions of followers through Jainism, Vaishnavism and the Swaminarayan sect, the passion for egg-eating is higher than that of citizens of other 14 states.

What did Gandhiji say about eggs
Gandhiji wrote in the experiment of truth, 17th chapter that eating does not mean to suffer, but to live. In the diet, not only meat but also eggs and milk were abandoned. Drinking milk is only four child, but not the other animal. Humans have ruled the animals and birds, not to kill them. Food Pantry, Pudding, cakes contain eggs. That is why I am not eating eggs.
